    The best way for people to learn with video is with screen capture videos. This way people see exactly what is being done, while you are talking them through it.

    To learn something is definitely in Screen capture or PP.

    Me looking at your face will teach me little unless you teach how to make funny faces.

    Not saying that you have a funny face, OK, you look better then I do.

    I'd go for the screencam video. This is why:

    a) When you're teaching you have to remember that there are different learning styles. Some learn by doing, some learn by watching, some learn by listening, some learn by reading.

    Just you talking to a camera only covers one learning style - listening. You might be drop dead gorgeous to look at, but the novelty would wear off after a while and basically all your students will be doing is listening to you explaining the topic.

    Powerpoint shows are deadly unless done by an expert. What happens is that the presenter usually makes the mistake of putting on the slides the same text that they are speaking. The user is then confused. Do you listen or do you read? You finish up doing neither effectively.

    The screencam is, imho, the best compromise. The user can listen to you talking whilst seeing a demonstration of what you are talking about. I remember the days when I ran courses. When I bought a projector the feedback was amazing - even though my students already had a fully illustrated course book, demonstrations from me on their own machines and a spoken explanation. Being able to see the topic in action, live on screen was a huge bonus for many of them.

    Most of the times, combination of live video and screen capture video is the best.

    I prefer live video and screen capture, showing real example of what you are doing is a good way of making people understand what you are saying.

    Great question!

    I prefer screen capture and power point formats myself.

    Video has been a wonderful way to learn - especially about IM. However, the video needs to be properly edited and structured.

    I don't know about you guys, but I have viewed some videos that only take up my valuable time - even when they are about topics in which I am very interested. Unfortunately, some people have no business teaching on video as they take two hours to explain something that should only take about 30 minutes.

    I would definitely go with screen cam, it is much more engaging and the viewer will be able to learn the information quicker and easier.
