Can I record my classes?

Many teachers and schools are asking about this feature firstly, because their student sometimes want to review the class and sometimes because the school wants to conduct quality assurance (QA) for it's teachers.

So we have developed a free 'video recording' extension in Chrome however, there are plenty of other free recording options too or a lot of very affordable and specialised software for as little as $9 per month.

Note, for advanced users (Virtual classroom API for developers) we will be able to offer server-side video recording soon (storing in real-time in the cloud) but unfortunately due to current demand, we've decided to postpone the launch of this feature until later this year, 2020.  

If you are wanting our free option, please review the Chrome extension below.

This is how it works:

Step 1: Download the extension from the Chrome store (currently this is only available for exisiting LearnCube customers)

Step 2: You'll see the 'LearnCube' icon on your web browser, click the button

Step 3: Click record

Step 4: Choose your screen

Step 5: Start recording

Step 6: Stop the recording.

Step 7: The recording will then save to your desktop

Tip 1: You can choose the 'quality' of the video recording from Advanced Options (you'll see this in the Chrome plugin under Record Screen).

Our recommendation is: 

  • Format: VP8 or VP9
  • Frames per second: 25 - 30
  • Bitrate per second: 1MB (100KB minimum)

This creates a good quality recording without involved too much data/storage.

Here is an interesting article on which format to choose if you'd like to dig into this a little deeper...

Tip 2:

Your recording is easy and quick to save into your own google drive or dropbox folder for student, teacher or school records.
