I am thinking on making a video tutorial, that will be presented in my class and I want it to be like the one in YouTube.
But instead of typing the procedures or steps in a notepad, I want to replace it directly with my voice, so that while I'm using a certain program I can do the discussing part also.
Can anyone help me about this? Is there any free software that can record what I’m doing on my desktop and also record my voice?
How to make a video tutorial with audio?
You can use the Desktop Activity Recorder. It is free and easy to use. This program can record your entire desktop activity including audio.
It is recommended for video tutorials or trainings. You can download the software directly to this website.
To be able to record the entire screen of your desktop you need to set the video capture in full screen.
Launch Desktop Activity Recorder and select the “Region” on the menu found at the top and click the “Full Screen” from the list.
To be able to record an audio or voice you have a microphone of course, under the menu “Options” select the “Record audio from microphone” and under “Audio Options” select the “Audio Options for Microphone”.
On the new pop up window (Audio Options for Microphone) under “Audio Capture Device” select what kind of audio device you are using. Click Ok.
To start recording just click the Video Cam icon button on the main interface.
