Make sure to check that there isn’t a limit on recording duration, otherwise you risk capturing only the first half (or less) of your lecture!
If you're not the speaker:
Get set up before the speaker arrives. Then, all you need to do is make sure that both the camera and screen capture software are both recording when the lecture begins. And of course, that they both get switched off when everything is finished!
If you are the speaker:
If you can, find a student volunteer to help make sure the recording runs smoothly – especially when starting out. If you don’t have a volunteer just remember to make sure your camera and screen capture software are recording before you begin your presentation, and to stop both at the end.
5. Editing and finishing
Once you've recorded both components of your captured lecture it's time to edit them together into the final video.
If you're new to video editing there’s a few apps and resources we recommend.
If you're using a Mac
Apple's iMovie is a great place to start – it's powerful, easy to use and free with every Mac. Using QuickTime to record your screen + iMovie for editing your final video is a great free solution for lecture capture on a Mac.
