What is Screencasting?

screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture, often containing audio narration. The term screencast compares with the related term screenshot; whereas screenshot is a picture of a computer screen, a screencast is essentially a movie of the changes over time that a user sees on a computer screen, enhanced with audio narration.  -Wikipedia
There are many uses for screen-casting, and this series of articles focuses on educational applications. Recording a screen-cast is easy -- it's the technique that must be developed. 
  • Using the Flipped model of teaching, students can view screencasts for homework and then work on problem solving during class.
  • Clone Flip- Teacher records lecture and students watch it in class while teacher conferences individually with students.
  • Screencasts can provide learners a student-centered and engaging learning experience 
  • To align screencasts with lesson objectives, goals, assessment practices, and standards, instructors can create their own screencasts rather than searching through the thousands of educational screencast videos on the web.
  • Good educational screencasts depend not only on thorough planning but also on thoughtful and careful editing to re-sequence lesson elements, eliminate awkward and unnecessary portions, and craft a focused, easy-to-follow presentation that uses students' time efficiently.
