Welcome to ANTS!
The Animated Tutorial Sharing Project (ANTS) is a collaborative project presently involving librarians in Canada and the United States, but open to librarians elsewhere. The goal of the project is to create a shared repository of library, research, and information literacy tutorials created using commercial screencast software such as Adobe Captivate, Qarbon Viewlet Builder, Techsmith's Camtasia Studio , freeware tools such as Jing, or cloud computing sites like Screenr or Screencast-o-matic. Tutorials contributed to the ANTS project are made publicly available for use by all libraries via our affiliated broadcast sites: YouTube (LIONTV) , Screencast.com, the Internet Archive, and blip.tv (LION TV) -- site retired. Editable Source code is also available from our DSpace repository - http://dspace.ucalgary.ca/handle/1880/43471 - for those who wish to add their own brands, local links, etc.
