Narrated PowerPoints allow you to present your lecture in a more personalized way by featuring your voice in each slide. Here are some brief tutorials to help you get started:
YouTube is a simple and efficient tool that you can use to record a video-only lecture. The built-in annotation features allow you to add text-based notes as a layer on top of the video for additional reinforcement of key ideas. YouTube even includes an automatic transcript feature that’s pretty accurate.
Panopto is a dynamic video recording tool that captures your video, PowerPoint and Desktop Screen all at once and wraps them into a single viewer for your students. The platform allows students to easily jump around within the presentation using the Power Point slides as an index. Your students can even take notes within the viewer as they watch the video!
If you would like to have your lecture recorded for you by one of our Student Media Technologists, please fill out the Faculty Lecture Recording Request Form. The recorded video can be made available to you via YouTube, Panopto, digital file (.wmv, .mov, .mp4) or DVD.
*Please note that this service is for only for classroom lectures only. All requests must be made two weeks in advance and are subject to availability.
The IT Help Desk has flip cams, video cameras and digital audio recorders that you can check out. If you would like to reserve equipment, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the following form: Equipment Loan Form.
YouTube currently offers automatic captions for videos that are uploaded to a user’s channel. While the captions are not perfect (and you’ll probably have to edit the transcript to a degree), it can provide you with a rough version.
