Video on Demand

If you have need to make a short video to demonstrate a concept, show a screen capture of filling in a spreadsheet, or just letting your students see your beautiful face, there is a quick and easy (and free) way to capture video right from your desktop. It’s called Screencast-o-matic. The easy to follow instructions on the website will get you recording audio, video, and your desktop in a video format you can drop into UBLearns or YouTube. It records 15 minutes for free, or longer if you upgrade for $15/ year. If you have any questions or problems, just let me know – Jim.
