Using InqScribe & Morae to study student software use

Here’s an interesting example of an educational researcher using Inquirium’s InqScribe to make a subtitled movie of classroom footage. The students are using [ESRI’s ArcView GIS](] to study plate tectonics in a unit developed by Northwestern University’s GEODE Initiative. The video was captured using Techsmith’s Morae, which records screen video of software use and integrates it with web cam footage of users.

Inscribe subtitles with Arcivew & Morae

This example highlights how InqScribe allows users to control the location, size, and style of subtitles. Note that in this case, the author is taking advantage of InqScribe’s support of custom QuickTime text descriptors to control the font appearance (i.e., software actions are bold blue, student movements are bold yellow).

For an illustration of how to use QuickTime Text tags in InqScribe, see our FAQ on making subtitled text scroll.
