Choosing a good platform for recording a webinar can be difficult. But it’s worth the effort. By offering your recordings as on-demand webinars, you can expand your reach, deliver value and generate leads long after the live event has ended. In GoToWebinar, recording a webinar is quick and simple. Here’s what you need to do as the presenter to record your webinar.
Setting up your webinar recordings
Before the webinar begins, you can easily manage how and where GoToWebinar records your webinars:
Sign in to GoToWebinar. Don’t have an account? Start a free trial. Next, select Settings in the menu and then click on the Recording tab.
2. Enable auto-recording.
If you’d like recording to start automatically when you begin the webinar broadcast, select On under the “Auto-record” section. (If you want auto-recording on specific webinars only, head to the Manage Webinar page and click Edit under the “Auto-record” section.)
Choose the “My Recordings” option to automatically save your recordings to your online account in the My Recordings page. Or, choose the “raw file” option if you prefer to save your recorded sessions on your local hard drive.
4. Add webcams to recordings.
Check the Include webcams in the recording box if you’d like to capture the shared webcams in addition to the screen-sharing content and audio. Note that this option is only available for online recordings. It also increases the file size. Select Save.
How to start a webinar recording in session
In case you decide to leave automatic recording off, here’s how to do it manually:
While in session, start the broadcast and share your screen.
Step 2. Set up your recording.
GoToWebinar has recording abilities built in so there is no need to download an external screen recorder. Simply click Start Recording (Windows) or Record (Mac) at the bottom of the Screen Sharing pane. This will begin the recording of your screen. If you’re recording locally, you’ll need at least 5 GB of available hard drive space.
When you’re finished, select Stop Recording in the Screen Sharing pane. It is that easy!
Step 4. Convert your files if needed.
If you’re using local recording instead of online recording, convert the file using the Recording Manager after the session ends.
Easy-to-use interface for hosting webinars
GoToWebinar makes managing webinars simple so you can focus on nailing your presentation.
All you need to do is fill out a form. Once you’ve entered your webinar’s details, GoToWebinar will create a registration page and an invitation email that you can use to get people signed up.
Hosting a webinar is easier than you think. You can present from your computer just as if you were actually there in the room with everyone else. Engage with attendees through Q&A, HD video conferencing, surveys, polls and more.
The ease of GoToWebinar allows you to deliver engaging webinars frequently. That means you can get your message out to bigger audiences, resulting a greater return on investment.
