How-To Record a Video on Your Computer

Desktop recording is a self-sufficient way to produce lecture videos. This guide will explain how to record a video on your computer.

Assuming you have already written your video script, created any necessary visual aids, and chosen a screencasting software application, you are ready to make your video. Go to a quiet space and check your audio configuration. If using a webcam, make sure that your image quality is sufficient for viewers to see you clearly. Record a short sample to confirm that everything sounds and looks as intended. Depending on which desktop recording software you are using, visit the accompanying guides for detailed instruction on how to record.

If working with SPS Distance Learning staff to edit your video, view the guide on how to edit collaboratively. When finished, share your video.
