It’s been a week of screen casting, and here’s a wrap up of the week.
What are screencasts and why would you want to create them?
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.
Once you have your screencast, it’s pretty useless unless you share it.
