Screencastify – Chrome Add On

Looking for an easy to use video screencast WEB2oOL that is built right into your Chrome web browser?  Screencastify is your 2oOL (make sure you open this link in Chrome)!   Once you add this to Chrome, just click the “film strip” icon in the upper right hand corner to open the menu shown below.  If you choose Desktop, you will be recording everything that is view-able on your desktop.  Notice, you can add your “face”/webcam video to the screencast.  When you are done recording, you will get the option to copy the link (if you are saving to Google Drive and not locally).  This is the link you will use to share with others.  It is open to anyone with a link, so BV students will be able to see BV teacher videos, and vice-versa.  With the FREE (Lite) version, you get up to 10 minutes per video and up to 50 recordings per month.
