2020-03-10 21:31

Screencast-O-Matic is a tool that allows you to record your screen and save the file to your computer to upload it to Google Drive or Schoology (or YouTube, etc.)

Screencast-O-Matic is perfect for creating a pre-recorded lecture or presentation.

  • Go to and log in with your Carthage email address and password.
  • If this is your first time, you must register. Follow the instructions on the screen and agree to the terms to create an account.
  • Click on the "Download Install" tab. Click on the software .exe or .dmg package to begin the Setup Wizard.

  • The Setup Wizard will walk you through the installation.
  • Click "Install for anyone using this computer." 

  • Choose whether you'd like to "Start Screencast-O-Matic" and if you'd like to "Create Desktop Shortcut." Click "Finish."

  • During the installation, the software may ask what kind of plan you are on. Choose "Team Plan." If you are asked for the access URL, type in "carthagecollege."
  • You should now be able to launch the program from your computer to record, edit, and save a video file.
  • If you are uploading a file to Google Drive, Drive will spend some time processing the video. Then you will have to share it with the end users (typically anyone with the link can view).
  • If uploading the file to Schoology, the file must be under 500MB. Go to "Add Materials" > "Add File" > "Upload." Schoology will need a few minutes to process the video.
