STEP 1: Creating Math Animated Image

During the summer I discovered an “Older” screencast program called LICEcap. It is compatible with both Windows and Mac Laptops. The program creates simple animated images. This program is very limited with its options but works well for creating quick demos without sound.

I like the simplicity and found by smashing this program with Google Slides amazing action can happen when creating animated gifs. This is the program I used to create the animated math equation in the Google Forms Math Support.

How to use LICEcap

  • First download from CNET:LICEcap
  • Followed by installing
  • I keep LICEcap in my task bar or toolbar for easy access
  • Click LICEcap
  •              Screen Shot 2016-08-28 at 4.03.33 PM
  • Position it on the screen
  • Name the File
  • Add a location to save the file
  • Click Record
  • Click Stop or the x when recording is completed

Now I bet you are wondering what to do next? Next you would go to a Whiteboard Online website such as Ziteboard or Web Whiteboard to use for writing the Math Equation. Open the whiteboard site followed by opening and positioning the LICEcap program to record. It’s really that SIMPLE.
