I will soon be attending a web course.

Is there any application that can record the video and audio being outputted to my screen?

My goal is to record the class so I can watch it later.

Windows platforms preferred.

FRAPS works pretty well, and also can capture your desktop (if you enable it to work with DWM). – Breakthrough Dec 19 '11 at 10:38

Camtasia is a great software for this, it is not free but there is a 30 day trial.

Camstudio is not as polished, but an open source, and free software to use.

I tried Camstudio, I do not think it allows you to record audio. – CT. Jun 24 '10 at 13:26
@CT It does. Go into Options and check Record Audio from microphone or speakers depending on what you wish to capture. – Joe Taylor Mar 20 '11 at 9:08
I have used and also recommend Camtasia. Very mature and full featured product. – myopic.bones Jul 27 '11 at 3:56

For long session recording, you could use Camstudio with H.264 or Xvid codec.

You could try

(not used yet, but looks powerful, multi-platform, and is free)
