Announcing new updates to Screencast site!

Dear Screencast Users,

 

The Screencast team is excited to announce updates to the Screencast website, which will go live in November. Over the past 18 months, Screencast users have enjoyed a simple way to capture and share their knowledge. Building on that success, we want to improve the way you tell your story and showcase your expertise with Autodesk products.

 

As we worked on these refinements during the last few months, we concentrated on this new direction:

  • Build Your Knowledge Portfolio. New and better ways to capture and share your knowledge.
  • Showcase Your Contribution. Ways to showcase your work and enhance your social reputation.

 

So what does this mean for you?

 

You Don’t Lose Your Work

All your existing Screencasts are available in your account.

 

Your Knowledge Profile

Your profile is an opportunity to showcase who you are and promote your contributions. Share this page with others in your network. It’s like a portfolio of knowledge that lets others know where you excel. You can also include links to other social media communities, confirming the breadth of your community involvement.

 

 

New Contribution Tools

Posting information to AKN is simple and straightforward. With the new editor, you can document your favorite tips & tricks, product how-to’s, tutorials, and other help or support information. Articles can be in English, German, or Japanese.  Screencasts  can be in one of 14 languages: Chinese Simplified , Chinese Traditional,  Czech,  English, French,  German,  Hungarian, Italian, Japanese,  Korean,  Polish,  Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.

 

 

New Contribution Dashboard

The My Screencasts page is updated to a new Contribution Dashboard. All your assets, including Screencasts, are available on your personal dashboard for easy curation. You can also manage sharing and asset permissions on this page.

 

 

New Home Page for Screencast

The Screencast Home Page is moving to a new location in the Autodesk Knowledge Network (AKN). The home page has a new look and feel and streamlines the way you search for and retrieve Screencasts in AKN.

 

 

 

These new updates will be rolled out in the coming weeks. We do not anticipate any downtime during this time. Your bookmarks and browser links will be automatically redirected to the new website.

 

If you have questions or comments about these new updates or need help with the transition, please reach out to us on the Screencast Discussion Forum.  The Screencast team will be actively monitoring the forum and responding to your questions. We have been working hard to ship these updates and sincerely hope that you enjoy them.

 

Best,

The Screencast Team

Interesting move to put it under the AKN.

 

And great to see a facelift too. Just one comment though.

There is a great deal of wasted space (1/3rd) on the individual screencast page. Can this be improved?

I just wanted to bump my previous comment.

This should be a fairly easy fix which doesn't look as though it has been addressed. If the website admin could adjust the iframe values, with something like 900x755?

Hello Chad-Smith,

 

Thanks for your concern, we all agree that the Screencast player on these pages can more adequately use the space, however, one of the less obvious considerations we had to make were our folks with 1366x768px screens (which make up 14.67% of our users and was actually very obvious on the laptop we were using at AU this year). 

 

As you can see in the Screenshot below, for a screen that's limited to 768px, there is a vertical height limit. Because the video is locked to its aspect ratio, growing the video and player and larger would force the timeline off the "fold," making it hard to navigate the video with the timeline. 

 

Currently our player doesn't have the right switches to be fully responsive but it's something we hope to enhance soon so our Screencasts can aptly make use of space in any environment its embedded into!

I wonder how many actually use the timeline.

Excellent, good to see it on the roadmap. If only for Autodesk's benefit to make your own pages look a little more professional.

I would certainly like to see the Timeline be the responsive component which would minimise/wrap up.
