Getting them out there ... 


Using the web - Recommendations - YouTube or Screencast.com 


YouTube: Sign up for a free channel. Snagit or Camtasia have a Share to YouTube option. YouTube makes it easy to add translatable, closed captioning to videos.


Screencast.com (TechSmith):  Free for 2GB of space and 2GB of bandwidth each month. For more space & bandwidth upgrade to a Pro account. Snagit or Camtasia have a Share to YouTube option. Screencast.com will track the usage of your mathcasts & screencasts, allow commenting, sharing privately, and more.  For mathcasts that need to be accessed at school I recommend Screencast.com unless YouTube is unblocked.


Others: Vimeo (free or $), TeacherTube (free), or TeacherWeb ($).

Hosting Whiteboard Movies on your school or school district's server is a possibility but ask for a fair amount of space because if you or your students make 10 hours (600 minutes) of movies you'll likely need something like 600 x 300 KB = 180 MB to 600 x 500 KB = 300 MB of storage space. If your school or school district is "into" electronic portfolios for students then use that to help get your students "living" work on the school's server.


DropBox and Google Drive can also be used but they don't offer easy embedding.


For access without the internet try CDs, DVDs or USB drives:


USB drives: Pretty inexpensive but easy to lose so add a label to them.



Use Camtasia Studio's CD menu feature to create an autorun CD set of files in just a few minutes.


Using DVDs:


1. Use a DVD like a CD as above using the CD menu feature of Camtasia Studio.

2. Create a DVD playable on a TV or portable DVD player.  A great tool to learn how to do this the best way is Bill Myer's video "Camtasia to DVD" ($39 + shipping).


Using Portable Devices:

See TechSmith's excellent article "Creating Portable Media Using Camtasia Studio" (1 MB pdf)
