Quicktime will record screencasts of all the elements that can be seen on your desktop. This is useful if you are recording more than just the content of a webpage.
There are three options in QuickTime
New Movie Recording: video and audio of you talking to the computer
New Audio Recording: audio only (no picture recorded)
New Screen Recording: recording of screen movement; choice of audio or no audio
Select New Screen Recording
Look for the recording helper tool
The Options menu lets you customize the recording setup.
Use the Built in Microphone if recording a voiceover.
Show Mouse Clicks can help focus students on your use of an app or website.
Select the required recording frame:
Capture Entire Screen: screenshot of whole screen including menu bar
Capture Selected Window: screenshot of selected active window
Capture Selected Portion: screenshot of portion that is selected by "click and drag-over" motion (cursor becomes crosshairs - selected area is highlighted)
Record Entire Screen: video recording of whole screen including menu bar
Record Selected Portion: video recording of portion that is selected by "click and drag-over" motion (cursor becomes crosshairs - selected area is highlighted)
Screen recordings are started by selecting the Record button. They are stopped by clicking the Stop button in the Menu bar.
Here's a nifty tip.
Open the page that you want to broadcast.
Select New Movie Recording. Resize and place the video to the side of the screen.
Click on the video window and select View > Float on Top
Now go to QuickTime and File > New Screen Recording (make sure the microphone is on) and begin recording both the broadcast page and the video feed. Check for background apps or open webpages.
