Screencast your Desktop (Record your screen)

If you want to teach someone how to use a specific software, application or website, screencasting is the way to go. While you record your screen, you can narrate your actions, to make sure you’re giving a thorough explanation.

Record your Live Streaming

Before you actually go live, you can do a dry run by recording the whole video. Act as if you’re presenting the real live stream. Afterwards, you can use the recording to analyze your script, your materials and equipment. Here is a checklist of everything you need to do before a live stream.

You can also record your whole live stream and share it later on with your social media followers, in case they missed the live event. The recorded video will become a valuable piece of content and you’ll be able to make the most out of your live streaming.
