Chromebook Screen Recording
SnagIt App and Extension
TechSmith SnagIt is a Chrome app which requires the companion TechSmith SnagIt Extension. The free SnagIt app allow for screen captures and annotation from the Chrome screen. An experimental screencasting option can be turned on in the app. Because it does not use Java or Flash, it works on Chromebooks as well as on computers using the Chrome browser. Videos can be saved to Google Drive as .AVI files or uploaded to your Youtube channel. Note: Google Drive cannot natively playback .AVI formatted files - so the video must be downloaded to be played. I'd recommend uploading the screencast to YouTube. The app and extension combo still has some bugs, e.g. if you are screen recording and you have two monitors, it automatically captures both monitor - and there is no way to select the part of the screen you want to record. And it caused Chrome to crash once while using it.
Screencastify is a Chrome extension. Screencastify creates screencasts from the Chrome screen and includes audio. Because it does not use Java or Flash, it works on the Chromebook. Videos can be saved to Google Drive in .wavm format (playback with VLC player) or uploaded to your Youtube channel. There are options to record with your webcam image in the bottom-right corner. You can configure the frame per second from 1 to 25.
Skiblz Cam is a Chrome extension. It allows a user to create a screencast of the screen in the Chrome browser. The down side - the current version does not record audio.
