Thinking about recording education videos? Find the process and application that works best for you.

Make your video

1. Record Content

A screen capture software, such as Loom, Screencast-O-matic and FlipGrid, is a quick way to create tutorials, skill, discussion, and explanatory videos right from your desktop or browser. You do not have to download any software and can be creating in minutes.

This is the best option for quick, short instructional videos.

2. Edit Content

Download Camtasia from AppsAnywhere for a simple and powerful edit (and screen capture) tool.

This is the best option for a recording that requires editing and more advanced features.

You can always edit your screen capture videos here too.

3. Share Content

 Because of large file sizes, one of the best ways to share your content is to use a video sharing platform. Upload your video and share the link on your site or social media. 

4. Embed Content

For the best-looking presentations, you can add your video content right in Blackboard, Teams, or your website or blog.

Video Recording Checklist

  • Have a good quality microphone and a quiet space to record.
  • Don’t worry about perfection. Over editing can create frustration and add time.
  • Keep it short and sweet. Avoid simply recording lectures. Synthesize and assess learning.
  • Make it accessible. Add captions to all of your videos. Contact Anne Villahermosa for more information.
