What is Screencast:

A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture with audio.

Mr. Shrinivasan shared Videos screencasted for Linux commands in our regional language, Tamil and for Introduction to gtk-recordMyDesktop application in English. We learnt some basic things that how the screencast should be made and how the video & audio quality should be.

Idea of Screencast is to learn, understand and reach the things easily to the people.

Moreover, we had a Skype call with our special guest Mr. Kannan Moudgalya, IIT Bombay.

He is doing some service to make the FOSS(Free Open/Source Software) Society in India. Screencast is one of his services. Main objective of screencast is to spread the awareness of FOSS to the students who are studying in the rural area throug the CD.
