Before embarking on the creation of a video of your lecture/presentation as teaching/learning materials it is important that you consider if there is a ‘pedagogic’ necessity to create this type of resource. Are you certain that you need to capture a video of yourself speaking? Is this mode of delivery ‘imperative’ to the teaching/learning requirements/outcomes? Are you using the whiteboard or other physical visual aids (other than PowerPoint slides) as part of your presentation? If not, you may well be better creating an ‘audio’ recording of your talk and supporting this with slides/images from your presentation [tell me how?]. This type of audio/visual resource can still be presented in a video format.
