Robin Good's insight:
QuickCast is a free and open-source (Mac only for now) app which allows you to easily record your computer screen activities, alongside with your voice into a standard video file that can be published and shared online.
How to use it: "Once installed, it's easy to record your 3 minute micro masterpiece. Simply select the QuickCast logo in your toolbar and then click record. You'll get a 5 second count-in and then it's showtime. Keep an eye on the QuickCast icon, it will indicate how much time you have left."
Quikcast allows you to record full screen or to select a dedicated region, and to add the recording of your webcam as well.
Free to use.

1. Nested Clips: Merge multiple elements into a single (nested) clip whose content can be accessed and edited on a separate tabbed timeline.

Robin Good: Sketchcasting is a new feature inside Sketchpad.cc that allows anyone to record a screencast of a code-writing session.
If you are programmer, developers, student or teacher, you may have found already the need to show and explain to someone else how you have coded something and what kind of results or problems this can cause.
The Sketchcast feature allows you to record both your code-writing session as well as your own voice, so that you can explain what you are doing with the code.
"Your viewers can then experiment with your code at any point in recording playback. Learn why this is interesting: http://twosigma.org/2012/08/20/khan-academy-computer-science/"
1) Anyone can record a sketchcast. Open the normal code editor, press “record”, and talk as you code. You’ll get a unique URL to share with others.
2) Sketchcasting is collaborative. Groups of people can code together while recording a sketchcast, and groups of people can code together while experimenting with forked versions of existing sketchcasts.
3) All viewer comments and Q&A are automatically time-coded. While I’ve argued for and hand-built time-anchored Q&A learning tools in the past, I got it here for free as a part of the excellent Soundcloud audio player.
