Recording your screen and writing on your iPad
For the purposes of this article, we will show how to record a PowerPoint; however, any thing you bring up on your screen whether it be Notes, a document, or an application will be recorded. To follow these steps, be sure to download the Office 365 PowerPoint app. Also, be sure your PowerPoint(s) are saved and available on your OneDrive.
Tips for recording:
1. Create videos that are approximately 10 minutes in length.
2. Keep your iPad on a flat surface or propped in a way that avoids movement during recording (this avoids the microphone from picking up movement and static).
3. Speak clearly into the iPad.
