ViewedIt - Screen, Voice and Webcam Recorder for Practitioners who use Google Chrome and/or Chromebooks

ViewedIt - Screen, Voice and Webcam Recorder for Practitioners who use Google Chrome and/or Chromebooks | technologies | Scoop.it
Video for All
John Dalziel's insight:
ViewedIt is a free Chrome extension that makes it quick and easy to create and share screencast videos. 
ViewedIt could be a good screencasting tool for teachers who use Chromebooks and want to share tutorial videos with their learners. 
Being able to track when learners watch their videos is an added bonus. 
With the extension installed users can record their entire screen or just one window tab. 
ViewedIt will let users record themselves with their webcam as well. 
To record on ViewedIt users simply have to... 
  - click the extension icon  
  - choose what they want to record. 
...when they're done recording (max time of 1 hour per video), their video is automatically stored on ViewedIt. 
From ViewedIt users can share their video via email and social media. 
If they choose to share via email, they will be able to track who watched their video and the percentage of the video they watched. 
There is no limit to the number of videos users can record. 
NOTE : To be honest, ViewedIt has the following shortcomings... 
  - it doesn't let users download their videos and 
  - it doesn't let users upload their videos to YouTube or other platforms. 
Still worth a closer look, especially if practitioners are engaging with "Flipped Learning" and/or only have Chromebooks.

Clyp:- On-line Voice Recorder

Clyp is a free online voice recorder where you can record and upload audio. No account required.
John Dalziel's insight:
My audio at https://clyp.it/200xewgx probably says it all, apart from the fact that Clyp is also available for Android and iOS devices. 
I understand that using those devices is actually the best way to record audio on Clyp. 
NOTE: - There is an upload limit of 100mb per a single upload which is the equivalent of an hour if you are uploading an mp3 file. 
Also, Clyp supports different audio file types including mp3, ogg, m4a, wav, aiff, aif and 3gpp. 
I don't think I need to list the many ways Clyp can be used by learners and/or practitioners.
