How can I record a narrated presentation?

How can I record my computer screen to create a video lecture?


We recommend faculty use Screencast-o-Matic to record their screen.  This online tool is free for up to 15 minutes of screen recording, or is very affordable to purchase the full version.  Screencast-o-Matic allows both Mac and PC users to easily record their desktop, audio, and web cam (if desired).

Another option for Mac users is QuickTime, which is a program that can automatically be found on Mac computers.
