The first step is to open the Finder on your computer.
It should be on the dock on the bottom of your Macbook screen.
2 Click Applications
3 Doubleclick QuickTime Player
Click the small red "X" to open the Applications pop-up.
It can be a bit confusing, because nothing actually "opens," or "pops up." But you can tell QuickTime opened because at the top of your Macbook screen, the controls appear.
6 To start a screencast, click File
7 Click New Screen Recording
8 Click Options
9 Click MacBook Air Microphone
10 If you want to record your entire screen, Click Record Entire Screen
If you just want to record a part of your screen, Click Record Selected Portion. You can then select which part of your screen will be recorded.
Remember to hide, or close anything on your screen that you do not want recorded!
12 When you are ready to screencast, Click Record
Look for the small "Record" icon on the top of your screen, to make sure the recording has started.
You can now open anything you want to be captured in your screencast, such as a browser window in Chrome, or Safari
15 For example, this map of Montana! But you could record anything on your web browser, or computer screen.
16 When you are done screencasting, Click the small "Record" icon on the top of your Macbook screen.
17 When you stop recording, your video will automatically pop up on your desktop.
1 When you stop recording your screencast, or video, it will automatically pop up on your desktop. To save, and rename it easily first Click the red X to "Close" the video
Rename your video in the Export As box to reflect what your video is about - otherwise it will just be called "Untitled"
3 Next to "Where," click Desktop (or wherever you would like to save your video), so you know where to find it
4 Click Save
5 Now you can upload your video file anywhere to share it. To upload it into Google Classroom, Click "Add File" in the assignment.
(Under construction! If you have any QuickTime videos you have used in your teaching practice, send them my way!)
