This is a very easy to use screen recording tool from Microsoft that has been around for a long time.
If you have a Mac, this is a great, free and easy tool to create screencasts. It allows you to capture audio and video, screen shots and make screen recordings. Unfortunately, the free screen capture features are only available for Macs. I would definitely recommend it to colleagues who want an easy way to create screencasts with a tool most people are familiar with as quicktime is used so often to watch videos.
This tool is a Chrome plug-in to provide screencasting with a Chromebook. It is simple to use and free. Adds great functionality to a Chromebook for creating “flipped classrooms” and explaining lessons.
