Edited By Mariusz Marczak and Jarosław Krajka

This volume explores multiple dimensions of openness in ICT-enhanced education. The chapters, contributed by researchers and academic teachers, present a number of exemplary solutions in the area. They involve the use of open source software, innovative technologies, teaching/learning methods and techniques, as well as examine potential benefits for both teachers' and students' cognitive, behavioural and metacognitive development.

Use of Screencasting for Delivering Lectures and Providing Feedback in Educational Contexts: Issues and Implications


There are a variety of factors that affect learning and teaching in educational contexts. Among these factors, teachers play an important role in student learning. Teachers not only deliver materials to learners but also guide learners in their learning experiences. While doing this, teachers allow learners to notice the progress they have been making and motivate them to further improve their skills. Teachers also benefit from the tools technology provides to them, such as screencasting. A screencast is a digital recording of the computer screen output, including audio narration, which was first implemented in order to show learners how to use computer software through demonstrations. Since then, it has also been used in educational contexts e.g. to deliver lectures and to provide feedback. This chapter aims to review the utilisation of screencasting in educational contexts and issues which can potentially emerge in the course of it. With this aim in mind, a brief discussion of screencasting is provided, followed by a review of studies within two streams of research which focus on the use of screencasting for delivering lectures and giving feedback. On the basis of the findings presented, several implications and suggestions have been proposed.
