Experiential learning is viewed by many as the ideal setting for learning and retaining complex information. Recreating this learning environment virtually is often a challenge. The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Texas Wesleyan University overcame this challenge by using Adobe Captivate to create interactive screencasts tutorials to transition from their previously face-to-face workshops for use in their Online Teaching Certification Program. The screencasts not only engage the learner through experiential learning, but also provides an environment that mirrors the learner's actual context. This paper will discuss the importance of experiential learning in an online format through screencasts.
