New HISD Quick Tips

I can't believe that it has been just a little short of three weeks since I updated this blog.  Well, what with getting ready for school to start, actually reporting back to school for 2 days this past week for teacher work days, it has been hectic.

Even though I have been a little preoccupied as of late and haven't recorded any tutorial videos lately I have been thinking about them and have actually launched a companion to 101 Web 2.0 Tutorials called HISD Quick Tips.

The idea HISD Quick Tips was basically to create a few short, quick screencasts or video tutorials on the fly for use by my students in The HSTE Project.  Well, after getting back to school for a few days and getting to answer a bunch of computer and technology questions from some of my fellow CT&E Teachers I decided that I would have to have find a way to answer their questions qucikly, so HISD Quick Tips is now here!

HISD Quick Tips are not meant to take the palce of 101 Web 2.0 Tutorials, but rather to make it a little easier for me to address tutorials much quicker than the way I envision 101 Web 2.0 Tutorials and try to keep that exclusively for Web 2.0 applications.

I have been using ScreenFlow from Vara Software to create the screencasts.  I liked it so much I decided to pay the $99.00 to purchase the key to unlock ScreenFlow and I think it is well worth the money.


So, I hope that when I have the time to get back on track with creating some good tutorials for 101 Web 2.0 Tutorials.  I know that once school starts, I should be able to devote some more time to do so, as well as it will be a great resource for my students this year.
