A previous post looked at the screencasting tool Jing. The people that developed Jing have also developed a tool called ‘Screencast‘. Screencast allows users to record, store and share any content from Jing such as videos, images and presentations.
Screencast.com has some new information about:
- how to upload media to screencast.com
- slowing down your mouse movements so viewers can follow screencasts more easily
- how to record better audio
- letting viewers download items you’ve uploaded to Jing
- adding and changing thumbnails
- how to control who you share your screencasts with
Screencast is free, although there are premium offerings that can cost US$99 pa. The free account includes 2GB storage and 2GB bandwidth per month. Screencasting is a great way to teach others how to use a particular computer resource or Web 2.0 tool.
