It’s a regular question in Facebook groups, “how do I record my screen for video tutorials?”. Before I knew how to do it, I thought it would be a really tricky or pricey thing to do. It turns out it’s super simple and best of all – it’s free!

Why create screen share tutorial videos?

Gain Trust

Creating screen share tutorials is a great way to gain trust using video. You are providing value to your audience and you don’t have to put your face on camera if you don’t want to. Perfect if you are an introvert who hates wearing make up – like I am.

Build Confidence

If you have been scared by the prospect of creating video for you blog (or even Youtube) this could be a great way for you to dip your toe in the water. You can build your confidence by only sharing your voice.

Show expertise

Screen share tutorials are a great way to demonstrate your expertise at something. You can show your audience exactly how something works and lead by example.

Good practice for creating online courses

If you intend to create online courses this is a great skill to have. I always prefer it when online courses share tutorials where you can see applications in action as well as using slide shows.

You will need practice, the first screen share video I did was truly awful. I wrote a script and I sounded like a robot. Now I record them right away without a script as if I am showing a friend how to use an application.

How to record your screen and your voice

You have a couple of options to do this for free. If you have Quicktime on your computer, you simply select to record your screen and make sure you select one of the audio options too. This is to make sure that you actually record your voice.

If you don’t have Quicktime, you can use Zoom. It’s an online meeting software which is free for small one on one meetings that last under 40 minutes. You can also record your screen and voice for free. I have recorded a little screen share video tutorial to show you how it’s done. (Well it wouldn’t be right if I hadn’t done one for this post – would it?)
