Screencast-O-Matic

I have a job where I have to send out tutorial videos for educational technology all the time. I do a lot of teacher training in staff meetings, but sometimes those 5 minutes just aren't enough to show the steps on using a tool or all that it can do.

This got me out looking for something that I could use in my room to record myself and my screen sharing more about the tools that I teach about. Cue Screencast-O-Matic. This FREE tool lets you record your screen for up to 15 minutes. I love to use it while I talk through a new tool with my teachers. It also highlights your cursor so they can easily follow along with what you are doing. All of my videos that I publish on my blog about tech tools are all recorded using this tool. 

Now there is also a paid level ($15/yr) on Screencast-O-Matic, but I have found the free version to work just fine for my needs. Here's a break down of the differences off their website. 



If you use it, let me know what you think!
