    Evelina,

    This is such a thoughtful reflection about the use of screencasting in your classroom. Having written the course, your thinking helps my own improvement.

    I think you are so right about the power of students relating to you, your voice and your style, in the screencasts. I have seen examples where students can choose between different presenters of the same topic, just because they like the style of the teacher, for example. So there is no professionally done screencast that can replace you.

    It is good to hear about the release of energy you felt not having to explain the same thing over and over again. That makes me immediately think about what you can do with that extra energy, as this can be one of the benefits if screen casting: focus on interacting with your students to prompt thinking, support differentiate learning, etc.

    As you pointed out so well, your students need to interact with YOU. I wonder how you can manage the class time so students can have YOU available for them to support thinking, after they have watched the screencasts. I know there is just so much time students can spend outside class watching your videos. I wonder about the development of a different class culture around individual pacing of learning: when a student is ready, you can be available for him/her to prompt further thinking and activities. Would that be an incentive for them to watch the videos and be ready for class (as much as it is possible..)?

    I would love to hear about your developing experimentation with screencasts!

    Silvana
