How to Record a Screencast

I got an email this morning requesting help with recording a screencast. Since the workshop I'm in right now has to do with Flipped Classrooms, it's the perfect time for me to share some resources to get you started! I like to use screencast-o-matic since it's free up to 15 minutes and is just quick and easy to use. You can find a link to examples that I've done with it by clicking on this link (it also lists the other software I use).

Getting started with it is SUPER easy. Here is a tutorial to get you started:

You can also download and install the software to make it easier and not use plugins. It is really easy to make screencasts with it. Once you make your video, you can publish it to YouTube, to your Google Drive, or just save it on to your computer. I always save the file to my computer and then upload it to YouTube so that I have a backup of it. If you are going to do a short video or are just getting started with screencasting, this is a great place to start. The other software I use, Camtasia, costs money and can be much more time intensive.
