My school is using Screencastify. I have watched the videos here on Simple K12, but I am finding that it takes FOREVER to download my homemade videos. I have even kept them to less than 5 minutes. It has been taking hours for one to download. Has anyone else had difficulty with this?

I did not have any trouble with the download, however, some of my teacher friends did. I am not sure what the problem is. It probably is not worth hours of download for less than five minutes of video.

A lot of it has to do with bandwidth. If you're on a good, strong internet connection, it shouldn't take long, but if you're on a network with a lot of users (cell, some school networks, etc), it will take longer. I'm not familiar with this app, but I know that I had similar issues with others. A trick I found useful (but doesn't work for all apps) is to condense the video, if it's an option. It won't be the highest quality, necessarily, but it shaves a lot of time uploading. Good luck!

I agree with you. For this reason, I have stopped using Screencastify.

Thank you for explaining about the Internet connection. I think that is the issue with my Screencastify not working. We usually have poor Internet connection where I live. I really appreciate your words of wisdom.

It has to do with the bandwidth and other crazy tech stuff:-). Sometimes not worth it for a short video in my opinion.
