Barbara Goebel's curator insight, October 31, 2015 12:22 PM

I've got feedback for Google forums about this product (colors are too light, no feature to embed the word cloud into the document (I used a Jing-created image.)), but this is a kind of fine revision tool for students.

Tool Review: Head Over Heels in Love with Screencastify | CTQ

In many ways, Screencastify does the same things that YouTube's My Webcam, Screenr and Screencast-o-Matic do.  Users can create recordings -- either directly from their webcam, of their desktop, or of tabs in their browsers.  When recording desktops or tabs, users can also embed their webcam in the bottom right corner of their video -- allowing viewers to see both the desktop AND the presenter at the same time.
