Screencast-O-Matic Help

Screencast-O-Matic no longer supported beyond Spring Quarter 2021

WWU's license for Screencast-O-Matic is set to expire at the end of Spring Quarter 2021. At that time, user licenses will revert to the free version. Students/viewers will only be able to play the first 15 minutes of videos (including via links and embedded videos in Canvas). Video creators will still be able to access and download existing videos for migration to another platform. As soon as possible, creators should plan to migrate Screencast-O-Matic videos to Panopto, WWU's new video management system or MS Stream. See "how-to" videos below.

Screencast-O-Matic users may opt to purchase their own paid license or continue to use Screencast-O-Matic’s free version for 15-minute recordings. 


For details on accessing and using Panopto, please see Panopto at Western.
