EdTechTeam partner Screencast-O-Matic recently released an intuitive Android screen recorder app. The Android screen recorder adds to the company’s multi-device suite of video creation tools making it easy for teachers and students to create videos using Screencast-O-Matic on Windows, MacOS, ChromeOS, iOS and Android devices.
The new release means more opportunities for your students to get hands-on experience with video in the classroom and endless opportunities for students to express their creativity, as well as exercise student voice in the way they demonstrate their learning.
The new Android screen recorder allows students to record their mobile screen with options to add audio narration and Facecam. There are numerous ways students and teachers can use this app in the classroom and here are a few of our favorite ways:
- Create video tutorials – Students can create their own video tutorials and then share them easily.
- Showcase student portfolios – Have students record projects using editing tools such as speed and rotation.
- Quickly create recordings on the go – Publish video updates while outside of the classroom and use the crop tool to resize and share videos.
- Easily give meaningful feedback – Connect with students quickly and utilize options for communication, including overlaying Facecam comments on student recordings.
Once the app is installed, students can easily begin recording their mobile screens. Students have the ability to trim their videos, change the playback speed and rotation, crop for easy sharing on social sites, and overlay a Facecam. There is a Premier Plan option, which allows students and teachers to automatically transfer recordings and other imported videos to the Windows or Mac desktop video editor. This is a great option if students create a project on their phone and need to transfer for a presentation. Recordings can also be mixed with other content and edited to create engaging videos.
With the Android release, Screencast-O-Matic is fulfilling its mission to make video creation available to all students and teachers regardless of platform. The company has helped millions of users worldwide share and collaborate ideas and messages in education. Learn more about these features over on the Screencast-O-Matic blog.

I would love to use Screencast-o-matic to record my feedback on student papers submitted in Google Classroom. I don’t see a way to attach an individual file (a video in this case) to a students’ submitted work. Long way around, I uploaded and shared with a link that I embedded at the top of the students’ papers. I would much rather attach.
