Screencasting with the Chromebook

This is nothing really fancy, and I'm sure it's already occurred to many of you. One of the things we've been searching for is a way to do a screencast from the Chromebook. Since you can't install Jing or Camtasia and most of the online screencasting tools such as Screenr require Java, we have been mostly out of luck.

Oh, how Google Plus changes things. More specifically, the Google on air hangout makes it possible. I did a quick test on my Chromebook and it's a little sluggish, but it definitely works.

This could really help our students and staff in a number of ways.
