Recording a PowerPoint Lecture

Many of us are familiar with making PowerPoint lectures.  Here is a quick tutorial showing how to record a PowerPoint Lecture, then save as an MP4 which you should upload to Mediasite.  The content of these two lectures is identical, but you may want to experience the difference between recording a lecture using the PowerPoint record presentation function and a screen capture tool such as Zoom or Mediasite.  You may notice that if you must demonstrate an application or tool on your computer, screen capture is the better option.
