Our Newest 3 Minute Tech Tool Tutorial: Screencast-O-Matic

Our Newest 3 Minute Tech Tool Tutorial: Screencast-O-Matic | Moodle and Web 2.0 |

"Screencasting, or capturing what you do on your computer (or tablet) in a video format while you narrate your actions, is one of the most powerful functions that modern computer technology has delivered to today’s educators."

Via Beth Dichter, Elke Lackner

EmergingEdTech has been running a Try-a-Tool-a-Week Challenge and this week Screencast-O-Matic is the tool of the week. If you have not used this tool and are interested in doing screencasting (also known as screen capture) take the time to review this video.

The free version allows you to record up to 15 minutes, but you cannot edit the film. There is a paid version for $15 per year, which allows for editing and unlimited length! Screencast-O-Matic may be used as a web app, or you can download it (PC and Mac).

This is one of my go-to tools.  I use it for so many things.  It's a great tool for tech support when you can share a screen with someone.  Make a quick video to model what they should be doing on their computer.

This article includes a video tutorial on Screencast-o-matic, a video capture tool that can help you create videos for your students to help them in their learning.

How to Record Your Desktop with VLC

How to Record Your Desktop with VLC | Moodle and Web 2.0 |
VLC is full of powerful features, including the ability to record your desktop. VLC is great for quick captures, although it doesn’t necessarily have the more advanced features of a dedicated screencasting application.

21st Gen EdTech Tools: Jing and Screencast-O-Matic: A Great Screencasting Tools

21st Gen EdTech Tools: Jing and Screencast-O-Matic: A Great Screencasting Tools | Moodle and Web 2.0 |

How many times you clicked on "print screen button" in your computer just to capture an image displayed in your screen? Or, how many time you recorded a video of yourself using your webcam or simply used your video camera/mobile phone to take a video from your screen just to add this file on your presentation? Isn't it so annoying and time consuming to do this stuffs over and over again? There are two tools that I am using to capture an image or record a video from my screen

Robin Good's curator insight, June 20, 2013 12:17 PM

StartMeeting, a cost-effective multi-feature web conferencing and collaboration service has introduced StartMeeting Studio, a free tool which allows you to record your own presentations, tutorials or screencasts, archive them online or download them and share with your readers across key social media channels.

StartMeeting Studio is effectively a free but effective screencasting tool which allows you to record both your computer screen activities as well as your own voice.

During recording you can pause and restart the recording at any point. The final recording is immediately available after you press the Stop button, can be viewed right away or downloaded as an .flv file.

Works across Macs and PCs.

You don't need to have any previous account with StartMeeting to use this. Just sign-up and go.

My comment: Very easy to use. Effective, reliable out of the box. Good extra bonus the ability to download the recording.

Free to use.

Free Windows Screencasting Tool: ActivePresenter (Win)

Free Windows Screencasting Tool: ActivePresenter (Win) | Moodle and Web 2.0 |

Robin Good: For Windows PC users ActivePresenter may prove to be an interesting alternative, with lots of useful features at a price that can't be beaten.


And when you want more options, like extra export formats, or the ability to produce PowerPoint presentation as final output, the Standard and Pro editions come to the rescue.


With ActivePresenter, not only you can record your computer screen along with your own audio narration, but you can also capture screenshots automatically with mouse clicks or key presses and 

automatically generate appropriate annotations for each action.


Even the free version has no watermarks or time limitations.


Other features include:

- Attractive callouts

- Annotations for explaining each action
- Changing mouse cursor path
- Remove/change unneeded parts
- Add more video overlays
- Sync audio, video and overlays
- Closed Captioning

- Make it interactive by adding application simulations, branching scenarios, and quizzes
- Easily publish to the web, desktops, mobile devices, and leading SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems
- Track and report key metrics to evaluate learner performance

Supported output formats: AVI, MP4, WMV or WebM (supported by Youtube)


Three editions available:

- Free Edition: Can create video (AVI, MP4, WMV, WebM)
- Standard Edition: as Free + output in Flash Video (FLV), Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe PDF and HTML output
- Pro Edition: as Standard + the capability to create interactive AJAX, Adobe Flash simulations and Microsoft PowerPoint presentations.

N.B.: The Free Edition has almost all the features as in the Standard or Professional Edition, except the export capability.
