Screencast-O-Matic is the free and easy way to create a video recording of your screen (aka screencast) and upload it for free hosting all from your browser with no install! You may export the video clip in QuickTime as a .mov file. It is also available as a URL that you may link to, and also send in an email.
Test your mic, pick a screen size and even leave notes if you pause the capture. You can back up and redo a capture that hasn't been encoded yet. Viewable in many browsers.

Create a photo album and add voice comments to the images. Easily capture voices that narrate a field trip that is documented with images. Add the finished scrapbook to a blog or web site. Easy and free. Great for young children still learning to write.
