  7. 7. Texas State Technical College | Copyright 20137 TexasStateTechnicalCollege|InstructionalSupport Toolbox Screenr Final Thoughts: • TSTC Instructional Support recommends that you either publish to your YouTube channel directly or download the video and upload to YouTube at a later time. Plus it it a good idea to keep a copy offline. • YouTube is a reliable resource and offers good flexiblity for streaming to multiple device platforms and good organization of files. • YouTube also offers methods of sharing including embed codes for your Moodle page(s). • Recording a quick answer video in response to a student email, choosing one of the smaller record windows for a webcam is recom- mended. • When recording a tutorial or demonstration of software, it is recom- meded to use the 1280 x 720 window. This is still considered HD and the quality is very good. • It is not recommended to record in full screen EVER. The file size is large, takes much longer to upload and process and the benefits of a larger recording area is negligible.
