First, I wantetd to say thank you for all those videos you made from the ZOOM workshops. I participated to many. That was such a big help. Little by little I'm finding my way around, I think.
After, watching this video which I missed the presentation, I made my first video presentation with PPT. I was so surprised to hear that you could make a PDF from a PPT! And an explanation video also. I've learned so much. Basically it worked. But my video was so long. And when I check the final version, I discovered that each slide were too long!
I have surch the internet and the help in PPT, but I Don't seem to find the explanation that would really help me. So, I have a question about how do set the time for each slide automatically and that the recording starts automatically, not after 5 seconds on the slide! Or if you know an easy understanding YouTube video, it's OK, too. Sorry, I know you are busy, and it must be too basic for you!
But I'll keep swimming , trying, anyway. Uh, uh,...
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you found these workshops helpful.
I don't set the time automatically. When I record over a PPT slide, the slide show view on my Mac's screen shows the time. I usually wait 2-3 seconds before I start talking over a new slide and try to keep it less than two minutes per slide. I think it is a good idea to try to keep your explanation to 5-6 minutes maximum. If you think it is too long, you can divide it into two PPT presentations.
I'm not sure if this answers your question, but I hope it helps.
So, if I understand correctly, do you do like in this video?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdeRJpIxCF0&list=PLSKT97AFGYp0OpIDCvQHe1wCMkU9eNFfM
Actually, I have a Windows pc, and I recorded a slide at a time, with the Audio setting. So maybe it wasn't the smartest way. to do it.
But thank you for all the precious key points shared. Actually, I'm quite relieved that I can go through software that I already have in my PC and that I Don't need to download free software like "screenomatic".
The video you shared is informative. Maybe I misunderstood your first message about the timings. I don't use that function when I record over slides. I usually just start the recording. I don't use a PC, so I'm not sure how recordings work on them. It's nice to learn new functions on the software we already use. I think that helps relieve the stress of this emergency online teaching a lot.
I just wanted to share here a link I found to a video explanation through JALTCALL post:
I think it shows more in all details what you were speaking about.
Sorry for posting so many times,
I just wanted to thank you one more time for introducing me to such possibilities that I had in my PC and that I didn't even imagine.
And here are some links that really helped me more in the step by step, above all to select the recording video settings - I didn't find it with the previous video, but in the Following link there's a written explanation, which really helped me! (That's how bad I am!!!)
And also, to respect the advice of not more of 5 to 6 minutes explanation, here another link that helped me. Maybe it sounds obvious to most of people but I searched for it!
So, I finally got through with a viable video to export and for my students to feel ok to Watch!
I'm so happy! The beginning of a real Journey I think.
Thanks for sharing the links to the explanation videos. This will be helpful to a lot of people. Can you share the video you made? I bet people will be inspired to see what you made. I'm really happy that you found these workshops useful and that they inspired you to try some new things.
Ok, this was my final version to explain students how to get into the blog of their class. I said the comments in French and wrote comments in Japanese (like subtitle) and because I also recorded a PDF version of it, full lenght. For the video, there will be a part 2...
So, here is my part 1: https://vimeo.com/410941200/082b78c441
And, also I was thinking about the issue I wrote previously about cutting a PPT presentation in half, for this one, I copied it and erased half of slides I didn't want for the first version. But, I think that maybe just by choosing "not to display" in Japanese 非表示スライド should do the trick, no need to bother to go through copying and making 2 versions, I think now.
