Create Whiteboard Recordings on the Updated eduClipper iPad App

Screen Shot 2014-03-13 at 9.21.48 PMCross-posted from the blog, Free Technology for Teachers. The popular digital portfolio and bookmarking service eduClipper has released an updated iPad app that offers four awesome new features. The most notable of these features is whiteboard recording. This new feature allows you to create explanatory videos in a Khan Academy style or to narrate and annotate an item from your eduClipper library. Complementing the whiteboard recording feature is a new option to download your eduClips to your iPad or to Airdrop them to a computer. Screen Shot 2014-03-13 at 9.20.11 PM The other new eduClipper iPad app features are updated annotation tools and a new notification center. The annotation tools now include options for changing the thickness of your lines, new line and font colors, and new font style choices. The new notification center resembles that of Google+ in that you’re able to go back and view all notifications on each of your eduClips.

Create Screencast on Chromebook

March 17, 2014 · No Comments


From Free Tech For Teachers

With ScreenCastify installed in Chrome you can record everything happening in a tab in your browser. Voiceovers are supported and a pointer is included by default. Completed recordings can be saved to your computer or uploaded directly to YouTube. There are a few things to note about ScreenCastify before you get too excited about it. First, your Chromebook and or Chrome browser must be up to date (that shouldn't be a problem in most cases) as Chrome version 32 or higher is required. Second, while recording the desktop is an option it is an experimental option and may not work as you hope it will. Third, your microphone is turned off by default so you will have to grant ScreenCastify access to your computer in order to record a voiceover.

TechSmith recently launched a new beta version of Snagit for Chrome that supports creating screencasts that you can save into your Google Drive account. To use the new screencasting option in Snagit for Chrome you will have enable the "beta" version of both the Snagit for Chrome extension and Chrome app.  The Snagit Chrome extension is what allows you to capture your screen. The Snagit Chrome app allows you to save your screen captures in your Google Drive account. You do have to install both the extension and the app for Snagit to work correctly. The video below provides directions on how to enable the beta mode of Snagit for Chrome. The video also shows you how the screencasting works.

This is good for a student when he has to go back to find a website for a bibliography.
