Project Chronicle is a free technology preview from Autodesk Research that makes it extremely convenient and easy for users to capture, share, and learn from software workflows. Project Chronicle consists of a recording utility to capture recordings and a website that displays the recordings as Chronicles, interactive video tutorials.

(not your grandfather's Camtasia -- shows commands too)
The utility records a continuous video screen capture and optionally voice narration. What makes Project Chronicle unique is that it also records the timing and details of workflow information, such as the tools, settings, and dialog boxes that are used during the workflow. Captured data is then uploaded to the Project Chronicle Website where other users (that you grant access) can view a video of the workflow. Additionally, the captured workflow events are displayed on an interactive timeline, enhancing the viewing and learning experience. Pretty cool huh?
Technology previews are about feedback. We would love to hear your stories of how you showed someone else what to do.There are a variety of ways to provide feedback.
Non-book-learning is alive in the lab.
