How to make video lectures for YouTube

School teachers as well as students make video lectures for YouTube all the time and either share with their friends and students or publish on YouTube. Not too long ago, people used only texts and images to make lecture notes. Not that these practices are gone, but slowly, thanks to the internet, tutors globally have discovered that with easy-to-use software such as Bandicam, they can make video lectures for free and distribute them online.

To study from a book, students need to focus on the texts they see on the paper and keep their eyes tracking the seemingly unending lines and blocks of texts. With a video lecture, however, you can do other things while still learning from it. You also get to speed up or slow down the play speed, rewind the lecture, and pause it, etc. and learn at your own pace.

This is why more people are starting to prefer watching video lectures over reading books because videos are faster to assimilate and watching them does not require as much time as reading pages of text. As a matter of fact, on search engine result pages, some people prefer solutions on YouTube to those on blogs. Video lectures have so many benefits over the regular books or even audio, and there are not many simple guides on how to make your lectures. Therefore, this short post will guide you on how to make video tutorials and share them to YouTube and other platforms fast and easy.

Steps for making video lectures for YouTube

Do you always watch YouTube video lectures and have something you wish to teach also? It may seem like a daunting task but all it takes is the first video. With a computer and screencast program, you can make video lectures quickly.

My preferred screencast program for creating video lectures is Bandicam. It simplifies the process and allows you to integrate helpful additions such as your face and voice recording to the video lecture. A smartphone can handle the voice recording part easily – simply connect it to your computer, and you’re good to go.

If you want to add an overlay of your face to a corner of the video lecture, then you will need a webcam. Now, with most other screen recording software, you would record the screencast and then do the facecam separately. It’s stressful and produces out-of-sync videos. However, in Bandicam, you get to record your screen display, audio, and the video from your webcam all simultaneously.
