You can use Zoom solely as a recording tool without enabling online participation. You have two options:
1. Using the Zoom Portal or Zoom App
Initiate a meeting in Zoom, choose to "Record the meeting automatically in the cloud" to record your voice and/or webcam and/or computer screen.
Once the video has been recorded and processed, trim the zoom recording if you'd like to take out extraneous content at the beginning or end. When ready, you'll be able to share the recording.
If you are faculty you can post it in Canvas by going to Recordings in Zoom to download the file then in Canvas create an assignment and on the right-hand side of the screen choose "Files" and "upload" to load the recording to Canvas.
2. Using Zoom in Canvas
If you are faculty in Canvas initiate a zoom meeting, record it, and the students in your course will automatically be able to find the recordings without you having to post them.
If you are using a mac computer, the QuickTime application is highly recommended for screen and presentation capture. The Quicktime application comes installed automatically with mac computers.
Quciktime will record videos to a .mov format by default, but can also be converted to a .mp4 file using Quicktime.
Camtasia is software many use to do screen capture with narration to create instructional videos. CSB/SJU has a limited number of licenses of Camtasia. Contact the contact the Help Desk (320-363-2228, [email protected]), or use the IT Services Self-Service Support Portal, if you'd like it installed and they can tell you if there are licenses left.
Microsoft Stream is a secure video hosting service as part of our CSB/SJU Office 365 license. CSB/SJU students, staff and faculty can upload, view, and share videos using their CSB/SJU network accounts. A new feature available in Stream is a record screen feature. Screen recordings are limited to a 15 minute max. Once the video is finished, users will be able to share a URL link, email other CSB/SJU users, or get embedding code which could be used to add the video to Canvas.
If you have a PC you can record your screen and audio within PowerPoint. This is one way to provide asynchronous lecture capture.
Another option for screen and presentation recording is Screencast-O-Matic. This software is available for download online and has a free version that can be used. Please note the free version adds a watermark to the finished video.
Snagit is screen capture software available online for download. Snagit is currently a one-time purchase, but offers a free trial. Snagit's website also offers tutorials.
