Screencast

3 Stripes

A screencast is a recording of what is happening on your computer screen.  With the free version of Screencastify, you are able to take up to 50 videos per month, each up to 10 minutes in length.  You also have the ability to draw or annotate what is happening.  They will have the Screencastify watermark on them. Videos automatically save to your Google Drive, where students can quickly submit into Google Classroom, SeeSaw, Moodle, etc.  Teachers can even upload their videos to Youtube and add closed captions or share with people that way.  Watch the following video for a quick introduction.

Alternatively, you can create a screen recording directly from your iPhonen or iPad by following these step by step instructions.
