Screen Casting!

After searching for a good software to use to film my lectures, I have finally settled on screen-cast-o-matic. Its a free software (you can upgrade to the Pro for $12 a year). It is exactly what I was looking for it allows up to 15 minutes of time per screen cast for the free version, and its very easy to use. You sign up, click "record" and a box opens on your computer screen. From there anything you open within the box shows up on the screen cast. I wanted to try a sample screen cast and I have a parent blog for my classroom so I decided to make an explanatory video about how our flipped history class would work. This is only my first foray, I'm going to need more practice
before putting my actual lectures up.
