Auto Screencast teaching tool.

I just came across this in my twitter stream (c/o @geekami ) and it's marketed as a 'help you friends and family' type app. The software sends a url via email to the person you're looking to help, they follow the link and from this new page they record a screen cast. The software then automates the upload and sends you an email to say that the movie is ready to be viewed.

I'm thinking this is a really quick and simple solution for the remote student, and as the movies are easily downloaded, a quick return movie showing the correct method or solution to the student's original problem, could be auto embedded into a FAQ section removing the need to do it again.
