Snagit Screen Capture

I love Snagit by TechSmith! Check out my blog post from the other day about how to use Snagit to make animated GIF’s. You can easily drag these animations into Google Docs, Slides, etc… It’s one of my essential tools for creating resource documents and for providing feedback. See below for some helpful tips!

Teachers Are Professionals

I am partnering with PledgeCents to try to tackle the problem of teachers paying out of pocket for supplies and EdTech. We would genuinely like to help find you funding to reduce or eliminate your out of pocket costs for your classroom. Teachers, please fill out the Google Form below. We will be randomly choosing teachers to receive a copy of Snagit or other products.

Snagit Tips

  • Enable the Capture window and the One click tab.
    This has a red button that hides on the side of your computer screen. When I hover over towards that spot it pops out to quickly allow me to do a screenshot or screen recording.
    One click tab
  • Save Feedback to Drive
    If you are going to view student work, why not screen record it?! It’s super simple to record your screen allowing you to talk through your review of student work. Click on the Share button in Snagit and choose “Google Drive.” This will save your video to Drive and automatically copy the link to the clipboard. I have my TechSmith folder in drive set to “Anyone can view” so any screenshots or recordings I save to Drive are visible to those I share the link with.

  • Blur
    Blurring out kids names or your email address in screenshots is important.

  • Use Key Stamps
    Snagit allows you to add stamps to your screenshots. The stamps I use most often are that of keyboard keys. I can just drag from the stamps panel right onto my canvas. I usually use Control N to get a blank canvas to add my stamps to.
