I use screencast-o-matic too. I'm new to screencasting. When I started researched screencasting, I came across the "o-matic" and thought, hmm... that's got to be easy. It is and I like that it's web based.
Ok, there's a lots of great software to produce flash tutorials (in .swf format).
But my problem is: where can I upload it for free and share it whith my students (whith the option to embed in my blog...) ?
Does anyone help me?
I only know Screencast.com (from Jingproject), but there's a lot of limitations in bandwith...
I'm seeking something like Youtube but for flash files... (and with private onptions).
Am I asking too much?
I also like Camtasia. I find it very easy to use and worth the money! You can see the masterycasts I have made for my students in the subjects section of www.masterymaze.com. See US and Ancient World history...Love it!!
TipCam is a free screencasting tool for Windows found at http://www.utipu.com/app/download. It's easy to use, and you can host your content at uTIPu.com. Full Disclosure: I work at uTIPu, and we are currently investigating how to better serve educators.
There are a lot of screen recorders for you to choose. The free one most popular people use is Camstudio. Or you can try Jing Project. If you don't mind using the trial version, DemoCreator could be a good one.
