The Miami University Libraries Instructional Video Youtube Channel
Feel free to create and use your own intro if you don't like mine. I do ask, however, that if you host your videos on the MUL Videos YouTube channel that you use the PowerPoint file below to create the thumbnail image. This is so that the channel maintains a consistent look and feel.
If you are a Mac User, you already have the tools needed for video creation on your computer; Quicktime can be used for for screen capture and iMovie had most of the editing features that you need. On a Windows-based PC, the built-in solutions are less than ideal. There are, however, some great options available free of charge. My favorites are:
Capture: Atomi ActivePresenter (https://atomisystems.com/activepresenter/). This program, designed for capturing and narrating PowerPoint slides, also allows you to capture your screen in 1080P and export it as an MP4 file. I have had good results using this.
Editing: There are a number of very good video editing platforms available to you free of charge. You could use WeVideo, but if you want a video platform not based in the cloud there are a number of choices.
