Get ready for video learning! 08/03/2015 Screencast-O-Matic is a new consortium supplied, web-based tool that allows instructors to create basic screencasts/video learning for online courses. I found Screencast-O-Matic to be a quick and easy program for general purposes. It is easy to use, and the videos it creates are a good quality for online courses. When users first visit the Screencast-O-Matic site, recording videos could not be easier. Instructors can easily record a video within five minutes of visiting the site’s homepage.
