You don’t need to buy fancy equipment. Most smartphone cameras can capture Video in HD, and you can record audio Phone or external microphone
A good microphone is the most important piece of equipment you will choose. There are lot of affordable options. Make sure It’s correctly plugged in and 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) from you.
Clean up your background and arrange Props. Almost any small space can be transformed with a backdrop made of Colored paper or an ironed bed sheet.
Turn off overhead lights. Experiment with three point lighting by placing two lamps In front of you and one behind aimed on the background.
Turn off fans or air vents, and record at time when it’s quiet. Place acoustic foam or blankets on the walls, and bring in rugs or furniture to dampen echo
Students won’t see behind the scenes. No one will know if you’re surrounded by pillows for soundproofing…unless you tell other instructions in the community!
Film and export in HD to create videos of at least 720p or 1080p if possible. Audio should come out of both the left and right channels and be synced to your video. Audio should be free of echo and background noise so as not to be distracting to students.
Check often for any changes such as new noises. Be aware of your own energy levels - filming can tire you out and that translates to the screen.
You can edit out long pauses, mistakes and ups or ahs. Film a few extra activities or images that you can add in later to cover those cuts.
Students want to know who’s teaching them. Even for a course that is mostly screencasts, film yourself for your introduction. Or go the extra mile and film yourself introducing each section!
Clap when you start each take to easily locate the audio spike during editing. Use our guides to manage your recording day efficiently.
Make eye contact with the camera and speak clearly. Do as many retakes as you need to get it right.
Move unrelated files and folders off your desktop and open any tabs in advance. Make on-screen text at least 24pt and use zooming to highlight.
