Screencasting Tips and Tricks

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2019 | 12-1 PM | MUH MOS 316

Screencasting is the process of recording a video of your computer screen capturing everything and every action on the screen at a given time. The resulting video is called a screencast. Screencasts are often used to capture static objects like text, images, and files as well as more dynamic content such as audio, video, and even keystrokes and navigation. Screencasts are a powerful tool supporting teaching and learning and collaborative work. There are many screencasting tools available.
