5 Minute Guide to Screencasting

Our PHS students are currently developing screencast presentations, so I thought what better way to model this skill than by making a screencast tutorial of, you guessed it, how to make a screencast.

After presenting last week at a Flipped Learning Workshop in Braintree, MA, I also realized how useful a quick guide would be for educators.

Here I demonstrate the use of Screencast-O-Matic, a simple (and free) web-based screencasting software.  Although I develop my screencasts (including this one) with Camtasia Studio, which I highly recommend as well, Screencast-O-Matic is a great tool for students and teachers who are just starting out with screencasting.
