Presenting your content using a video can involve creating a simple screencast of a powerpoint, adding audio in the form of music, automated or real speech, with or without a talking head, through to a recording of a lecture in a recording room or out on location. You might use a video camera, or simply a smartphone or tablet. The finished product might reside on your institution’s server or on a private or public YouTube channel. Here are some useful programs and platforms that can be used.
Screencast-O-Matic – ridiculously easy to use online tool for screencasting or webcam recording. Small watermark, up to 15 minutes of recording time, then upload to YouTube or download an MP4.
