Using a webcam to record yourself can be an exercise in frustration without the proper webcam software. In our Instructor Presence workshop we recommend using Screencast-o-matic to control your webcam. Just be sure to turn off screen recording and make sure that your microphone is on.
UAA has a Screencast-o-matic Pro account that UAA faculty and staff may access at this address: http://screencast-o-matic.com/ua_anchorage
