We can use various tools to create videocasts.

Screencastify is a Chrome addon that integrates with Google Docs.

Jing is a very useful free tool that allows you to create a narrated videocast of your desktop that you can post on the internet and share with others. You can save a file on your computer, upload it to Screencast.com or share it on YouTube.

Screencast-O-Matic is another videocasting application that works well. You can record your screen and your webcam and then upload it to YouTube.

Possibly the simplest service for recording webcasts is Google Hangouts

Online video is a very powerful educational tool with many creative possibilities for students and teachers. One creative use is to "create your own adventure" linking multiple YouTube videos and allowing viewers a choice of selections based on a decision. See for example The Journey into the Arctic created by Canadian Heritage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAB_cRMbxvI&feature=youtu.be
