Last week, I ran a presentation in which I recorded my screen in order to show you the new Facebook Timelines. This brought a lot of questions, namely: how did you do that?
Below are four great (and free!) tools that you can use to record your screen and make a presentation:
1. Screenr: Screenr is what I actually used for the presentation. It's greatness is in its simplicity - barely any clicks and you can be recording a presentation. A couple more and you can upload a presentation to YouTube or share it on Facebook/Twitter.
2. Webinar software: Using a webinar client like GoToMeeting or WebEx can allow you to show your screen and present it, live, to a group of people who are attending your presentation. Whereas Screenr is great for its simplicity, this software is ideal for its complexity--you can use pointers, highlighters, etc. to really focus on whatever you choose. The one downside: you have to pay, and sometimes the price can be expensive.
3. Skype: Skype can be used to share your screen, to one person, for free. To show your screen to more than one person, however, requires payment.
4. Livestream: Like Skype, you can use Livestream to show your screen to whoever is attending your presentation. The difference here is that you can show the screen to a group of people.
