This is a free tool, Java applet has to be configured and accepted each time you use it, which is an easy process. Capture all the movement on your screen, a circle surrounds your cursor so it can be followed, a “puff” is visible when you click the mouse – very easy to use. Students can figure this out as well as teachers. When finished you have options for sharing – YouTube, etc.

This tool is very similar to Camtasia, but it’s free! Create interesting presentations while recording your computer screen. For example, I created a Prezi, then used Screencastomatic to record my screen as I went through the presentation. Then, I uploaded to YouTube.

I thought it was very easy to sign up for and download it had easy access in the apps and was very simple to use. Once finished it’s an easy publish with different options and it takes no time at all. The pro version allows for serious users to get a full capacity of what they are trying to do. Many more features could be added though.

I use Screencast-o-matic to support my flipped learning instruction in information literacy and research skills by creating video clips that demonstrate research skills, such as searching databases, creating citations/Works Cited pages using NoodleTools, evaluating web pages, etc. It is easy to use and to upload created mp4 files to any video storage site. Created videos can be viewed in most browsers with out difficulties.

I frequently make screencasts to demonstrate how to use various web-based educational tools for an audience of teachers. In the past, I have used Jing and have encouraged teachers in school districts to do so as well. However, Jing requires one to download and install the executable file. This is typically forbidden on school district computers. In addition, schools oftentimes filter Jing's cloud-space. I still like Jing, but I recently discovered Screencast-O-Matic. It is just as useful, if not more so than Jing. First, you can create videos up to 15 minutes in length (Jing limits you to 5 minutes). Videos can be downloaded as .mp4. In addition, when you move your mouse, there will be a highlighter on the screen to draw the audience's attention to your actions. Great tool and easy to use!
