Math + screencast = Mathcast

Students in my trigonometry class used Camtasia Studio to create mathcasts of their work.

The first is a movie we uploaded to YouTube. The second is a set of 6 movies we produced with a table of contents using Camtasia and uploaded to our course Moodle. After students created and uploaded their mathcasts, their next task was to present their movie to their parent(s) during a student-led homework conference. Parents viewed the mathcast and completed this evaluation form. Feedback I received from parents was overwhelmingly positive. 🙂

There are plenty of free screen recording tools out there such as Jing or Screenr to name a few. If you haven’t yet created screencasts with your students, I urge you to try it!
