How to work with screencasting tools

www.teachertrainingvideos.com uses Camtasia for making the training videos. I also use JING for making short videos. If you look at the menu on the left-hand side, you can see a complete list of the screencasting tools that I have worked with and made videos for. Here are a few of my favourites.
Camtasia 7-Two sets of videos
All the videos I have made on this site use Camtasia 7. It is a superb screencasting tool that allows you to edit, add title , add callouts and hotspots. Lots of potential for creating the sort of flipped classroom content. These videos will take you through using Camtasia version 7. Camtasia is not free but you can trial it for 30 days before you buy it.

SnagIt
SnagIt is not free but it is a very reasonably priced option for creating screencasts and it also allows for doing much more. It is very popular in the USA and is used for video capture as well as image capture. Watch these videos. It might help you to decide. There are two sets that go through the product in a lot of detail
