I was interested in trying LightShot - unfortunately although I appeared to be making progress (I got as far as the feather icon appearing in my Firefox toolbar),
|Only a feather!|
|...and an error|
I had more luck with screencasting. I was very impressed with screen-o-matic - it was easy to use - and the results looked very professional (not sure about my content though!). I created a short instructional 'video' on how to use library search. I liked the way it was possible to create a useable guide without having to add a soundtrack.
Unfortunately I failed to manage to get it to upload to YouTube - so you will be spared having to watch my first attempts :)
Good as the widget and the RSS feed are - for me the winner has to be the ability to set up a feed to my Google calender. I was impressed how quick it was to do - now I will have no excuse for not returning my books on time (especially as my Google Calendar is synched with my phone!). Maybe if we can persuade our students to set this up, we should have less people returning books late because they didn't see the e-mail reminder... perhaps!
