For online lessons students should have Scratch
on their laptops. There are online
versions of Scratch.
To run Scratch 2.0, you need to be using (1) a Windows, ChromeOS, Mac, or Linux computer; (2) a version of Adobe Flash Player
released on or after June 15, 2016; (3) a relatively recent web browser: one of the latest two versions of Chrome (Windows, ChromeOS, Mac or Linux), Firefox (Windows or Mac only), Safari (Mac only), Edge (Windows only), or Internet Explorer 11 (Windows only). If your computer doesn't meet these requirements, you can try downloading and installing Scratch 1.4
, which you can still use to share projects to the Scratch 2.0 website.
Can I record a video of my Scratch project?
Yes, you can record a video of your Scratch project up to 60 seconds. In the Scratch editor, from the File menu, select "Record Project Video." (You need to be signed in to see this option.) You can choose additional recording options (such as recording sound and mouse clicks) through the "More Options" menu. Then, run your project however you'd like. Once the recording is done, follow the instructions to download the file to your computer. Depending on what kind of computer you have, you may need to download another program like the VLC Media Player
to play the file. This file will run on YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook, but may need to be converted for other websites like Twitter or Tumblr.
