So, I decided to create a couple of short videos for my absent students (and those who just want a second chance). I wrote out my diagrams and formulas, taking pictures with my digital camera at several stages. Then I imported them into PhotoStory and narrated them. Once complete I uploaded them to YouTube.
All in all they didn't turn out that great, but I will definitely do this again. The main problem is the audio is really low. I'll need to invest in a real microphone at some point. Until then I'll have to figure out what went wrong and try to see if I can improve performance.
