What's a screencast? A video recording of my computer screen and my mouse movements. A great tool for showing your Users how to change their My Account info, add Content to the web site, and anything else they need help with.
My users -the members and the maintainers- are very knowledgeable in their field, however, their field does not include using computers.
I had written step-by-step instruction sheets, but the users often got overwhelmed when they first viewed the page. They would holler out, "I cannot do this" before they ever tried it. This year I decided that screen casts would be a better solution. They would only see the one step at a time and it is easier to show the menu options than it is to describe it in text.
These resources are the ones I will use. Please add your suggestions, resources, and advice.
