what is screencasting
What is screencasting?
  • Capturing your voice and the screen of the computer to teach lessons
  • Use for:
    • Future student reference for tricky topics
    • Flipping your classroom
    • Enhancement of ideas presented in class
  • How do I use it?
    • For CS: students watch video to learn initial information; they post a response to the associated forum; some questions I answer on the forum; common questions I address in class; in-class completion and review of what I used to assign for homework
    • For math: tricky topics for future reference

Making your first screencast

A. Film your screen

1. Pull up Camtasia Studio

2. Choose “Record the Screen”

3. Pick a size for your selection (their default ratio of 3:4 looks good on

most phones, computers, iPads

4. Hit “rec” to record

5. Hit stop when you are done

B. Edit your recording

6. A window pops up - choose “Save and Edit” – give it a descriptive

name. Note that this only makes a *.camrec file. This is the raw

material you use to edit into a project. You then need to produce your

project to make a movie you can upload.

7. The editing window appears where you make your project

C. Make and upload your movie

8. Produce and Share

A quick demo


  • external media – a picture and an image
  • voice narration
  • call outs
  • transitions
  • zoom
  • If you say something wrong, pause for several seconds, start again. The several second pause makes it easy to edit out.
  • Use zoom ins to draw attention to part you want them to focus on.
  • I always make a simple file with my links and put in same folder as my mp4 files
  • If you are contemplating true flipping, hold the kids accountable by making them
    • Post to a forum
    • Complete notes you have pre-written
    • Answer a question on a Google spreadsheet
m ake them available to your students
Make them available to your students
  • is free if you purchase Camtasia Studio

benefit: fancier stuff with flash

drawback: can’t organize them very well – can’t have

folders within folders

  • Youtube: if you have a gmail account, you already have a

youtube account

benefit: very accessible on different platforms – phones,

iPads, computers

drawback: no flash (so no bookmarks)

  • On both of the above places, students have easy access to your other movies.
