On the not-free-but-reasonably-priced side - TechSmith Relay includes embedded questions, analytics, unlimited uploads, and the ability for students to post their own videos.

For students in our Digital Education Leadership MEd we are committed to "living life in beta" so we are using Google Classroom as an LMS. This gives them hands-on experience with a tool they are likely to use as well as an opportunity to give feedback on a tool that is not quite ready for prime time. Here is a screencast I shared with them to help them understand both the instructor and student side of a collaborative assignment in Google Classroom.

Hi +Ritwa Smith,
I don't think the number of courses students take influences tech integration. I have some students taking up to 5 classes this semester and they are doing well in my tech integration course.

Good free screencasting option
 
It's Snagit for Chrome update day! We've received quite a bit of feedback that you guys would like to share videos via Google Drive (as opposed to YouTube), and so we've added Google Drive as a sharing option. The update should be live within the hour, so give it a try and let us know what you think!

Great resource to help teachers understand the power of hashtags
 
Know someone who needs to know a thing or two about hashtags?  Share this.
When I speak with educators about the power of hashtags in social media, I get four questions. 1. How do I figure out which hashtag to use and set it up? 2. How do I know what people are saying? 3. How do I know what hasht...

Here is a video on creating collaborative assignments in Google Classroom that I shared with my MEd students as I want them to understand both how to I created the assignment and how they will interact with it. Any feedback would be appreciated. I am learning a lot from this community.
