I couldn't make up the name if I tried. If you go to the website for Screencast-o-Matic, you will learn (for free) how to capture a sequence of computer screen shots as a little video. This can be really handy when teaching legal research class (or any other class where you might otherwise want to walk the students through various Internet steps). You can show the students how the steps will look on-line, because they'll see exactly what you saw on-line as you went through the steps when preparing for class. No more worries about whether there will be delay in a link opening or a glitch in your Internet service at the exact moment you need things to run smoothly in class. And you can then make your step-by-step screen captures available to students after class, so they can review it as many times as they need to until they remember and understand the research steps.
