Last summer I started using a new, free screen capture tool called Monosnap. At that time Monosnap was only available for Mac users. Monosnap is now available for Windows, iOS, and Chrome.
To get started using Monosnap download the version that is appropriate for your device. Once installed you can use Monosnap to capture a portion or all of your screen. Like other screen capture tools you can write on your captured images, draw arrows, and obscure parts of the image. One neat option in Monosnap is capturing your screen after a ten second delay. The delayed capture option gives you time to get everything into place for the image. That’s particularly handy when you’re trying to capture a pop-up box or drop-down menu that otherwise would disappear when you click away from it. You can save your screen captures on your computer or upload them to a free Monosnap account.
Applications for Education
Monosnap, like other screen capture tools, could be used for creating directions on how to use a new program or application. The option to obscure parts of an image is useful if you want to hide contact information that was accidentally captured in your screen capture.
