Webcam and screen capture includes video of you and other speakers and your computer screen or other window. Webcam and screen capture can take many different forms to draw students’ attention to the right content at the right time.
Picture-in-picture is a variation of webcam and screen capture in which the presenter and the presentation are both visible at the same time. The presentation typically appears full screen while the webcam feed appears in a smaller frame. The two components may trade positions as desired during the recording, which might require some post-production.
