Screencastify is a Chrome App to record that you can easily get by going to the following link and clicking on "Add To Chrome" 


Typically Screencastify Chrome Extension only gives you 5 minutes of recording time, however, they are granting all COVID19 impacted educators free access to their suite of products through at least April 30. This includes:

  1. Recorder. Unlimited access, no restrictions.
  2. Video Editor. Full access. Edit, merge, and polish all videos, not just Screencastify recordings.
  3. Submit (phased release). We have accelerated the development and launch of Submit, a new product specifically designed for distance learning. With Submit, teachers can easily collect recordings from their students, no extension required.

We will be monitoring the situation closely and will extend access beyond April 30 if necessary.

Steps for you to take:

To activate Screencastify Unlimited access, follow these instructions:

  • Visit this page and click "Redeem coupon" (under the Next Billing Date)
  • Enter code CAST_COVID
  • Click "Activate License" (no credit card required). Ignore the Next Billing Date - that will be incorrect

Here's a quick video that demonstrates these steps. 

We will monitor the situation closely and will extend access as needed.
