I'm hoping to create some videos for my exam classes next year on exam technique with a step by step guide on how to plan, etc. I'm hoping to do this by capturing screen time as I annotate an exam paper. I've seen similar approaches on YouTube but no idea which software is best to use. The ones I've already tried either have a short time limit or don't include audio. Or, they're too expensive! Any advice please folks?

 

PS Hoping to trial a "How to" video on presenting work neatly for all classes. I'm sick of telling them to underline titles! If it works I'll share the YouTube link here and hopefully it will be of some use to others.

Hi - there are lots of tools out there and a number are available at no cost. Try https://www.techsmith.com/jing.html, http://www.screencast-o-matic.com and (probably my favourite free one) https://www.screenr.com

As you've already identified the free ones often have a short time limit but I'd suggest building up a series of short videos as they will be far more accessible to students anyway.

Also though, if you find the free ones too limiting, why not get your school to invest in some software for you? Camtasia is very popular and they offer educational pricing too http://shop.techsmit...goryID.67158100

Also worth trying the app "Explain Everything". It lets you open documents in the app then you can talk through them and upload directly to youtube.


stock your mind, it's your own house of treasures and nobody else in the world can interfere with it

Yes - Explain Everything is a great app. Even better in the hands of students. Maybe they could script and create their own exam evaluation advice and guidance?

Lots of potential with tools like this.

Fantastic, thanks colleagues! We have very limited computer access at our school but I'll find a way!
