Screencast <ul><li>A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, also known as a video screen capture , often containing audio narration. </li></ul><ul><li>The term screencast dates from 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>Early products produced large files and had limited editing features. </li></ul><ul><li>More recent products support more compact file formats such as Adobe Flash and have more sophisticated editing features allowing changes in sequence, mouse movement, and audio. </li></ul><ul><li>Just as a screenshot is a picture of a user's screen, a screencast is essentially a movie of what a user sees on their monitor. </li></ul><ul><li>http:// en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Screencast </li></ul>

  5. 5. CamStudio - SWF <ul><li>SWF (acronym of “Shock Wave Flash” pronounced swif - is a multimedia file developed by Macromedia and now controlled by Adobe. </li></ul><ul><li>Intended to be small enough for publication on the web, SWF files can contain animations or applets of varying degrees of interactivity and function. </li></ul><ul><li>http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swf </li></ul>
  6. 6. CamStudio <ul><li>With CamStudio AVI demonstrations can be created in just a few steps. </li></ul><ul><li>Install it and just follow the instructions, it is very easy to use, no programming knowledge required. </li></ul><ul><li>All the recordings created with CamStudio can be played back with the CamStudio Player, Windows Media Player and many other third party tools that support AVI. </li></ul>
