If you are like me, when using the FLiP laptops with students, you have likely found students get excited about the use of technology, but do not necessarily pay attention to your entire set of instructions before jumping in to an activity. We all grow weary of answering the same questions repeatedly, yet if we don’t repeat ourselves, the lessons can quickly become chaotic. To remedy this, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/ to record your instructions for activities and assignments involving computers. The program captures your actions on the computer screen as well as verbal directions you create- and even better- it can be saved and posted to D2L for those students needing repeated directions. You can record directions on how to navigate D2L screens, how to create a work cited page, directions for saving work on the computer, etc.
