To see is to believe — screencasting

One of the most useful tools in teaching computer literacy are screen capture software. These software allow you to record your screen and is valuable if you want other people to see what you see in your own computer.

Medhacks recommends two tools for this purpose: Wink ( and Camtasia (free version) at Of the two, Wink has the advantage of cross-platform capability (Windows and Linux) while Camtasia works only in Windows.

If you have presentation slides that you deliver to different sets of students, save yourself the trouble and record them with Wink or Camtasia. Let them watch the lecture ahead of time and focus face-to-face encounters for interactive discussions.

Here are some movies I’ve made with Wink.
