    HI Chris, PPT recording is a popular choice.

    Hi Chris, 

    How about if they used PowerPoint's Screen recording feature? Technically, you can have all your students edit the same Powerpoint- so they could record their screen and drop it in a class PPT as a slide to demonstrate mastery.

    That worked great. No lag. Thanks!

    Is there a way to get the file out of PPT? I would like to have students practice video editing with clips of their projects...

    Thank you, Chris. I am happy to help. In order to get the file out of PPT, try right-clicking the video, then select "Save Media As."

    Great! Thanks. I saw that but only saw "media file" as a file type. But it worked great and was an mp4.

    FYI, I ended up using the screen recording tool on the gamebar. All you do is press Windows + G and it opens up. Super easy to record things in Minecraft. Then it dumps the recordings into your video folder under Captures. Exactly what I needed for students to create their own animated Minecraft movie. Videos are nice and smooth without lag. There's even a cool feature that will automatically save the last 2 minutes of gameplay so if something cool happens (or someone is messing with your world) you just press Windows + ALT + G.

    I would love to see a feature in Minecraft that would allow students to record a short video clip.

    A feature to record inside of Minecraft, as part of the portfolio feature, would be amazing. Right now I have kids use Screenflow.  I own the full version but with a free trial copy, you still get full functionality. https://www.telestream.net/screenflow/ 

    With my music projects, you can then add your own soundtrack or edit the footage with voice-over. Alternatively, you can use ExplainEverything on the iPad to edit Minecraft Pocket edition screen-videos. Have fun!

    Hey there. I have tried everything, including the PPT Recording (which was much better) but the video is still incredibly laggy and choppy. Is there a setting somewhere I can disable or enable hardware acceleration for the computer or something?

    Hi All,

    The Game Bar in Win10 seems to be inconsistent in some versions. I am starting get a message "this game does not allow recording" when trying to record it via Game Bar (i.e. Windows + G). I get it on both the older style Game Bar and the newer one as well. Anyone else seeing this? Is it a OS Build variation?? Anyone know?

    BTW I have used PPT screen recorder before as well. However, I do a lot of tutorials for teacher training and so bought a educator license for the Camtasia/ Snagit bundle. The video capture and post editing is great. But.. it is costly considering some options are free. I couldn't justify the costs for all students. So free options like GameBar, PPT recorder etc is what we tend to use.

    I prefer Camtasia for my own tutorial videos as well, but agree its not the most affordable option for student use.

    I find the Game Bar in Windows 10 is enough. Just press WIN + G to open it. Has some shortcuts too: WIN+ ALT + R begins recording. Can also record with the Mic on as well as a broadcast option. Handy tip for making videos, in Minecraft press F1 to hide the HUD.

    ScreenCast-O-Matic.com (free version) is a tool all children and teachers should know about. You can record computer audio as well as your commentary easily. It has a clear directory where things are stored, great editing feature (I mostly just correct the start and end of my videos) and can save directly to mp4 for upload to the web or insertion into PPT.

    But the best feature is a "Teleprompter" like function where you can script your video comments before you make a video (or the improved second draft of the video.) You can also add an improved audio track to your existing video. Many, many powers to learn and there are detailed video lessons available free as well.

    The paid version has even more features, is inexpensive and keeps improving.

    Like Chris, I would use Camtasia. The free options are good too. I have tried Bandicam before. Great to use as part of an innovative assessment to track students thoughts as they solve problems through the game. Great for student engagement.

    Hi Chris. Did you solve the problem?  I use Joyoshare Screen Recorder. It is compatible with Mac and Windows. I use it to record online tutorials without lag. I like the preset-recording-time function. Also, I can save the recordings in MP4, MOV formats, so that I can replay the online courses on my phone when I am taking a bus. You can have a try https://www.joyoshare.com/screen-recorder-for-win/
