A screencast is basically a recording of the interactions you see on a computer screen. For example, you might create a software tutorial by recording menu selections and button clicks on your laptop as you narrate the process. You may want to critique a piece of art by displaying it onscreen and commenting as you zoom and point at sections of the painting. Screencasting is a simple process that has many educational applications, some of which I discuss in this chapter.
