Here are some sites to create great screencasts. As always wiki away and add your favorite sites.
Screencast-O-Matic is the original online screen recorder for one-click recording from your browser on Windows, Mac, or Linux with no install for FREE! This one is personal favorite and the one that I use. It is very easy step by step with the ability to add text wherever you want and a recording time of up to 15 min.
Very similar to Screen-Cast o Matic, also allows for picture screen cast. Of course that is basically the same as using the "print screen" key on your ketboard. A matter of trying several of these and deciding which one you like best.
Very similar to Screen-Cast o Matic, another web based recorder that is free. A matter of trying several of these and deciding which one you like best.
Another Web-based recoder-nothing to download. Plays everywhere on the web, even iPhones. Like the others it is free, just a matter of which you like best.
