Screencasting: Introduction

Simply put, screen-casting is the act of recording the activity on a computer screen. Any action a user makes on their screen can be recorded as a video. These recordings, called screen-casts, can be seen all over the Web as parts of tutorials, advertisements, movies, training videos, and the like. Screencasts, which often contain voice-over narration, are useful for demonstrating how to use specific operating systems, software applications or website features.
