Screen Capturing Software

  • Screencast-o-matic (student accounts can record for 20min) or for about $2 a month get a ton more features
  • QuickTime Player (as a camera recorder- Mac)
    • I use this with the internal camera on the Macbook, and use it to record my ‘floating head’ self. This can also be done in Monosnap (below) for PC users.
  • Monosnap
    • Its free(mium), Mac, PC, Chrome installable, and my go-to screen recording tool. It can also do picture-in-picture all within the app (won’t green screen), and allows you to do annotations on static screen shots you might need for PDF documents in your class.
