Have you always wanted to capture screen video, but could not/were not permitted to download any software like Camtasia or CamStudio? Have no fear, you can go to http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/ to make your own screen capture videos.
Pretty neat, eh? I am using Screencast-o-matic to complete a screencast while I type this blog. Pretty easy. You receive some very basic choices along the bottom, a start recording, mic check, restart, and done. No quicker do you hit record, and you are on your way.
After you finish, you can save the video file, upload it to Screencast-o-matic, or upload it to YouTube. I uploaded my demo to YouTube. Then I can post it on a blog, send it to others by link, or do any other variety of things.
Definitely a pretty powerful thing for teachers and even students. A great way to quickly complete a quick tutorial if your students are working on any type of application. The best part, most of the features are free. You can go pro and receive some additional features, like turning off the watermark in the corner, using it offline, getting some additional editing tools, but really, for most people, this free version works well! The best thing–you can use it within pretty much all browsers (I am using Chrome) and across all OS (Linux, Mac, Windows–I am using W7 64 bit).
