A brief guide to ScreenR.com – the web based screencasting tool

ScreenR is a web based screencasting tool that makes it very easy to create and share screencasts

You must have an account to record and publish a screencast but you can sign into an account through Facebook, Twitter, Google, Windows Live or LinkedIn. Alternatively you can just create a “ScreenR” account

This video gives you a very quick overview of screenR

with a more comprehensive walk through available in the video at the bottom of this post

The good points

  • It’s free
  • it’s easy to use

  • you are limited to five minutes
