First Time Set Up


Step 1 Install

Install the Screencastify extension in the Chrome browser

We recommend option 2, the Chrome web store.

Step 2 Sign In

Sign in with your Drew email address.

Note: If you don't see the extension, you might just have too many other extensions. Try using the keyboard shortcutAlt+Shift+S on Windows or Option+Shift+S on Mac - to open the extension and prompt the setup steps. 

You can also pin the extension by clicking the extension puzzle piece icon to expand the extensions menu, then making sure the pushpin icon for Screencastify is blue.

You will need to allow cookies for this site (some people have them blocked, either in Chrome settings and/or with an extension.)

Tip: If you want to follow the setup in Chrome using the Sign in With Google option, make sure you choose your Drew Google account

Step 3 Connect Google Drive

Connect your Google Drive.

This allows Screencastify to automatically save your recordings to your Drive - a safer place to store them than on your local computer.

Signing in with your Drew Google account takes care of this.

Step 4 Check webcam and mic

Check Screencastify's instructions for setting up your webcam and microphone.




You may need to click Next again.

Screencastify will ask you to introduce yourself. 

Now you're all set to use Screencastify!
