Note: You must have the Personal Capture software installed on your computer to create a recording.
Launch the Personal Capture application, and click "Start Recording."
Check the sources for the audio and video inputs.
Video (Left) is normally your computer screen. Video (Right) would be a webcam source, if you elect to use it.
Tick the boxes for the components you want to use in this recording.
Give your recording a title.
Hit "Start Capture." It will respond with a 5 second countdown.
Immediately open your Powerpoint file. Deliver your presentation in full-screen mode.
To take a break, select the Echo icon from the menu bar and select Pause Recording. To begin recording again, select Resume Recording.
After you've finished your presentation, stop the recording by typing Cmd + 8.
The "My Recordings" list shows all Personal Capture recordings made (both published and unpublished).
Here, you can preview any of your recordings and make light edits. Please note that your recording is not published by default and is only saved to your computer. (Publishing is an additional step that forwards your recording to a Tufts server and makes it accessible as streaming video.)
