More information including screenshots are available in the Lecture123 User Manual. Another excellent resource is the Getting Started FAQ.
Prepare Your Source Content
You can present PowerPoint slides in your recording session. This makes it easy for you to use the authoring tools you are familiar with and also incorporate digital assets from other sources, e.g. textbook publishers, screenshots, images, etc. At any time during the recording session you can insert a blank slide to enhance your presentation with a digital whiteboard. You may also choose to record whiteboard only sessions.
Launch the Presenter
The Presenter can be launched via the icon on your computer desktop (this is created when you install the Lecture123 software). You may also launch the Presenter by logging into the Lecture123 web site, clicking on the Record shortcut in the blue toolbar up top, and then clicking on the Presenter link on that web page.
Selecting a PowerPoint or Whiteboard Session
Once the Presenter program is started (as per instructions above) simply click on on the Start button. You may then choose to start a PowerPoint or Whiteboard session (converted slideset is an advanced feature seldom used). If you select PowerPoint, then navigate to your file and click Next. (Note: the first time you open a specific PowerPoint file it will be converted to an open format called SVG). You are now ready to start your recording session.
Presenting/Recording Your Session
You may now click Start Recording.
Publishing Your Session
Now that you have completed your recording session you can publish your session. If you are short on time, select Publish Later, click Next, and exit the Presenter. Here are the instructions to publish later.
