Screencasting


What is Screencasting?


Screencasting is when you record a video of your computer screen, oftentimes for teaching or sharing ideas. Think about your digital life. All that time sitting at your desk. Think of your apps, websites, instant messages, emails, and everything that makes up your digital world. What if you had a camera in your pocket, ready to capture and record in full, crisp HD at a moment’s notice? What types of videos would you create? Would you ever want to share what’s on your screen? How could it help you work better?

Common examples of screencasts are onscreen tutorials, video lessons, or slideshare presentations. A major benefit of screencasting is that the viewer can watch the screencast at a time when it’s best for them, because learning doesn’t always take place in an academic setting. Additionally, the viewer can absorb the information at their own pace by pausing and rewatching portions. Screencasts add a personal touch in ways that other methods (like PowerPoints and written notes!) simply cannot.
