In preparation for the upcoming 24 hour skypecast event “When Night Falls” for K12Online06 this weekend, I recorded two screencasts this evening for session moderators explaining how to record their skypecasts and convert the files to MP3 format. Both are linked from the tools page of the event wiki.
All the programs described in these screencasts are free except Call Recorder, but its demo is fully functional and just limited in how many days it can be used before it must be purchased for $12.95.
There are a lot of choices for free Windows-based programs that record Skype calls and Skypecasts, but the others I have tried all limited the amount of time you can record with the free version. Powergramo is not time-limited, so that is why I chose to use it. I am not aware of a free program on the Macintosh side for recording skypecasts. Call Recorder works very well for me, and I found its price to be quite reasonable. If anyone knows of free skypecast recording software for Macintosh please let me know, or of better free software on the Windows side than Powergramo.
