Recording Tools: About Screencast-O-Matic

Recording Tools & Accessibility 

To facilitate a recorded video research consultation session, librarians use Screencast-O-Matic. This tool allows librarians to record and edit screen captures. Users are then provided with a friendly URL to their recording sent via email.

Screencast-O-Matic automatically produces captions generated from audio. Librarians have adopted accessibility for all and provide captioning with each recording. Captioning is displayed to the right of a recording, and users can follow the transcript with marked time stamps.

View Statistics for Recordings in Screencast-O-Matic

Screencast-O-Matic provides limited analytics on videos produced. Staff can log in to their online dashboards to see the total number of views for a video as shown below:
