Beginner's Guide to Screencast-O-Matic: A Tech Tool

Friday, March 6, 2015
Screencast-O-Matic is an online screen recorder with one-click recording.
Teachers, students, and youtube uploaders are all using this software to make tutorials or step-by-step instructions.
The best part is it's free and SO easy to use!

Here's an example of how I used Screencast-O-Matic to add to our school counseling program.
Here is a tutorial on how to sign up for our state's virtual school.

Simply click "Start Recording" in the top right hand corner of the Screencast-O-Matic homepage
then click "Record Screencast."
You can choose to record a cropped version or your full screen,
and it will record your voice as you speak to what you are doing.
If you mess up, you can start completely over or just start over from a selected point.
My example only shows the screen, but it's also an option with a recording device to
record your own face speaking to the camera as well.

How do you/could you use Screencast-O-Matic in your school counseling program?

  1. The best case scenario for the bulls is that this count plays out. if this is the "worst" case scenario for the bears ... it's really not that bad ... if a top hasn't already been formed, we're close. night rats! may tomorrow bring you green shoots on whichever side of the fence you're on.
