Fuse allows you to record video and upload it to the B-W course capture solution (only on the BW network right now). You can also upload video from your video library (included edited videos!). ScreenChomp is a writing tool that allows you to record your own "whiteboard" and is hosted off site. Both are FREE!  Search for "Fuse for Camtasia" or "ScreenChomp" in the App Store.
