Here’s another tool for capturing screencasts (I previously blogged about Jing): Screencast-O-Matic. Whereas the Jing Project provides free downloadable software, Screencast-O-Matic is web-based, and requires only that you have the most recent Java software available (it will prompt you if you do not).  When you finish, you can export your Screencast (download it to your computer) and/or share it directly from the Screencast website. Here’s one I created on the fly: Blue 2.0. To me, it doesn’t look quite as clear as the Jing captures and video … but it’s a very handy little tool. (I also have to admit that the name of it makes me think of the Bass-O-Matic – is that just me?)
