2. Tips for preparing to record your presentation:

  • Ensure you have a strong and stable Wi-Fi
  • If you have access to a headset or microphone, this would be an upgrade from your basic laptop microphone. Also, please make sure that the microphone is not touching any clothing, jewelry, , as this will have a detrimental effect on your audio.
  • Use as quiet an area as possible avoiding areas that have an echo or background noise such as TVs, radios,

3. Methods of Recording your presentation:

Education Summit

Recording Via Zoom Meeting

You can use Zoom to record your presentation. If you do not have a Zoom account already, it is free for single, short time usage by individuals, and easy to use [https://zoom.us/]. Using Zoom will allow you to share your screen to show your PowerPoint presentation (if you have one), share sound and record your presentation on your computer. Zoom has a time limit of 40mins for meetings with more than two (2) presenters, if you do not have a Zoom paid account. 
To use Zoom for your pre-recorded presentation please log in to your Zoom account, Start Meeting, share your screen showing your PowerPoint presentation (if you have one) and Click Record on your Computer. The Record button is usually found at the bottom of the screen. We recommend you test it out if you are not familiar with recording via Zoom. When you end the meeting/recording you will be able to access your recording on your computer. This should be located in your Downloads folder unless you have specified an alternative location. NB. Do not turn off your computer until the download is completed.

Record a Google Slides Presentation with VIEMO

With the right tool, it is easy to record a Google Slides presentation with audio and video. In the GIF above, we see a presenter using Vimeo Record to film both his screen and camera as he walks through a strategic presentation.

The main advantage of this tool over PowerPoint is that it is more collaborative and allows more than one user to work in the same file simultaneously.

Here are the steps to capturing the presentation as a screen recording.

Step 1 – Download and Install Vimeo Record Extension

You can only access Google Slides on your browser. As such, to use Vimeo Record to capture your presentation, you need to have the extension installed on your browser.

After downloading the extension file, follow the simple instructions on how to install the extension. For easy access, pin the Vimeo Record to your browser from the Extension icon on the browser.

Step 2 – Start Recording

Next, grant Vimeo Record permission to access your microphone and camera.

Ensure that you are on the screen with your Google Slides presentation. Vimeo Record automatically syncs with your audio and video sources. Click on the Record button.

Step 3 – Share the Presentation

Vimeo Record will capture everything on your screen, including your face, via the webcam.

You can choose the video quality and have the whole recording ready to share in seconds.

Another option for distributing the presentation – or series of presentations – is housing it in a centralized ‘hub’ for stakeholders to peruse on their own time. Vimeo’s video library solution achieves just that, a cinematic viewing experience for housed videos.

How to record a presentation with LOOM

Record your Google Slide, Powerpoint or Keynote presentation with ease.

Recording a presentation with Loom is a great way to save time and ensure your delivery is exactly how you planned it.

— Use the Chrome extension to record your Google Slides presentation.

— Use the desktop app to record your Powerpoint, Keynote or Canva presentation. Capture your camera bubble across any application.



How to record your Powerpoint or Keynote presentation: 

When using PowerPoint or Keynote presentation we suggest using the desktop app as this allows you to record with your camera bubble across any application.

  1. Open your presentation slides from your preferred application.
  2. Then open the desktop app and select Screen and Camera with Full screen as your capture mode settings.
  3. Once ready, hit Start recording, then launch your Powerpoint or Keynote presentation into Full-Screen Presentation mode.
  4. Record your slides as normal and once you’re done, click to end the recording.
  5. Your video will then process to your Library – from here we suggest you trim your recording so your viewer doesn’t see the first few moments while you were setting up. Here’s how to trim your Loom recording.
