Studio 313: Recording a Video

Posted August 29th, 2019 at 1:16 pm.

This guide is meant to provide assistance using the hardware and software contained in Studio 313 (Canaday Rm 313). For instruction on how to use your own equipment or equipment borrowed from the Canaday Circulation Desk, please email help@brynmawr.edu, and a member of the Educational Technology Services team can provide a consultation.

  • Turn on the LG TV by pressing the red power button on the top left of the remote.
  • Log in to the computer with your Bryn Mawr username/password.
  • Check that the room Logitech webcam and Snowball microphone to capture video and audio are plugged in to the PC on the wall.
  • To record a video, type Camera into the search bar at the bottom left corner of the screen and choose the Camera App.**
  • Once in the app, you will have the option to take a picture or record a video. Make sure the Video Camera icon is selected.
  • When you are ready to record, press the Video Camera icon on the right-hand side of the screen, and your recording will begin immediately.
  • When you are finished, press the Stop button on the right-hand side of the screen.
  • Your recorded video will appear as a small clip in the bottom right-hand corner of the Camera app. To play it back, double-click on it and then press the Play button.
  • When your video is open in the Camera app, you will see that there is an option to Share the video via email, Skype, or OneNote. Because of the size of video files, we do not recommend sharing video via email. You can also save to a flash drive using the USB hub on the table in the room.
  • By default, the video will save to the C: drive on the computer. To retrieve it, click on the file folder icon next to the search bar at the bottom left of your screen. Then double-click on the Pictures folder, and then on the Camera Roll. You can then upload your video to a platform of choice (e.g. OneDrive, Moodle, Tegrity, etc.) or save to a USB flash drive.
  • When you are finished, please log out of the computer and turn off the monitor using the red power button on the remote. If you attached your own audio or video device, remember to eject this and take it with you. We ask that you please re-plug in any devices and leave the room the way you found it.

**You may also record a video on a platform of choice. For example, you can record video in PowerPoint to make a voice-over presentation, or you can record directly in Moodle or Tegrity. If you need help with these options, or would prefer a consultation before starting your recording, please contact help@brynmawr.edu, and a member of the Educational Technology Services team can provide additional assistance.
