The Kazam screencasting app (the one I use for my screencasts) has received a pretty substantial update, bringing it to version 1.0. Changes with Kazam 1.0 include: - Ability to record certain screen regions - Support for two audio channels, with volume settings - Output can be saved in WebM or Matroska - Uses gstreamer instead of ffmpeg - Countdown timer is now customizable, from 1-65 seconds - Countdown window has now variable width - Adjustable framerate, from 1-60 fps - Ability to turn off recording mouse cursor
Software for creating screencasts have become essential and the products available are being used intensively for creating thousands of new videos every day. So lets agree that being able to create screencasts is a must. If you have not already found your favorite tools this post will help you make the choice.
Are you considering the implementation of the flipped classroom? The process of flipping the classroom involves a paradigm shift in what constitutes class work and homework. When a classroom is flipped the students receive direct instruction at home typically through the use of multimedia. When students return to class the next day they are able to apply what they have learned by working on questions, problems, or tasks that would typically be assigned for homework. There are a number of instructional benefits to this process. You can read an earlier blog posting I have written on the topic here or take a look at my wiki page on the topic. My observations have been very positive. I would like to share some of the tools that are available to create multimedia files that can be used to provide direct instruction online.
Show people how your product works instead of telling them about it using these five free tools. Showing people what a product does is a better way to catch their attention than telling them about it. Car salesmen encourage test drives, ice cream stores give out free samples, and I’d be willing to bet that few people purchase a Hanger Cascader without watching the infomercial first.
Applications and methods for creating and delivering digital course materials, so you can experiment with flipping the classroom. Over the last 6 months, I’ve researched and written a number of articles about Reverse Instruction. I’ve also lectured on the subject and am looking forward to presenting at The College of Westchester later this month, and at Campus Technology 2012 this summer. (For a primer on Reverse Instruction and how teachers are using it, check out the post, “7 Stories From Educators About Teaching In The Flipped Classroom”).

Have you ever heard of screencasting? It is the process of capturing desktop activities to showcase a procedure, to teach or demonstrate a service or to create video tutorials and broadcast it for playback by other users. You don’t need to have expensive equipment to create your own videos. In this post, we are sharing our top 10 picks on free screencasting tools to get you started.
Have you ever wondered how video tutorials are made ? You might be wrong and think it needs advanced technology knowledge to do them. It is in fact way easier than you have ever thought. The tools below will enable you to make your screencast and broadcast it to the world to see it. Screencasting is all about sharing your screen with others, not in real time ,of course, but in a short or long recorded videos.
I have benefited a lot from following people on Twitter. Recently I spotted a twit by Robin Good on using Movenote and present.me to produce a quick and simple screencasting. I followed the link to his Scoop.it! page. I watched his sample presentation and I thought, ah...I can try this! Both Movenote and present.me are free, very easy to use and the quality is reasonably good (but judge for yourself). Both programs have limited features compared to the more established Screen-O-Matic but I guess it's quite sufficient. I would add these to my selection of free screencasting program to present my PowerPoint or Keynote.
