Last night I suggested using Presefy to have students follow along with your slides on their mobile devices or laptops. Presefy is great if everyone is in the same room and you’re speaking directly to them. When everyone is not in the same place, you’ll need to find another tool to give a remote presentation.
Zoom.us is a great service for hosting and recording video conferences in high definition. Zoom.us allows you to record your video in a side-by-side format to equally feature both people in the recording or switch between featuring one person more than another in the video (click here for an example). When you record through Zoom you’re given an HD video file to save locally as well as a separate HD voice recording. Zoom isn’t limited to just webcam views as you can also share your screen through the service. Zoom’s free plan allows you to record for up to forty minutes in each video. The number of videos that you can create is not limited. As you can screenshare through Zoom it could be also be a good platform for hosting remote tutoring sessions and or creating short instructional videos. Zoom does require that you install a desktop client in order to call, receive calls, and to record.
