Podcastle is a new podcasting tool that would work great in schools!
LICEcap is an intuitive but flexible application that can capture an area of your desktop and save it directly to .GIF (for Windows and now OSX), which is designed to be lightweight and function with high performance.
Podcastle records high-quality
audio, interviews, & allows you to edit audio in your browser. Users can conduct remote interviews, edit and enhance - online, fast, easy and it's fun!
Get incredible sound quality, an unrivaled user experience, and professional results right after the lecture recording is finished. Don't use multiple software anymore.
If you have students that are absent consider creating a video each day to send to all your absent students letting them know what they missed in class that day.
I have students in an A/B block schedule so I make a video that's good for two days.
I BCC my absent students via email and I repeat myself all year about the need to check their email if they miss class for any reason.
