Screencasting

Step-By-Step Instructions To Screenrecord or Screencast

 

WHAT IS IT?

Screencasts, or screen capture or screen recording, is a wonderful way to take students through a complicated process. You can record whatever is happening on your computer screen with an added narration. That means you can:
  • walk students through a website
  • demo software available on your computer
  • use a webcam - record yourself
  • practice problem solving
  • narrate a powerpoint creatinga  stand alone video
 
Screencasts can be used for presentations, learning objects, how tos, asynchronous communication, and whatever else you can think of. They do not have to be as polished and professional as learning objects.
 
 
REQUIREMENTS
Desktop computer
microphone (Built in for MACs)
 
SOFTWARE
Screenr is a free tool that lets you record up to 5 minutes. As long as you are up to date on Flash and Java, there are no related downloads. Also, you can choose whether to record the entire screen or just a portion. You can also pause the screen recording and resume. Videos can be recorded in HD and are .mov files that can be edited or uploaded onto Vimeo, Youtube, or OSpace ePortfolios.
 
Jing is another popular screencasting tool for Mac and PCs. It requires downloading and installing additional software. Videos are created as .swf files which cannot be uploaded to Vimeo or Youtube.
 
Camtasia is another webtool to easily record your on-screen activity or import HD camera video, customize and edit content, and share your videos with viewers on nearly any device. Note: It is not a free tool.
 
Quicktime - if you are working on a MAC you can open quicktime, go to file and select new screenrecording.
