An important note: The steps below work in the Teams App on my machine running in Windows 10. We’ve come to realize that different operating systems have different features and behavior. If you have a Mac, Chromebook, or use the browser-based Teams site, please let everyone know how/if this works for you in the comments below. Thanks!
There are lots of solutions for recording video lectures that include your webcam image. Here’s one that doesn’t require any extra software. We’ll use the Microsoft programs Teams and Stream, both of which are available free to every member of the K community, to record a video lecture about recording video lectures!
The key things you’ll need to do:
- Select “Meet now” to start a call in your Team, but don’t invite any other participants. Please note that the “Meet Now” button has moved to the upper right corner of the Teams window.
- “Share screen” if you want to include PowerPoint or other content in the recording
- Record the call using the three dots menu …
- When you select stop recording, your recorded lecture will appear immediately at your MS Stream site. Even if you’ve never used Stream, you have an account already set up through the K College Microsoft suite of programs. Click here to learn more about Stream.
- Trim the beginning and end of the recording in Stream for a more polished final product.
- Copy the link from Stream to include in your Moodle site for students to access the recording.
