Ever think about making a quick introductory video to help get students hooked on a new topic at the beginning of a unit?
How about having students explain their reasoning by creating quick videos to help teach a concept to their peers?
Or maybe you just want to record a small part of a lesson.
Google Chrome (Internet browser) has many hidden add-ons you can install on your own; called Extensions.
