What is a Desktop Recording?

A desktop recording occurs when you create a video of all of the computer screen (including webcams) and audio activity on your computer. Desktop recording can also be used to produce Voice-over-PowerPoint (VOP) online lectures.

Why would I use Desktop Recording?

Desktop recordings can be used to create video tutorials for your classes, an introduction to your course, a mini lecture on a specific topic using a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover or demonstrations of how to use a software program. Desktop recordings may be a component of your flipped classroom where the didactic lectures are moved online (using a desktop recording) with the class time spent on student centred learning activities.

Desktop recordings may also be used as an alternative to Lecture Theatre Recording when your teaching space is not fitted with equipment to record lectures.
