Screencasting Resources

Screencasting icon of computer screen

Screencasting makes it possible for teachers and students to create video presentations of slideshows, websites, documents and other items with voice-over narration, including the option of embedding one's webcam in the video.

Screencasts can be embedded or linked in Canvas or Google Classroom, making it easy for students to see and hear lessons. 

Professional learning about creating screencasts is available through the online course Getting Started with Screencasting, which is available for sign up in GROW.
