Creating online video is not as difficult as it sounds and if you are "green" to creating videos, this walk-through is going to give you some perspective. I am going to be walking you through what a screencast is, the software that is available out there (online and install based), and I am even going to be giving you a look at the software that I use (Screenflow) and how I create screencast videos like this one.

Here are some of the websites that were referenced within this training:

If you have any questions about Screencasts or want to discuss any of the "options" discussed within this video, please leave them below.

Kyle, thank you. You have given me the means to create a podcast (and the Mac resource I need) for my 'powerpoints on demand' called pods on my website. Want to keep things simple, easy and fast for everyone 'on the go' who want to build, as we do here, a learning program that will spear them into a field of study with specific goals. I believe I can beat the competition (at least I can dream I can). Seems like I have been working forever on keywords and media to add and link once a few foundation pods are done. Been meaning to ask for one on one help, is that possible?

Yeah, one on one help is available to you whenever you need it, just ask. I am here to help, so please do let me know if you have any questions going forward. You ARE the competition if you view yourself this way and you will become the competition. You have all the skills you need to put yourself into this position.

Thank you, Kyle, I will very soon. Has been a tense two days with having to send kids home to their families on Monday, as did I, and I just got back home.
Many of us here in OK saw up close what everyone owned destroyed by a tornado. Those of us who were to close for comfort, are so thankful, and gave everything we could to help the families in OKC and Moore on Tuesday. There is so much more help these families will need as we all move forward.
As soon as this week is done, will take a deep sigh and ask your direction.

What Microphone would you use (instead of the inbuilt mic) so that the voice appears crystal clear, and does not have too much noise from the background ?

You should get a USB plug mic for your PC, and for external recording you better use a voice recorder together with the video recording, also because some of the recordings could be a bit far away and your voice wouldn't be on record.
That gives you 2 recordings for Outdoor videos which have to be synced after in a software like VideoPad or Camtasia where you can adjust the audio and video files.

Although sometimes I just use the onboard Mic for my videos (if I am transient), you can absolutely get a good USB for fairly cheap through amazon or your local electronics store. Lots of options and lots of reviews out there.

Hi Trace
I use my Laptop camera and the one at my Tablet for outdoor recs.
You can get some great quality with fairly cheap recorders, I just don't have those cheap ones available in Brazil.

Hi Kyle. great tutorial.

Screencast-O-Matic all the way as you won't find anything better with editing functionalities for a bit over 1 dollar per month.

I got Screencast-O-Matic too, paid $15 for a whole year and it's brilliant, high quality and lots of editing like you said. Can't go wrong, newbie safe.

I don't recommend that newbies try the "free download" ones as they come with "other things" that can cause problems on your computer and can also be hard to get rid of. Robbie :)
