Will a video made by a cellphone camera that is 2MP be acceptable instead of a screen cast ? And can someone recommend me some more screen cast softwares that records in .mov format and is free beside camtasia?
The requirements for submission of the final project are very flexible. I interpret the instructions to mean that any short video that can be uploaded to YouTube "(or, if blocked in your country, a similar site)" is acceptable.
I used Icecream Apps Screen Recorder for my final project (last year). I found it to be all the things they say it is in the marketing material, and (my favorite feature) free!
