Screencasting is the process of capturing the screen interactions on your computer – usually along with an audio narrative. It’s been a very effective method for creating screen based tutorials on computer for a number of years. With the advent of screencasting apps on the iPad, screencasting has now become a great option for the creation of multimedia student presentations. It can be used for any number of student projects such as illustrating and explaining the solution to a problem in mathematics, creating tutorials for apps, commenting and annotating an essay, document or article, and more. Instead of simply requiring students to answer a question, the use of screencasting allows them to illustrate and verbalize their thoughts and explanations.
