What is Screencasting?

Before learning what is Microsoft Stream, we need to know what is Screencasting. It is a video recording of your computer screen and usually includes audio. Screencasting is also referred to as video screen capture and is a great way to provide training, teach or share ideas and instructions.

Harmony will be using Microsoft Stream which is an Enterprise Video service where educators in our organization can screencast, upload, view, and share videos securely. Users can share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, or tutorials.
