Recording materials from a computer

computer In connection with numerous questions about possible recording of tutorial videos/materials for students, we would like to inform you that the IT Centre does not have a license for this type of software. However, there are numerous free-of-charge applications that we can recommend: OBS Studio, DVD Video Soft Free Studio, Captura.
You can also do it using built-in Windows 10 functions. Below you will find links to several articles describing this functionality (it is somehow limited – you will find all information in the articles):

On MacOS screen recording has been built in:
– recording Command + Shift + 5
– cutting out Command + Shift + 4

It is best to share the recorded material via Google Drive from the uekat.pl account. We also inform that at present the IT Centre does not provide support for these applications.
