Create your own screencasts:
This video was created using Jing, a simple FREE screen casting tool. I upgraded to the Pro version for $14 a year to enable .mp4 files and direct uploads to screencast.com
If you have never tried it, I highly recommend downloading Jing! Play with this fun simulation to see if Jing is for you:
*Basically this is a hands-on tutorial without having to download anything, except it is really fun to play with!
If you want to use this video or see my upcoming creations, check out my Screencast Page.
You could use screencast to show students exactly what to do on a computer (like a webquest), or leave them for a sub, or create them for parents, or faculty! What do you do with Screencasting?
