If you have a mac with the most recent operating system you can use quicktime to record.

To use Quicktime:


In the QuickTime Player app on your Mac, choose File > New Movie Recording (or audio recording, or screen recording depending on your intent).When the recording controls appear, you see a green light next to the built-in camera in your Mac.


Click the Options pop-up menu, then choose any of the following recording options:

  • Camera: Choose a camera if you have more than one camera available.
  • Microphone: Choose a microphone if you have more than one microphone available.
  • Quality: Choose the recording quality. Maximum-quality recordings produce uncompressed files, which can use large amounts of storage space.

Saving your files

When saving your files please name your video files like this:

"Course initials_Course number_Prof. Name_Semester_video number"


"WRT _205_Selbach_Fall2020_001"

This allows the videos to be easily organized and easily identifiable.
We recommend making a folder somewhere simple, like your desktop, to save all of your videos so it is easy and organized later once you are ready to upload
