I'd forgotten that all this time Techsmith's screencast-hosting service, Screencast.com, has been a beta product. I just received the following email indicating that they're going official with version 1.0:
Say hello to Screencast.com 1.0!
Our hosting service is all grown up. And we're making it official by moving Screencast.com out of beta and into version 1.0. This means you get a totally redesigned, easy-to-use interface without losing any of your favorite features:
|Total Ownership |
Don't give up the rights to your intellectual property just because it lives on our servers. Anything you upload to Screencast.com still belongs to you.
|Original Quality |
No compression means that what you upload is exactly what your audience sees.
|So many ways to share...so many format options. |
Email your content, embed it in a blog, or give it a URL and link to it from anywhere you want.
|Decide who views your content. |
With public, private, hidden and authenticated options, you can share what you want and keep the rest just for yourself.
Thank you for your continued support of Screencast.com. Many of these user interface improvements have been the result of your feedback. Let us know what else we can do to make Screencast.com work the best for you. We have a "send feedback" option right in Screencast.com, so please, use it!
Unfortunately this still isn't a free product, even for educators - pricing information can be found here. Oh, and they're now orange-themed instead of green. :-) Just popped in and the response of the servers seems quicker than before, but that could just be my imagination...
