Technology: Increasingly, teachers want to create videos to share content, narrate PowerPoints, demo software, or create a weekly screencast about upcoming classroom activities. Screencast-O-Matic offers an easy, free way to record your screen or webcam and post the video without downloading a software program or investing hours to learn a new product. Once the recording is complete, users can save it to their computer or upload to YouTube.
Evidence: As an IT Consultant, Mary Beth works with a range of faculty across different disciplines. When Susan was teaching an online course for the first time several years ago, Mary Beth showed her Screencast-O-Matic as a tool for creating video. She liked it so much, she shared it with her colleagues, who also appreciated the quality and ease-of-use. In course evaluations, Susan's students state that the videos are extremely helpful in understanding course material and make the online experience feel more personal. Rather than detailed written explanations, Susan finds that Screencast-O-Matic is an easy and efficient way to reach students. 
Broader Impacts: While there are variety of resources for incorporating video in a classroom, when faculty create their own screencasts, they can cater the content to their students’ specific needs. Self-made videos can also personalize content in an online environment.

I use Screencast-O-Matic with my online classes. Students find the videos very helpful and I find the program very user-friendly.
