Zoom Lecture Capture or Voice-Over PowerPoint
Best practices for online course lecture recordings
Course design experts recommend chunking information for student consumption. In other words, shorten lectures into smaller chunks of 10-15 minutes focusing on a single concept. This will allow students to stay attentive and focus on smaller bites of information while making the upload/download process much easier for both instructors and students.
Zoom has been identified as the go-to campus solution for recording lectures that can be uploaded either to the Mediasite platform or directly into courses hosted in D2L.

Voice-Over PowerPoint is another solution for creating lectures that align with your PowerPoint slides currently built.
Please note, when creating voice-over PowerPoint slides to post in D2L, students must download presentations outside of D2L to play in “Show” version on their computers. If you have a large slide deck with multiple graphics, consider breaking the slides up into multiple mini-lectures to alleviate the upload and download time on this file type. D2L can upload files no larger than 1GB.
