Creating a Video Mini-Lecture

We recommend Open Broadcasting Software (OBS) as a great way to record yourself giving a presentation or lecture. It has more flexibility and results in a higher quality video than simply recording your screen on zoom/skype. It is easy to install and much easier to use than any video editing software.

Use the following four resources to help you:

  1. Introduction to OBS and how it can be used. 
  2. Tips for good video layout (this is useful regardless of whether you chose to use OBS).
  3. Links to OBS download instructions for Mac, Windows and Linux.
  4. How you could include live annotations or a blackboard style presentation with OBS

Keywords: open broadcasting software, video editing software
