Screen recording is really quite an underrated tool. Because it is commonly used to create video guides and tutorials, people often tend to assume that is the sum total of its uses.
Nothing could be further from the truth however, and in fact screen recording can be a very useful studying tool. If you’re interested in finding out how you could use it so aid when you’re studying anything at all – here’s a few ways to try:
Save educational online videos to watch anywhere and anytime
Odds are you don’t need to be told just how many really useful educational videos are out there, ranging from content on YouTube and other websites such as TED Talks, to online courses. Normally you’d have to be online to watch these videos due to the fact they are streamed, but screen recording will provide you with the option to record and save it so you can watch it anywhere and at any time.
In short you can use screen recording to save any educational online videos that you feel you may want to refer to at a later point in time. Once you do you could even transfer it to a mobile device, extract clips with important information, or do anything else you want.
Save video calls of study sessions
Platforms such as Skype and Google Hangouts have made it easier than ever to place video calls and communicate far more effectively – to the point where you can even have entire study sessions over video calls. However generally these platforms don’t let you ‘save’ the content of a video call, but screen recording will let you get around that.
To put it simply you can use screen recording to save any video calls that you feel may be useful, whether it is a complete study session or a quick chat you had with a friend about one of your subjects. It isn’t difficult to learn how to record a Google Hangout, and for example you could use Movavi Screen Recorder to get started.
Record videos of any issues that crop up
Considering a lot of the coursework and other questions and preparation that you carry out is done on a computer, screen recording can be a useful tool if you ever run into any issues. Rather than trying to describe the problem you’re facing, you could record a video of it and show it to others.
As you can imagine this will make it a lot easier for you to get help more quickly, as there’ll be no confusion over it.
Safe to say you should be starting to see just how powerful screen recording can be, and how it could help you to study more effectively. At the end of the day because it can save any content from your screen, it is a very useful tool to have – and you may even find other ways that it can help when you’re studying a particular subject or revising for an exam.
