Recording with PowerPoint 

You can record your presentation over your slides using the PowerPoint desktop application (the online version won't work for this!). Once you've finished your slide presentation, you can record a voice-over and include a video of you speaking. 

Getting Started 

To start your recording, go to the "Slide Show" tab and select "Record Slide Show."

You will then be brought to the recording screen where you can record your voice and webcam view while you progress through the slides.


Recording Page Controls 




Recording Your Session 

  • You can record your session with or without your webcam view. If you do not want to include a recording of yourself, click the camcorder button. This will turn your webcam off.
  • You will see a countdown once you press the red record button. It will then record whatever is on your slide.
  • If you want to pause the recording, you can press the pause button. Press record to start again.
  • If you want to end and save the recording, press the stop button.
  • You can navigate through your slides while recording (by pressing the forward and backwards buttons) or you can pause between each slide.
  • If you want to use a laser pointer while you are recording, press the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and your mouse key.
  • If you want to check the recording on a slide, press "replay." 
  • When you are done recording, press "stop" and exit the recording page.


Finishing Touches 

  • You cannot move the webcam view while you are recording, but you can move it once the recording is done.
    • You can drag and resize the webcam view on each individual slide.
  • To export your video, go to File - Export - Create a video.
    • You can select the length of time spent on each slide, OR 
    • You can select "use recorded times and narrations" if you narrated over each slide.
  • Remember to export your video as a MPEG-4 (.mpg4) file.
    • It might take your file a while to export.
