Three Ways to Create Learning Videos at Home

Here are three alternatives to classroom capture that allow you to create learning videos right from your own computer at home or the office. We’ve also created a guide for the best practices to make good use of your own videos. Before you begin, create your home recording studio


  1. Use Zoom. You may already use Zoom to attend virtual meetings with colleagues or maybe even deliver a synchronous classroom experience. But you can also record using Zoom and capture your screen, webcam, and voice with a single application. This process is detailed in our Using Zoom to Record Lectures tutorial video.
  2. Use UD Capture Personal Capture. This application allows you to simultaneously record your screen, webcam, and voice. The best part is the screen and webcam are presented as two independent video streams that your viewer can switch back and forth and arrange on playback. This process is detailed in our UD Capture Personal Capture (Screen Recording) page.
  3. Narrated PowerPoint Lecture. If you use PowerPoint exclusively to deliver content, you can also record a narration along with each slide and share this with your students. This process is detailed in our Upload Narrated PowerPoint to My Media in Canvas page.
