    Please suggest screencast software

    I would really like something that allows me to create quizzes. Three I know of:

    Adobe Presenter: I don't understand the pricing, but I think it's pretty high. Also, I know Adobe loves Flash, but mobile devices often do not.
    ActivePresenter: Seems to be poorly reviewed
    Camtasia: might work

    I also like Wink and XVidCap for the price (free) and because they work in Linux, but I think both projects have been abandoned since 2008.

    I could probably do without something that creates quizzes, if the price is right.

    Any suggestions?

    For screencast software, I've always used CamStudio. It's free, but it will probably take some tweaking to get things set up the way you want them.

    I'm not sure what you mean by creating quizzes. Screencasting software records what appears on your screen.

    If you want to create quizzes, you might want to look at audience response software.

    Yeah, you really need to say more about what you are trying to do, as no one would have suggested screencast software unless you had mentioned it yourself. Screencast software creates a video, which isn't really a quiz-like environment. We recently had a thread that used JavaScript and <canvas> for a nice, interactive quiz that allowed people to drag boxes into locations to complete the quiz.
