Screaming Hooray for Screenr
Demonstrating something for an audience is a powerful thing. Part of the value is in the “demonstration” and part of the value is in the “audience”. One of the main reasons I am screaming cheers for Screenr (www.screenr.com) is that it combines these two elements from one incredibly simple tool.
Using screenr.com you can capture (screencast) actions/sound on your computer and easily publish or share (via short url, twitter, youtube) them for an audience. One of the reasons it is simple is because there is no software to download, it is a web-based recorder.
Creating “how-to” videos has never been simpler! Students can also use Screenr.com to create a screencast to demonstrate learning.
Recently I created a series of 7 short videos for our faculty on “How to Use Rubicon Atlas” at our school… I easily published them from Screenr.com to my Youtube channel. Then, I embedded all 7 videos into a Google Presentation… Click the image to view:
What ways could Screenr.com be used in the classroom?
