Video Production

Screencasting & Video Editing
with Screencast-o-matic

Screencast-o-matic offers free and paid accounts. Although the free version has a 15-min limit, there’s a lot you can do with 15 minutes of focused video presentation. Although the options in the free version of Screencast-O-Matic are great for quick and dirty screencasts, the Solo Deluxe subscription is well worth the $20/yr. price, and gives you many useful features that are not available in the free version. One subscription works across ALL devices. The Solo Deluxe subscription allows you to record on most mobile devices (including Chromebooks) and do advanced video editing on a PC/Mac. It also lets you save your videos directly to Google Drive, YouTube, Dropbox, and Vimeo. This is the version I will be teaching in Wednesday's class. You don't have to get a Screencastomatic subscription before the class. Make your decision after the class when you see what it can do.

WeVideo for Education

Compared to the features in WeVideo Free and WeVideo Premium subscriptions, WeVideo for Business and WeVideo for Education have the following benefits:

  • Private and secure “Walled Garden” - There is increased awareness in both private and public sectors about the sharing of content - concerns about safety, privacy, and appropriate content. In the Multi-User account, the default behavior is that users can share timelines only with other members. Administrators can further control the collaboration by restricting sharing to designated groups.

  • Easy collaboration - Users in a Multi-User account can easily invite other users to collaborate on video projects.

  • Flexible sharing of media files - In a Multi-User account, media files can be shared with members of a specific project, or with all members of the multi-user account through shared folders.

  • Central capacities - Video export time and media storage space is pooled for the entire multi-user account.
