Screen Castle is a simple screencast creation tool that I learned about on Webware. To use Screen Castle simply visit their website, click the start button and you’re recording. You can have the option to use enable voice recording for your screencasts. I did not utilize voice recording in my sample screencast.
Applications for Education
Screen Castle is good for quickly creating video directions for using a website or desktop application. Creating screencasts is a good way to create a record of the instructions that you may have to frequently give to students or colleagues. For example, in the past I have created screencasts for my students about adding pages to wikis.
