Screencasts
available from Skokie Public Library

Screencasts are brief “how-to” videos that demonstrate specific computer skills. The video is taken directly from the computer screen, while the audio narration breaks down the action into specific steps. We have created a number of screencasts to help you utilize popular features of the Library website. Videos typically run from two to ten minutes in length.
