Teacher Created Videos
Record Yourself, Record your Screen, Save & Share Your Video
Step 1 - RECORD YOURSELF
Recording TEAMS Meetings
In an abundance of caution, we do not recommend using this option to record live interactions with students. The automatic recording will show any incoming video, profile pictures and/or names. Videos of students should not be posted to public sites or anywhere outside of the actual classroom Canvas course or Team. For this reason, we recommend recording lessons without the students and posting it for the class to watch during a live class or anytime later - perfect for students who cannot attend at that time or for those that just need to watch it again.
Step 2 - RECORD YOUR SCREEN
Step 3 - SAVE & SHARE YOUR RECORDING
Teachers must be extra cautious when recording meetings with students. We recommend using one of these simple options to record your lesson before (or even after) your live sessions with students. If recordings are made with student names, profile pictures, or live images, they must not be posted for others.
Good to know...
- Practice - It's a good idea to do a practice run before creating any video, but especially when you are actually on camera.
- Eye Contact - Eye contact with your audience is crucial when presenting. It makes your words more memorable and improves how well they retain the information you are presenting. Also, smiling and appearing happy during your presentation will improve student engagement.
- Lighting - Make sure that the primary light source in your space comes from behind your camera. This will ensure that your video will be well lit and well defined instead of blurry or whitewashed.
- Sound - Your laptop/phone/tablet has a built-in microphone that will record sound and will work for your video. The downside to using a built-in microphone is that it is not close to the speaker, and can sometimes be lower quality. If you can get your hands on a "lavalier"(body) microphone, or any other microphone that gets closer to the speaker, your sound quality will be much improved.
