What is it?

Screencasting is when you record or stream a view of your computer screen. It can be conducted from a number of platforms depending on the software used. Generally your voice is recording along with the recording of activity on the desktop, and there is also usually the option to record video. The result is usually a video file that you can upload to a video hosting service.
