Brief Description
CamStudio is a tool to digitally record a narrated video of your computer screen, called a screencast. The most obvious application of a screencast is to show someone how to perform a computer-based task. Since CamStudio can be used to record virtually anything displayed on the screen, in also represents a relatively simple way to create videos for a variety of purposes (e.g. vodcasts). It is important to consider that screencasts are not limited to expert-to-novice communication; they are often a very useful means for a novice to communicate to an expert (e.g. explaining a problem the novice is experiencing).
