Examples of Use:
If you're a teacher, or work in education, then you've probably heard of the Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org/
). The Khan Academy is an organisation providing free world-class education to anyone anywhere, through the use of an extensive website video library, which currently stands at around 2,600 videos.
The videos cover anything from kindergarten spelling to finance and history, or science topics, such as biology, chemistry or physics. Each video is a digestible chunk of knowledge, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on the computer.
If you're interested in creating Khan Academy style videos and need a screen recorder to start the ball rolling, remember BB FlashBack Express is free to use and ideal for making simple screen recordings.
Recording a Prezi
Prezi is a cloud-based presentation tool, but some screen recorders are capable of recording fast-moving images to create packaged Prezi presentations (if you're not familiar with the Prezi presentation tool, check out http://prezi.com
Web conferences -- also called webinars or webcasts -- provide a way to present information in an interactive manner to a group of individuals. They are great for increasing business productivity, offering presentations to clients and business partners, holding online training, or for sharing computer applications all online.
Sales and Marketing
Screen recorders can be used to produce professional, self-contained video demonstrations of software, for sales and marketing purposes.
Pre-recorded video software demonstrations are a valuable resource. They can illustrate the capabilities of an application or website in a way that static words and screenshots cannot match.
A screen recorder is great for showing students software in action and how to perform complex tasks on a PC.
Teaching in school
Because a screen recorder can record exactly what is done on a computer screen, what a user says, and how they interact with any Windows-based application or website makes it an ideal tool for teaching. In a school or learning environment, screen recorders can be used:
• To demonstrate an application or service.
• To produce 'how-to' films (for example, how to use a specific feature in a computer program).
• To create narrated demonstrations -- this is particularly useful as software becomes more complex, allowing users, reviewers and developers to share their understanding.
• By teachers and trainers wanting to develop engaging tutorials
• By students needing to evidence coursework
• Home PC users who want to distribute on-screen content and record creation of computer art, photo and design projects
