About this course

As you prepare to record your screencast, you'll want to make sure that you're thinking about audio and audio quality. Recording clear and easily understood audio is essential for a screencast.

It will also take a look at recording the sounds from your computer, like system notification sounds, to help make a clear and more easily understood screencast. 

In the second part of this course, you will learn how to set up and make the most of your web camera. You'll receive practical tips about positioning your camera, adjusting the set-up around you to make your image better, and some simple ways to light you and your background for a better picture.
