ScreenPal is an easy-to-use video and screen recording web application that enables faculty and staff to capture what is being displayed on their computer screen along with audio. The tool comes with full editing functionality. Once created, videos can easily be accessed by students via a shared link.
Through Fitchburg State, ScreenPal is only available to faculty and staff for recording, not students. As long as videos are shared properly, students can access videos faculty have created.
