Generic name for production

I may have asked this a long time ago but am still struggling.

What do others call their finished Presenter productions (especially when they are not intended as eLearning lessons)? I am looking for something short, descriptive and somewhat catchy.

Slidecast has been suggest and in general use seems to cover it. Any other names or descriptions that people use?

Hi Brian! I've seen folks share some pretty creative names in similar discussions... here are some:

Skill-builders

Walk-throughs

Guides

Tutorials

Demos

Virtual lectures

Lessons

Quick reference guides

Job aids

eSeminars

eCourses

eScenarios

eSimulations   (lots of e's)...

Resources

Learning objects

Articulations

A good rule of thumb is to name them according to their purpose of value that they're providing the learner. In other words, you might end up calling different projects different names, if they don't all serve the same purpose. Some might be job aids, some might be demos, some might be simulations, etc.
