If you've been asked to submit a recording of yourself, you have several options for both recording and submitting.



You can create a Zoom meeting, then present and record in the cloud or locally. If you record locally, the video will need to be uploaded to another site like YouTube or Google Drive. In either case, you will need to make the link available to others.

Narrated PowerPoint

You can record audio as a voiceover to go along with slides. If you use a Mac, you can use Quicktime to record yourself presenting with the slides

Phone, tablet, or computer

You can use the video option on a device to make a recording.


If your professor has asked you to submit a recording, you have several options of how to make the file available to them.


If you use Zoom to make a recording, you can either have it saved to the cloud or saved locally. If the video is saved locally, you will need to make it available through other means such as YouTube or Google Drive.


You can use a YouTube account to post videos and share links. YouTube has three levels of access: private, which would only be available to you; unlisted, which would be accessible with the link but not searchable; and public, which is accessible with a link or a search. Generally, unlisted will work well to provide you with a means of making videos available while also making them not open to the world.

Google Drive

You can upload videos to your Google drive and share the link with the class. Be sure you make the files accessible to others; Google will usually prompt you to check these settings when you share but it doesn’t hurt to check.
