Screen Capture Programs

How to do it yourself:

Step One: Create your Screen Recording

  • Decide what it is you are going to capture - it's better to develop 2 or 3 shorter screen captures rather than one longer one
  • The size of the screen capture should be less than 1024 X 768
  • Develop a script or outline of how you are going to narrate the screen capture
  • Do a couple of dry runs
  • Create the screen captures 

Step Two: Upload your files

  • No labels
