Create Screencasts on Chromebooks As I’ve written many times over the years, Screencast-o-Matic is my favorite tool for creating screencast videos on Mac and Windows computers. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work on Chromebooks. In the past my go-to recommendation for screencasting on Chromebooks was SnagIt for Chrome. That’s still a good option, but this week I found a Chromebook-compatible screencast tool that I like just a little bit better. Screen Capture Software for Windows, Mac, and Chrome Context is everything. Recording a video lets the person on the other end actually hear your voice.

You can record your video, and share it within seconds.
