Free Video Creation Software for Regis Faculty

How do I create and put a video into a course? 
ID&T recommends and supports two tools for creating videos and tutorials and loading them into courses. Regis has institutional licenses for both and no additional university funds are necessary for purchasing licenses.

1.       Office Mix is a Microsoft product that when loaded appears in the tool menu of PowerPoint that allows:
·         Screen recording – create a narrated video of whatever is on your screen
·          Narrated slide recording – comparable to Adobe Presenter
·         Screenshots – allows directly copying from an open window to a ppt slide
·         Inserting audio or video – add existing files in a new presentation
·         Export to video – turn a completed project into a mp4 video
·         Saving projects to Office 365 Cloud – for archiving and sharing

2.       Regis MediaSpace is the user interface of the media server vendor that the university uses to store and distribute media content. The interface allows:
·         Screen recording – create a narrated video of whatever is on your screen
·         Webcam Recording – Record directly from a webcam on your computer screen
·         Media Upload – Upload audio and video files from other sources such as Office mix
·         Store media files – files can be tagged, have URLs, and can be searchable
