I have been working with some of you across the district in making videos. Some of you have done projects that involve students making a Book Review video, All about Me Video or a Science Report Video that combines Google Slides with ScreenCastify. Others, mostly at OHS, have used Screencastify or Doceri to make instructional videos for you students. Both great uses of screencasting.
I want to let you know of other options here so that you can try them out and see what works best for you and your students. All of these can be used on Chromebooks and each has some additional features that you will have to check out.
CaptureCast– unlimited video length, can be uploaded to YouTube, easy setup
SnagIt– unlimited video length, can be saved to Google Drive or YouTube
Nimbus Screenshot – video can be saved to hard drive and then loaded to Google Drive or YouTube
Screencastify – 10 minute limit, video can be saved to YouTube or Google Drive
Let me know what you think. If you’ve tried some of these other tools, share your experiences.
Remember that you also have your recording options on your Mimio or your Smartboard.
