Screencast Videos...

Mar 10, 2016


When you finished your screencast video as "View on a Single Slide", is it possible to switch to "Step-by-Step Slide" or "Show Mouse Cursor"?  Will I have to create a whole new slide?

Not as yet. I am going through the tutorial and just finished No. 20 (Recording a Screencast Video). It identifies each of the options; but, tells you to select "Video on a Single Slide" which I did. When you are ready to insert the video, there are 3 options: 1) Video as a Single Slide (which is the option you are told to select); 2) Step-by-Step Slide; and 3) Show Mouse Cursor. 

Now doing No. 21 (Editing Screencast Videos).  There is no option to switch form option 1 to another of the other options.  Is there a reason for that?  Is that option available?

Hi Michelle!

You can insert the same screencast into your course multiple times. For example, let's say you recorded a software simulation. You can insert it as a video on a single slide to show learners how to perform a process, then you can insert it again as Try Mode step-by-step slides to give them an opportunity to practice.

To insert a screencast you previously recorded, go to the Insert tab on the ribbon, click the Record Screen drop-down arrow, and choose an existing screencast. 

Check out this tutorial.

So, you will not be able to 'swap', but you can use the screencast multiple times and in various formats as needed.
