  • 36. Record your presentation. You can upload the raw footage or add the slides later. Do a demonstration instead for practical, hands-on tutorials. Prioritize audio. Get the camera close, cut out background noise. @andymci | #PCTO19
  • 37. Record your screen with Zoom. Yes, the videoconferencing software. Start a Zoom meeting. Hit record. Share your screen. Present your content. It's good for software tutorials, reviews, etc...
