A screencast is a video recording of what is displayed on your screen, often including a voiceover.

Screencasts allow you to present information to your audience in a way that can be more engaging and explanatory than simply sharing a PowerPoint presentation with slide notes for example.

Most screencasting tools give you the option of including a webcam video and some offer the ability to build in quizzes to further engage the audience.
