Today, I am going to discuss the value of using screen capture in your digital classroom. In my post Synchromous Vendor Market, I used a screen capture application to document my experience with Blackboard Collaborate. I like Screencastify for a view reasons; Screencastify is free, easy to use and easy to share through two different types of media. Screencastify can be shared either through a link or on Youtube. If there was a downfall for Screencastify, it would be the video is only produced in webm and not mp4. There are many converters online that will allow you to convert from a webm to a mp4. Screen Capture does allow for modification to teaching methods by allowing teachers to teach a class just like you would in a classroom with a smart-board. The only draw back is allowing for students to ask questions and receive immediate feedback. Please follow my link to view a short lesson on Screencastify.
