Lecture Capture Using Quicktime on Mac

By Carlo Daniels, Instructional Development Services Graduate Assistant

QuickTime for Mac OS is a powerful media technology, which allows one to watch video from the web or one’s computer.  Furthermore, QuickTime also gives one the ability to screen record, making it possible to capture lectures presented within COEHS classrooms at WIU.  Benefits of doing this include having lecture-capture for flipped classroom techniques and creating content for mobile devices. These benefits in turn can be great strategies for reinforcement, test preparation/study, and use for students who miss classes.

One simply has to present their PowerPoint presentation (if that is the presentation software to be used for lecture) as he/she would normally do so in class; however, with the addition of having QuickTime’s screen recording option up and running before-hand.  QuickTime will record all audio and video during the lecture period: Videos created for each lecture can then be uploaded to the CITR streaming server from where students can access the recorded lecture videos via a link sent to them.

Any classroom containing a computer with a Mac OS Snow Leopard or higher is able to screen record using QuickTime.  Thus, QuickTime for Windows will not work.  However, Mac laptops equipped with QuickTime (and microphones) are available for faculty to rent through Instructional Development Services in HH104.  Mac laptops can be connected to projectors in select classrooms where laptop connectivity is available.  The following is a list of COEHS classrooms with laptop connectivity if you have a laptop that you want to use instead of the room machine:

Brophy 224, 227
Currens 204, 415
Horrabin 1, 4, 7, 21, 26, 27, 43, 44, 59, 78, 82, 83, 111
Knoblauch 152, 202, 203, 206
Stipes 108, 231, 301

TechTip: Using Quicktime for Mac to do Screen Recording

By Brittani Carter and Amanda Richards, Instructional Development Services Lab Assistant

In order to record your lectures via Quicktime you must have a Macintosh computer and have the Snow Leopard operating system or higher and QuickTime.

1.)  Open QuickTime. If there is not an icon on the desktop, go to the Spotlight in the upper right-hand corner of the screen (it looks like a magnifying glass) and input the application name QuickTime.

2.)  In the list you should see QuickTime Player as a choice. Click on it to select it, and the program will open. You will not necessarily see a new window open but you will see the QuickTime Player menu bar appear at the left top of your screen.

3.)  From the QuickTime Player menu bar, choose File > New > Screen Recording.

4.)  A small black Screen Recording dialog box will appear.

5.)  Click on the drop-down menu to the right of the dialog box and make the following settings:

  • Microphone – choose the microphone that you will be using.
  • Quality – choose Medium or High depending on the detail you are showing. Medium will result in a smaller file size.
  • Save To – choose the computer’s Desktop folder so that the recording is easy to find when you are finished.

6.)  After these settings have been made, press the Red recording button back in QuickTime Player to begin the screen recording. Go back in to PowerPoint (if that is the program that you are using) and start the presentation as you normally would. When you are finished end the show or close your document.

7.)  After ending your presentation or leaving the program that you had open you will notice that the screen recording is still going. You will need to press the Black Stop button (which replaces the Red recording button) on the Screen Recording dialog box to stop the screen recording.

8.)  After you stop the recording your recorded file will be displayed on the screen. You will then choose File>Export. When the Export dialog box appears, make the following selections:

  • In the Export As field, type in a name for the movie file. Make this descriptive so your student will know which class it is for.
  • In the Where drop-down menu, select the computer’s Desktop folder. This way it will be easy to find your file when you are ready to upload it to the streaming server.
  • In the Format folder choose Mac & PC. (If you later find that the files are too large for your students to view you can select something such as iPad or iPhone from the list.)

9.)  Once you have made these settings, press the Export button.

10.)  Once your movie has finished exporting you can close the QuickTime Player application by choosing File>Quit.
