Articulate launched a screencasting tool called Screenr.  It is a free web-based tool that lets you create screencasts without installing any software.

If you haven’t tried it out yet, you should give it a whirl.  Here’s what I like best:

  • Screenr is super easy to use and there’s nothing to download. You just click the record button on the website and you’re recording your screen activity and your narration.
  • The image quality is pretty darn good.  You can even watch the screencasts back at HD-quality and they look great.
  • Screenr gives you multiple ways to use your screencasts.  It works with Twitter and the screencasts play as Flash on the web.  You can also upload the screencasts to YouTube.  And you can even download the videos as MP4 files.  They also look nice on iOS.  All these options give you a number of ways to reach your learners.
  • My favorite…there’s no branding on the downloaded MP4 files.  Since you can download the videos, you’re free to use them as you wish.  That means you can use it in your elearning courses without looking like one of those MLS soccer players.  Go Sounders!
  • And of course, Screenr is free.  Free is always good.
