Screencasting

I have very visual and procedural learners: verbal instructions will not work; photo instructions are not working. And I'll be away for a few weeks. So I will have to train students to view videos for instructions. Screencasting is fabulous for providing step-by-step instructions, and I heard of a great alternative, but maybe I need to spend more time figuring it out.

First I checked my class website bible, Extreme Makeover: Classroom Website Edition by Brent Coley:
  • Youblisher looks promising: I can create a flippable book with your materials and the novelty might encourage students to LOOK at the pages

Then I decided to look for "free" "online" versions since so many free online tools are replacing desktop counterparts:
  • Screenr looks promising because it records video and audio at the same time in a seemingly easy interface
  • Screencast-o-matic also looks promising because of its simplicity
  • articles with recommendations
