Camtasia Studio
http://www.camtasia.com/
Camtasia Studio - is the premier video screen recording program that records, edits and shares videos of any action on your Windows desktop.
"Camtasia Studio is a phenomenal tool for both new and experienced users. I created 20 math videos one night in about two hours to help my students study for a test, and then I used MenuMaker to put them on a CD. It took me far longer to burn the CDs for 85 students than it did to make the videos. And boy did my students and their parents like them! I've gotten more positive feedback from creating them than just about anything else I've done in several years."

Digital Video (uk newspaper article)
http://education.guardian.co.uk/digitalvideo/
New to the curriculum - Digital video technology will make film-makers of us all, while schools all over the country (uk) are embracing it as a new educational tool, writes John Davitt.
Just how effective an education tool is the new technology? Fifty schools participated in a nationwide (uk) pilot scheme and the findings have just been published.
One reason why digital video suits primary schools so well is the in-built flexibility of the timetable. Jack Kenny looks at three projects.
In secondary schools, DV is being used effectively to teach a range of curriculum subjects, from media studies to citizenship.
DV can help special needs pupils to discover their creativity and raise their self-esteem.
School-focused training courses in digital video are a still a rarity. Jerome Monahan attended one to find out how teachers can introduce DV into the curriculum.
Make your own digital video - A step-by-step guide in pictures.
A good motivator - DV has been shown to be a motivator of specials needs students, disaffected youngsters and even young offenders. But what other applications might it have?
