Cool new tool from Serious Magic called Vlog it!
Vlogit looks like a stripped down version of Visual communicator which is a little more expensive.
$50! You can't beat that! As Garin points out the coolest part of the software is the integrated tele-prompter. Yes, the other visual stuff is cool too.
When the presentation is over I will post some shots of the setup Garin Hess created. The lighting solution from Home Depot is a GREAT idea! $50 bucks for the lighting rig too. So, $100 gets you software and lighting. $20 bucks gets you the cheap green screen, but Garin is using the $200 folding screen but its very cool.
Then of course you need a video camera. But even the cheapest camera will do. You can even use a web cam when vlogging yourself.
Vlogit is just another example of how user-generated content is changing the landscape of learning.
