Pandemics have supported technological advancement in odd ways, similar to how the medieval ages evolved into civilizations. Previously, instructors and educators utilized chalk and a board to teach, but now they use lecture capture technologies. Almost every school and institution now have lecture capture equipment, allowing educators to just walk in, press the record button, and start speaking.

Outside of the classroom, lectures and other online course content are routinely videotaped. To record online course content outside of the classroom, most teachers only need lecture capture software and a laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone, or a mobile device. This is one of the most effective ways to record lectures in class.

The most effective methods for recording lectures for students are -

  1. Plan

You can get the most out of your learners by planning your lecture content and creating slides ahead of time. Structure your presentation content to help your audience remember it better, and minimize information on your slides by removing anything that repeats what you're saying in your lecture โ€“ use your slides to highlight, not repeat, your most important points. Students will be more likely to pay attention and observe your lesson through to the end.

2. Download your video capturing applications

With the rise of online classes, video capture apps for iOS and Android have also risen in popularity. Keep an eye out for a future article on the best apps for filming videos for online classes.

3. Record a test video

Once you're ready to film a test video, you'll be able to try and ensure that the sound, lighting, and overall video quality are satisfactory.

4. Enhance the audio and video quality

Your recording environment will determine what additional equipment or devices you'll need to maximize the audio and video in your lecture recording. In a quiet, well-lit room or office, position your webcam so that it records your head and shoulders and sits at roughly eye level.

5. For the last steps, record and edit your video

Once you are done with the preparation, record your final clips, if you want your lecture or class to have a look at a presentation, make that, you could also use the screen sharing features and show the audience the slides to learn better.
Once all recording is done, edit the video, and sync with the audio and notes if/when required.

6. Upload or share the final version of your draft

Once the editing is complete, you may sell courses online by posting module-by-module videos of your online class to various or specific sites for learners to access. You could also create your own app or website with Teachmore.
