Screencastify is a great way that students have been easily recording their screens for projects. They have created books or presentations and used this extension to record the screen as well as talk through the presentation. Then when they are finished it automatically can be saved locally to their computer or to Google Drive.
Here is how to set it up:
1.Click on the Screencastify link to add it to Chrome
3. When you click on it then you set up your audio and camera access (*be sure to allow the microphone and video if it asks)
4. Once you have allowed these then you are all set. You can click on the black symbol (screencastify) again. You should see a screen that looks like this:
You can easily change your preferences or just start/stop recording from this menu.
