Top 10 Sites/Apps for Creating Screencasts

Creating screencasts has been one of my favorite things to do when working w/ technology. I have used this as a tool for teachers or students to help them w/ troubleshooting or even professional development. Wikipedia states, "Educators are now using screencasts as another means of integrating technology into the curriculum. Students can record video and audio as they demonstrate the proper procedure to solve a problem on an interactive whiteboard."

Top 10 Sites/Applications for Creating Screencasts
  1. Screen Flow - Quite simply the best, most robust application for creating screencasts at an affordable price.
  2. SnapZpro - While not as many features of Screen Flow, more affordable and easy to use.
  3. Jing - One of the more popular free applications for recording screencasts (unpaid version saves as a swf file).
  4. Screenjelly - Probably the most user-friendly site to use for recording video and uploading to a number of sites.
  5. Camtasia - Great application for Windows that is similar to Screen Flow.
  6. Screenr - Excellent free site for recording screens w/ an iMovie type interface.
  7. ScreenCastle - One of the best and easiest ways to record a screen and share/embed w/ others.
  8. Sequence - Very affordable Mac application for creating screencasts w/ the ability to draw or comment.
  9. Screenium - A nice Mac application at a nice price w/ lots of features.
  10. Screen Flick - A Mac application w/ lots of export features.
