There are a plethora of ways that you can capture and share a lecture or your screen. Which tool fits for you depends on your hardware, your goals, and your audience. I am going to cover some of the lecture capture and screen capture tools available and supported by the Academic Technology team here at Endicott.
Camtasia – This software allows you to capture what is on your screen, then using powerful editing software, create rich movies.
Screencast-O-Matic – This is a free and easy-to-use screen recording tool. It is web-based and lets you record up to 15 minutes for free. Recordings can be saved to YouTube or saved to your local machine and then uploaded to YuJa. For more info click here.
Screencastify – This is a free extension that you can add to the Google Chrome Browser. It allows you to record your screen, with annotations. This can then be saved into Google Drive and shared from there. To add this extension, click here.
PowerPoint/Keynote – You can record a PowerPoint/Keynote presentation. This file can be exported out either as a PowerPoint show or a movie recording which can then be shared with students.
