Why Learn about Screen Videos?

Headset with microphone


A screen video records all sound and motion on your computer screen in order to save it to video and share with others. Screen videos are powerful tools for displaying your presentation to an online audience. They are becoming especially popular in MOOCs, or Massive Open Online Courses. There are many ways to record a screen video to make a lecture or presentation. Some easy options include Microsoft PowerPoint, SnapzPro, and other screencast software and hardware that allows you to record and upload to courseware sites.  Each tab in this guide provides more in-depth information on creating screen videos using these tools.
