I would like to re-kindle the idea of screencasts. Here it is briefly:
The idea was to script a handful of basic show-and-tell in any
activity (start, work through the activity, highlight the various
toolbar items, and close with a Journal reflection). Record using a VM
or recordmydesktop directly in Sugar, then make the OGV available
someplace. The OGV can be split into audio and video, so we can redo
the audio in different languages and do localization. We start with a
few (six maybe?) and let others jump in.
