Video Assignments - Recording Your Screen

Follow

Learners: demonstrates how to simultaneously record your webcam and a presentation within an Individual Project or a Group Project. To ensure the best experience possible, please follow our Basic System Requirements and Check your System Before Completing your Video Assignment.

Mac users - allowing your browser to record your screen

If your computer currently uses macOS 10.15 “Catalina”, macOS 11 "Big Sur," or macOS 12 "Monterey" you need to explicitly allow your browsers to record your screen. This permission will only need to be accepted once.

  • When you open screensharing, you may see a dialog like this one:
    Screen_Shot_2019-10-21_at_10.38.08_AM.png
  • Select “Open System Preferences." If you do not see the dialog above, please open your Mac's system preferences, then click Security and Privacy, then click the privacy tab.
  • In the menu on the left, scroll down and click on Screen Recording.
  • In the window on the right, make sure the box next to your browser is checked.
  • Quit and re-open your browser to apply the changes, and your system will now allow screenshare.

If your instructor has asked you to record a presentation, you'll need to record your desktop and webcam simultaneously as described below. Rather than adding slides or uploading a powerpoint, you'll click through your presentation while recording to mimic the feel of a live presentation.

Screen sharing with a single monitor

For screen sharing with a single monitor, arrange your Bongo assignment and the content you're sharing side by side on your screen.

Screen sharing with double monitors

For Screen sharing with two or more monitors, arrange your Bongo assignment and your content so that both are visible at all times.

Starting the Recording in Bongo

Now that your content and assignment are side-by-side, you are ready to start your recording. Follow the steps below to successfully record your video.

Important

While you're recording, make sure all windows stay open and active; don't close or minimize windows until you've stopped recording.

Minimizing or closing the presentation window interrupts the connection between the presentation and your browser, so Bongo may not be able to capture all of the data and your recording may not process correctly.

  1. Within your assignment, click the Add addbutton.png button then click the Video videoicon.png icon.

Pro Tip

If you are experiencing issues with activating the Bongo recorder because the recorder is unable to access either the camera, microphone or screen-share, try using the Standalone Recorder! This will allow users to work around browser permission issues when accessing Bongo through an embedded environment.
