Screencast-O-Matic - Free online screen recorder for instant screen capture video sharing.

Screencast-O-Matic - Free online screen recorder for instant screen capture video sharing. | Ed tech | Scoop.it
Amazing online screen recorder and quite possibly better than my current favourite screenr. Very easy to use but needs Java uptodate. Can add in captions, have your image in place (via web camera) and record sound. Can download file as mp4 or save on site or upload to YouTube. We have used them for video helpsheets but can you image what they would be like in students' hands! Game Changer? Enjoy, thanks to @ianaddison on Twitter.
