Hi Brianna, glad you like the screencast idea.

One thing I’m hoping for is that other people will take each of the screencasts and make them better, wiki-style (not sure if it will take Kaltura adoption for this to really take off). At AboutUs we have the YouTube version of a video on a page that we can then transclude anywhere we need to on the wiki, which means when a better version of the screencast is made, we just replace the old with the new on the source page (can’t do this at YouTube itself, unfortunately), and it changes everywhere. I sure wish we had universal transclusion so this version you have on your site would update when a better one comes along.

In any event, thanks for the post. Would love any suggestions you might have on how to make these better. Thanks!

Thanks Ted. It’s cool that you encourage people to improve them. Collaborative video is still quite tricky. (I am not sure Kaltura will be much of a leap forward.)
