Screencastify is an excellent tool for quickly creating screencast videos. What you might not know is that you can also use Screencastify’s free video editor to edit videos that you’ve recorded with other tools. For example, I recorded a video on my phone then transferred it to my laptop where I used Screencastify’s free video editor to blur things in my video.
In this short video I demonstrate how to use Screencastify’s free video editor to blur faces and objects in your videos.
Applications for Education
Blurring faces and objects in videos is a great way to protect students’ privacy when sharing video clips online. By using the tools to selectively blur faces you can include the faces of the students who want to be seen in shared videos and blur the faces of those who don’t want to appear in shared videos.
