How To Record A Screencast With Facecam In Windows 10
The past year in the covid-19 lockdown has uprooted our lives in many ways. Due to the closure of workplaces and schools, it was difficult to maintain our jobs, studies and simply keeping in touch with people.
However, the use of technology, especially videos, in the lockdown helped us stay connected with the world outside our homes. Be it video calls for keeping in touch, webcam recorded lectures by teachers, or video recorded work meetings.
This article will help you to create impressive videos for screencast in your daily life, for work or play, but first, let us see what exactly a screencast is.
What is a screencast?
A screencast is like a screenshot of your computer screen, but with audio narration. Simply put, it is another name for screen capture or screen recording with audio.
Why using a screencast?
Incorporating the webcam recording in your videos will make them more engaging and relatable as viewers can actually see the host talking to them. Making tutorials, recorded class lessons, training videos, and recorded presentations are all applications of screencast, which make it easier to deliver your idea to the viewer.
Here are some benefits of using screencasts for work and personal life:
For effective communication
By involving audio narration, instead of video only, we can have effective communication. Adding a voiceover in your screen recording, you can narrate each step as you’re doing it in real-time. By showing what you’re doing (instead of only telling) you can demonstrate the application of the tools more effectively in your videos.
You can also create multiple tutorials for frequently discussed topics. So while training your new recruits, you will not need to allocate time for each one of them, rather you can make a library of these tutorials for them to watch and learn. In this way, you can save time by not having to answer the same frequently asked questions over and over.
Play, pause and re-watch with ease
Another advantage of screencasting is that the viewers can pause and replay the video at any point, for easy understanding and maximum knowledge retention. As opposed to a face-to-face meeting, where interruptions are not appreciated, the viewer has no worries of disturbance in a recorded video. Videos can be watched at any time which is convenient for the viewer.
Now that we know what a screencast is, let’s see how to create one!
