Screencasting

Seems as though screencasting is taking prominence. Having used Jing and Screenr I'm always curious to see how people are using technology. In one sense, screencasting is used to demonstrate (with audio comments) technological processes. Screencasting can also be used to narrate PowerPoint presentations. With all of the technological advances, can it be possible to use screencasting to teach? and to learn?

PowerPoint presentations with video images may personalize the presentation. Instead of viewing slides, or listening to slides with audio narration, adding video may provide the connection between presenter and audience.

Is this media effective for teaching ALL subjects? all learners? I believe that video has the potential to improve teaching for SOME students, but is screencasting the ideal media?
