Why you want to create screencasts

What are screencasts and why would you want to create them?

Screencasting tools for teachers, free and non-free

So how do you create screencasts? This post will show you the tools to use. I did get a mention on Twitter about Screencastify, which allows you to create screencasts with Chrome and on Chromebooks. I don’t use Screencastify because Nimbus does a good job and is free for videos longer than 10 minutes. I’m sure Screencastify is a great app, and I don’t mind pay for apps (paid $99 for Screenflow) but I balk at subscription pricing.

Sharing your screencasts for students, staff or the public

Once you have your screencast, it’s pretty useless unless you share it.
