If you are looking to implement a flipped classroom or just share a how-to video with your class, then screencasting is the first step. While there are many different paid / free apps out in the marketplace, Quicktime on the Mac provides users with a fuss free and no cost option for screencasting. Follow these quick steps to create your first screencast:
Step 1: Open Quicktime player by using the search function on your Macbook.
Step 2: Right click on the Quicktime Icon and select ‘New Screen Recording’.
Step 3: Click the arrow next to the record button. Select your microphone and make sure Mouse clicks is on. This will give a visual and audible click on the screencast.
Step 4: Press the record button and then drag a box to select the area you wish to record. Then select start screen recording.
