Add a tool for screencast and flipped learning

Flipped learning is a great way to use itslearning in education. But it lacks some kind of tool for making screencast, more than using a webcam. A screencast tool would be great to use for:

  • Flipped learning
  • Formative assesment
  • Instructions
  • Possibilty to share and rate recordings for assignments

    Admin Response

    Hi,

    Thanks for the idea and all the votes. Screencasts can absolutely be a good pedagogical tool! There are however, technical obstacles that makes it hard to fit such tools in a LMS. Mette Marie touched upon one of them; the file size. For now, you will have to use 3th party tools and upload the files to itslearning, or link to files outside the platform. If you come across a screencast tool with LTI support you can ask your local admin to make it available in itslearning.

    Since you mentioned flipped classroom I would just like to mention that we are working on implementing a new sound/video recorder based on WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) which does not need Flash installed. We are also updating our existing online "Flash-based" media recorder to work better with devices that support Flash. This means more support on more devices for recording sound and video, and a great tool for flipped classroom. Please follow our roadmap for the latest release estimates (we update the roadmap approx. once a month):

    Besides... it takes forever to upload the MP4 files to each student when you correct essays with screencast-O-Matic... If I could make the recording in It's Learning it would save me a lot of time

    FlipGrid is a great option for this. The Grids can be embedded in the rich text editor. We have some teachers using this function very effectively.
