Tips for Recording Online Webinar

  • Some past webinars will be uploaded to video sharing sites like YouTube. Before starting to record a webinar with third-party applications, you can ask the person who is in charge of the webinar whether there will be an online recording after it's over.
  • No matter which webinar you use, you'd better test it before the actual webinar starts to make sure everything is working correctly. This practice is essential as you can get familiar with the recording and ensure everything will be OK when it's time to record an online live webinar session.
  • You can think about how much of the screen you want to show and what you wish to include in the final video before recording a live webinar. For example, if you're going to add the chatbox, you shouldn't display the video presentation on the full screen. The beforehand thoughts will help to make the recording process smooth and get what you need.
  • During the recording of a webinar, you need to make sure that the notifications on your computer have been turned off. Otherwise, the notification sounds, pop-up windows may destroy your webinar recording.
