Does any one have some suggestions for good utilities for when teaching with Accordance for Windows?

 

I am specifically looking for utilities that highlight the cursor or a portion of the screen, automatically show the computer keys as they are pressed, and/or allow one to draw highlights, arrows, rectangles, and other annotations on top of application windows. I'm very familiar with these kinds of things for Mac, but not for Windows.

 

Thanks!

Would this be live training or a video podcast?

If, it is a podcast then I would recommend camtasia studio 8. On TechSmith's website you may download a trial version for 30 days.

Thank you!

 

Actually, I own ScreenFlow for Mac, which has largely taken the place of Camtasia for Windows.

 

I was thinking more of things like Mouseposé  (a cursor highlighting tool) and Ink2Go or Ultimate Pen (screen annotation tools). What do PC users typically use?

 

Note: I actually just completed a podcast on "Teaching Tips and Handy Apps," which focused on Mac users. That's not to say we can't do one later for PC users, though.

Here are a few ideas:

 

There is a program called pointer focus that may do much of what Mouseposé does:

and another called Presentation Assisatant

http://www.presentation-assistant.com/

 

KeyPosé

See a video of it here: http://jungsbluth.de...se/keypose.html

 

Or, you can write a script for Key input callouts:

see http://www.windowsli...een-426583.html

 

 

Now, I am going to check out that new video of yours. :)

Oh, very good, thank you.

 

I wish we had had this conversation before I produced the podcast!
