Once you create your video, you can then Submit your Presentation to your Course.

WebCam and Voice Only Presentation Using Video Note

You have two options for a webcam only presentation. You can use the internal iLearn option for a Video Note or you can create a video via YuJa and just turn off the screen option. Here we will cover Video Note. See below for creating a video with YuJa.

If your video is less than 30 minutes, you can use the Record Video option in iLearn. You can find this in Assignments and Discussions. Depending on the type of assignment the instructor sets up, you will add the video differently.

You can distinguish the two types of assignments in the Submit description and by the fact that the Text Submission only has a text submission box and a File Submission requires you to add a file, audio, or video.

You can create videos with YuJa Media that can include audio, video and screen recording. The two options are the Browser Capture Studio and the YuJa Capture Software.

Browser Capture Studio (Web-based)

The Browser Capture Studio allows you to record one audio, one video, and one screen input. It is reliant upon a good network connection, so if you have a slower internet, we recommend downloading the YuJa Capture Software to do your recordings. Learn more about using the Browser Capture Studio.

YuJa Media Capture is a full-featured screen recording solution. With YuJa Capture, you can record any combination of two recording devices (for example two screens, two webcams, or 1 of each) and a microphone. While recording you also have the option to write or draw on your screen using the built-in annotation tools.

YuJa Capture can be downloaded from iLearn (ilearn.tntech.edu). You can access the installer by selecting YuJa Media and then clicking on the Create Recording link at the top.
