Adding screencasts to your project

Screencasts are a very useful way to show an example of how to do anything on a computer. The screencast software captures everything that is happening on your computer screen, including the movement of your mouse cursor, and records it as a video.

Although Articulate suite doesn't have any screen capture capability, there is an application available online. This application, called Screenr, allows you to capture screencasts of up to 5 minutes and save them as videos. Those videos can then be downloaded and used in the various programs that are part of the Articulate suite.
