One of my first assignments for class was to create an introduction presentation.
It was terribly awkward sitting in my living room talking to a webcam as if it were a room full of people, but I think it turned out OK. So far it seems I'm the only one that recorded a video--everyone else has gone the voice-over-Power-Point route. I'm not sure if that makes me a rogue or a pioneer, but I guess we'll see.
I used VoiceThread, which seems to be a pretty neat program. It's not life-changingly exciting, but it's good for what it's for.
You can watch it here if you're interested.
What is your experience with recording yourself? Do you find it as awkward as I do? Have you used VoiceThread, or something like it?
