Instructors choose the ideal topics/portions of their in-class lectures for recording (5- 25 minutes are ideal) With 20 minutes of training on the Swivl instructors are ready to go Videos are recorded locally on to the iPad and can be shared directly to YouTube, saved to the gallery, or uploaded to cloud- based video storage
Instructors set up the Swivl in class Record the segments live in front of students Send them to Kaltura, YouTube, or other cloud video host Add to Blackboard Courses
