Approximately 35 million PowerPoint presentations are given worldwide every day. People use PowerPoint screen recording for different purposes. PowerPoint makes it easier for a person to communicate with a larger group of people in a compact yet detailed way. It not only makes a presentation eye-catching but also helps in explaining things better. 

Whether you are a student or a teacher, a business person, or work in a corporate firm, PowerPoint presentations will always be relevant. Depending upon your requirement, you can make presentations for business or sale purposes as well as product demos. You can also make PowerPoint slides for training and tutorials, executive communications, educational lectures, and assignments. 

PowerPoint presentations have been a major part of our lives for quite some time. However, since the COVID pandemic has hit us, the world has gone virtual, and our needs have evolved. We now not only need to make presentations but also to record them. 

So, in this article, we will discuss the best way to record a PowerPoint presentation.  

Different Methods to Record PowerPoint Presentation

Sometimes, you may need to record a presentation that you are giving live or maybe you may need to record a presentation beforehand. There are multiple ways to record your PowerPoint presentations depending upon your requirement. Here we will list two ways:

Screen Recording in PowerPoint:

PowerPoint also has a built-in screen recording feature, where you can record audio as well as your screen. This way you can switch between different applications and communicate more efficiently. For example, if you are a teacher and you want to show the students a video on YouTube, it can be recorded with the help of this feature and then added on the slide of your choice. 

Third-Party Apps:

Another way of recording your presentation is by using third-party apps such as QuickTime Player, Flashback, Camtasia, Wondershare DemoCreator, etc. This software allows you to record your screen as well as your video via webcam.
