Create screencasts online. Java-based. Still in beta, but a great tool. Resolution much higher than what I’ve been able to achieve with SnapzPro on my Mac. And yes, it’s cross-platform! So far, you can’t embed, though you can download as Quicktime, upload to Google Video or YouTube, etc, and embed from there, I guess–which might cause the same fuzzy resolution I’ve been fighting with SnapzPro all along. iShowU, by the way, is a new Mac screencast software–about USD $20–that is far superior to SnapzPro, if you want to buy software for your Mac.
Screencast-o-matic seems eager to add features and improve its service, so it’s definitely something to watch. Thanks to Jeff Utecht and Chris Craft for the tip.
Web-based screencast application. It’s in beta, and the quality isn’t as high as it might be with more mature, professional applications, but it’s free and quick. – post by christyinsdesign

This site is offering a free service that allows you to create movies of your screen sessions including audio if you wish. It’s currently only a very early beta and the quality is limited but the fact that it requires no special software is a real plus. I – post by bigfellow

People across the globe are recognizing more and more the importance of protecting the environment. At the same time, students and teachers are using technology more and more in teaching and learning. While the use of technology creates some additional demand on the environment through manufacturing and power usage, it also provides powerful tools to learn about how to protect the environment.
Write an essay of 1000 words or less describing a program for how students and teachers can use technology to protect the environment. Include how you think the program could affect your school and community.
Who Can Apply?
Students from 5th grade and up are eligible to apply. There are two categories: middle school (5th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade). Only three (3) students from each school may apply. An institution that contains students in both categories is eligible to submit applications for three in each category.

Along with the essay, applicants must submit the application in this file. The completed application can either be emailed to email@example.com with the subject “Green Light Contest” or mailed to PC Mall Gov, Inc., Attn: Green Light Contest, 2555 W. 190th Street, Torrance, CA 90504.
