How to make recordings using your own PC/laptop

Slidecasts or presentations with sound can be created quite easily using PowerPoint. All you need is a microphone, at best an external one, but also the built-in microphone of your laptop will do.

For videotaping presentations, you can also use the recording function in Adobe Connect. Simply create a meeting room, upload your presentation there and start recording as soon as your presentation begins. Basic editing (editing, anonymization) can be done after the recording (see How2 Adobe Connect)

There are also easy ways for audio recordings - whether on a PC/laptop or with a smartphone.
