How to record yourself and screen using Zoom

You may wish to record yourself, perhaps talking to a PowerPoint presentation or similar, so you can provide this to students as a resource or for other purposes such as training guides.

This can be done easily using Zoom!

Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Sign into your Otago Zoom account
  2. Start a “New Meeting” 
  3. Check your microphone is capturing your voice well
  4. Share your screen (if you wish to share a PowerPoint or your desktop or any other document)
  5. Start recording when you are ready 
  6. Stop recording when you are done 
  7. Locate your recording to then upload to Echo360/Otago Capture or perhaps Mail Express to someone else, depending on your requirements.

Here is a video that walks you through this process:
