A screencast is a video of what is occurring on a computer. Screencasts often contain audio narrations. Oftentimes, screencasts are used to create tutorials. Educators can use Screenr to demonstrate how to complete homework assignments and provide feedback on student assignments. Students can use a screen recorder tool to create tutorials as well. However, students have to be at least 13 years of age to use Screenr. Screenr is simple to use. Users:
- select the recording tool;
- decide which areas they prefer to record on their computer;
- select their microphone;
- start recording;
- pause the recording if necessary.
Screenr has a free version that enables users to record for five minutes. However, paid versions are available that empower users to record longer. The screencasts can be posted on your Screenr account page, Youtube, Facebook or Twitter. In addition, users can embed the screencasts on their websites and blogs. There are additional screencasting tools available. Therefore, if you are not content with Screenr, then research other tools. Get started today, and enhance your teaching style in a positive way.
