Sketch Your Presentation With Sketchcasting

Posted by on Sunday, February 24th, 2013

This is a neat idea that I found out about through Jim Kukrals blog, Sketchcasting!

The idea is to create a video, much like a webcast, but rather than show the concepts you are talking about, you draw them. If you have ever seen any of the Whiteboard Friday videos over at SEOMoz you will get what I mean.

Let me explain with a Sketchcast I tried to create


Unfortunately attempting to embed the video sends our blog template squiffy! Ah well, you can follow the link instead.

As you can see and hear, I didn’t do a very good job! The problem I found is while in the real world I could write and draw quite naturally, the sketch recording feature seems right now to be very jumpy and the sensitivity is off. Unless I draw really slowly it doesn’t put the pointer where I want it to.If you check out the site though many people seem to have got the hang of it, perhaps it is just my low-powered Mac at fault?

Try it out and see how it works for you. I think it could be a fun way to create tutorials and creating live Mind Maps.

Do let us know in the comments if you try it out and how you find it?
