my name is mike benson in this tutorial

0:00:13.840,0:00:17.119

0:00:19.920,0:00:23.680
record

0:00:20.480,0:00:23.680
an audio voiceover

0:00:23.760,0:00:26.960
powerpoint has the built-in capability

0:00:26.160,0:00:30.000
to record

0:00:26.960,0:00:31.599
audio of your course presentations you

0:00:30.000,0:00:34.079
can use this feature to help

0:00:31.599,0:00:36.480
increase student learning in your online

0:00:34.079,0:00:39.280
and blended courses

0:00:36.480,0:00:40.480
once recorded you can then export these

0:00:39.280,0:00:42.960
presentations as

0:00:40.480,0:00:44.960
course videos which can be integrated

0:00:42.960,0:00:49.520
into a learning management system

0:00:44.960,0:00:51.840
such as canvas blackboard or moodle

0:00:49.520,0:00:53.039
to record your audio you will need a

0:00:51.840,0:00:54.800
microphone

0:00:53.039,0:00:56.079
most computers have a built-in

0:00:54.800,0:00:58.399
microphone

0:00:56.079,0:00:59.840
you can also purchase a separate

0:00:58.399,0:01:02.160
microphone

0:00:59.840,0:01:03.280
or like with what i'm doing with this

0:01:02.160,0:01:06.000
tutorial

0:01:03.280,0:01:08.880
you can simply use the earphones that

0:01:06.000,0:01:11.200
came with your smartphone

0:01:08.880,0:01:13.040
whichever microphone you decide to use

0:01:11.200,0:01:15.280
be sure to read the directions

0:01:13.040,0:01:18.159
and test the microphone before you

0:01:15.280,0:01:20.640
record your presentation

0:01:18.159,0:01:22.080
one last point with using an entry level

0:01:20.640,0:01:24.560
microphone

0:01:22.080,0:01:26.479
always place the microphone slightly to

0:01:24.560,0:01:28.479
one side of your mouth

0:01:26.479,0:01:30.560
this will help reduce popping in the

0:01:28.479,0:01:34.720
audio when you pronounce words

0:01:30.560,0:01:37.680
that contain the letters p and b

0:01:34.720,0:01:39.200
to record audio we can go to the insert

0:01:37.680,0:01:44.799
menu

0:01:39.200,0:01:44.799
down to audio then record audio

0:01:45.520,0:01:50.399
the record sound window will open when

0:01:48.640,0:01:55.840
you're ready to start your lecture

0:01:50.399,0:01:55.840
select the record button

0:01:56.880,0:02:03.759
the big question here is but is it art

0:02:01.280,0:02:04.560
again we're looking at now on the left

0:02:03.759,0:02:08.080
bottle rack

0:02:04.560,0:02:11.280
on the right bicycle wheel two

0:02:08.080,0:02:15.599
seminal early pieces

0:02:11.280,0:02:18.640
store bought by marcel duchamp

0:02:15.599,0:02:19.040
from the nineteen teens these two works

0:02:18.640,0:02:22.400
again

0:02:19.040,0:02:25.680
question creativity they

0:02:22.400,0:02:28.160
question originality

0:02:25.680,0:02:30.080
and they question the whole nature of

0:02:28.160,0:02:32.560
art making

0:02:30.080,0:02:33.440
once you make your recording a speaker

0:02:32.560,0:02:35.840
icon

0:02:33.440,0:02:37.840
with an audio player will appear on your

0:02:35.840,0:02:40.319
slide

0:02:37.840,0:02:42.000
i recommend resizing and moving this

0:02:40.319,0:02:45.120
icon to the side

0:02:42.000,0:02:47.680
so it doesn't interfere with your slide

0:02:45.120,0:02:51.840
you can also reposition the items on

0:02:47.680,0:02:51.840
your slide

0:02:52.720,0:02:56.560
to play the audio move the cursor over

0:02:55.840,0:03:00.480
the speaker

0:02:56.560,0:03:00.480
and then select the play button

0:03:01.200,0:03:04.400
as you record your audio don't forget to

0:03:03.840,0:03:06.879
save

0:03:04.400,0:03:09.360
after each slide you don't want to

0:03:06.879,0:03:11.920
record your entire presentation

0:03:09.360,0:03:14.560
and then have some type of issue that

0:03:11.920,0:03:16.400
causes you to lose all your work

0:03:14.560,0:03:18.800
in our next video tutorial we will

0:03:16.400,0:03:19.760
explore how to export your audio

0:03:18.800,0:03:22.480
lectures

0:03:19.760,0:03:24.400
as a video file which can then be used

0:03:22.480,0:03:33.840
in your online courses

0:03:24.400,0:03:33.840
