Creation of videos can be done with screen capture software. The following packages have been used by video producers:

  • Screenflick (on a Mac) -- Adam Field
  • Screencast-o-matic (on Windows 10) -- Lizz Jennings (note: there's a microphone "enhancement" feature on Windows 10 that will make you sound like Darth Vader. You need to disable this in the Windows 10 sound settings for the screencast to work).
