Create Videos using YouTube’s My Webcam Tool

YouTube’s My Webcam tool is a free tool you can use to record short videos using a webcam. Instructors could record videos and add them to Sakai courses to introduce yourself to students in your classes. Or introduce weekly lessons or assignments.

To record a video you’ll need:

  • Gmail account
  • Webcam (some webcams have built in microphones)
  • Microphone (if your webcam doesn’t have a microphone)
  • Flash installed on your computer

Tip: Before recording your video it’s a good idea to write a script. Save the script as a text file. You can use your script to add captions to your video.
