Screen Recording

Often, people like to make videos showing how to do something on a device or laptop. Most devices make it easy to do short screen recordings, in a variety of ways.

Tips

  • Zoom in on your screen using Ctrl or the Mac sign and the plus key (+). This will make the screen recording clearer and larger.
  • Use headphones with a mic – this will pick up your spoken words more clearly.
  • Don’t be afraid to take more than one recording.
  • These videos are most often short and sometimes silent. They are often accompanied by text explanations. If they are narrated, they would also need to be captioned.
  • Many might be turned into .gifs to run on a loop. Use a gifmaker like Giphy to make this happen.
