Russell’s Reasearch into Feedback
First article on using screen capture for feedback
In June 2006 in the Modern English Teacher, I wrote about the use of screen capture sofware as a way of providing feedback to students. This was followed by an article in the IATEFL
SIG for technology in November 2006. The Times Higher then wrote the first on-line article, when an explanation of my work was covered in their newspaper.

What exactly can Screen Capture Software do?
People often ask me what exactly you can do with Camtasia ( that is the screen capture software I use to make the videos). I have made a quick and simple set of videos to give you some ideas. If you want to learn how to use it, then scroll down and you will see a section where you can get a copy of Camtasia and also access lots of learning videos about using it.

How can you make your own training videos?
Many people have asked me how I made all the learning videos that are on this site. I use a product called Camtasia. It is the same produce that I used for the feedback videos too, though sometimes I use JING. You can buy Camtasia at a discount through TeacherTrainingVideos.com. There are even learning videos on how to use Camtasia. Just click Learning Videos for Camtasia.
