Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Understanding | Teaching Science and Math | Quality Through-ICT | Scoop.it

Flipping a classroom is not a teaching technique, it is more in line with a philosophy or way of teaching. It involves using technology as a tool, not the main focus, for helping students increase their understanding of science or math concepts.

Free Screencast Recorder: Microsoft Expression Encoder | Digital Inspiration

Free Screencast Recorder: Microsoft Expression Encoder | Digital Inspiration | Quality Through-ICT | Scoop.it

With Microsoft Expression Encoder 4, you can record a movie of your desktop screen of any size and simultaneously capture the webcam video and audio narration from a microphone.

 

Alternatively, you may capture the screen activity without the audio and add a voiceover later at the time of producing the video using the “Audio Overlay” feature.

 

Expression Encoder has been around for a while but with one limitation – the free version would only let you screen capture 10-minute video clips and if you were to record clip of longer duration, you had to switch to Expression Encoder Pro.

 

Well the good news is that Microsoft has recently released a new version – Expression Encoder SP2 – that contains bug fixes and stability enhancements and they’ve also dropped the time limitation.
