Using Screenr to teach pronunciation

Screenr is a free screen recording tool, easy to use to support language teaching. The following are a few voice-over videos I had my students do in a pronunciation seminar.

To make voice-over videos, simply

  1. Go to Screenr
  2. Click the “record” button
  3. Resize the frame around a video on your computer
  4. Turn the sound of the video off
  5. Start recording

  7. To save or publish the video, you’ll need to sign up for an account.

Have fun with it!
