Recording Your Computer Screen

A lot of the time the learning content and other materials shared on Canvas will tend to be to be slides or documents. What if you want to create something more media rich involving video or audio? One approach is to create a screencast, essentially a digital video of what’s on your computer screen which can also include audio. Screencasts can take the form of a slide show with voice narration, a demonstration of how to use a piece of software on your computer, a website tour or a video lesson. Screencasts are created using screencasting software. Once created and edited they can be uploaded to Canvas just like any other content for students to view.
