FilmoraScrn is a paid screencasting tool that can be downloaded for Mac and Windows. Teachers can record themselves talking during a lesson, similar to Khan Academy, and have students watch the video before they come to class. You can annotate videos with text boxes, shapes, and arrows, though sometimes those tools can be finicky. While you can upload your own media, there's no developer-created library like you'll find with Camtasia. Students can demonstrate learning and practice speaking skills in any subject. If you want to try something more creative, FilmoraScrn seems well suited to students who like to record themselves playing a video game. As they play, have students make observations and discuss the learning that's involved with their favorite games. 

There are online courses on the Video Editing Academy page to help beginners and experts alike. As with all screencasting and video creation tools, make sure students know about the sharing options and when it's appropriate to share publicly. It's also a good idea to help students understand the consequences of sharing personally identifiable information online.
