Creating Videos with SOM (3-26-2020) - Shared screen with speaker view
You are welcome!
can we just go to the Control Panel to delete SOM?
What if we’re using a Cal Poly machine and we’re not able to install new software on our workstation unless it’s in Cal Poly’s “Self Service” portal? It don’t see SOM on there…
SOM is listed as external tool within Canvas, can students access the software (free version) from there? Or should they still jump on the website and download from there?
You can set a virtual background. On the Mac, see preferences.
Is SOM available in polylearn
Hi Pam, what is the name of the app we need to delete if we signed up for a 30 day trial?
You can always link in PolyLearn, but I will check. Here is info for Canvas: https://canvassupport.calpoly.edu/screencast-o-matic
The screencast-omatic link is on the CTLT site - easy to click and get into through portal
CTLT Screencast-O-Matic: https://ctlt.calpoly.edu/instructional-continuity-screencast-o-matic
Pam, re: installing… What if we’re using a Cal Poly machine and we’re not able to install new software on our workstation unless it’s in Cal Poly’s “Self Service” portal? It don’t see SOM on there…
it is asking for an "access URL" in "team plan"
afoxen: You can ask at the end. If you leave early, I will save your question and ask Luanne and we will get back to you!
Anelise: We can check!
Once you download it is gives 3 options "I have a SOLO PLAN" "I have a EAM PLAN" or "Launch FREE Recorder?
which option to choose?
Me too, What is the right choice?
For Cal Poly I think it’s the free plan. I will ask at end.
the FREE version does NOT allow you to EDIT!!
Yes, you can edit with free.
Just not all of the robust editing features
I am looking at it right now... and it saying that I need to upgrade to be able to edit
I tried that, I’m not sure it gave me the editing options
This is what is written when I try to edit "click this link to upgrade and unlock editing features"
Is that engagement time (4min) with both live and pre-recorded lectures?
Good question Jerusha. Depends. On your course, your students, your content
Main message is focused instruction
And chunking info
Why is it OK for this presentation to be 1-1/2 hours, but for students it has to be less than 5 minutes?
Screencast-O-Matic tutorials: https://screencast-o-matic.com/tutorials
Kim: This is live. Screencast-O-Matic is for recorded
If you record lectures, recording in chunks is easier for attention and processing information
So you can record segments of your lecture, so it’s easier for your students to revisit info
Also, you can create short instructional videos for course navigation, highlighting concepts, demo of a process, etc...
Mine says needs admin access with a password
jpackard: We are checking on this!
If you plug in a iPhone headset for example, do you have to choose a different mic or does SOM do it automatically?
Beverly, always check your mic, sometimes it does not select the one you plug in
Can you edit the Web Cam frame so closer in - or stuck with how it was originally videoed?
Can you record a video in Zoom and edit with Screen-o-matic?
Thomas: Not free version, but you can with upgraded version, which is still very low-cost
mstankus: Not sure. I know you can edit ZOOM video in Camtasia. I will ask Luanne
So yes, @mstankus, you can!
Can you explain the difference of recording here vs zoom please?
Marni: ZOOM for live lectures; Screencast-O-Matic for recording lectures, or recordings demos, etc..
Also this does captions and zoom doesn't?
Marni: Both do auto captions that you have to correct.
Will this voice to text work with an imported video too?
Thomas, will check on this, but I believe so
where do you access the editing capability in captioning?
Could we do recording with screencast without internet (offline)?
Edit Offline: https://screencast-o-matic.com/blog/how-to-edit-videos/
will captions stay if we send it to dropbox
Can you change the frame rate is SOA?
Captions WILL NOT stay on MP4 or dropbox, you need to upload to hosting site. Will NOT save on YouTube, will save on the screencast-o-matic site
If you upload to YouTube, use YouTube auto-captions, not SOM captions
apologies if this was already covered (had to join late) - Is Youtube or SOM better for automatic captioning?
All hosting sites, such as Screencast.com; YouTube, Vimeo, etc… have private sharing options
SOM is fine if you are using their hosting site. YouTube uses the same speech recognition from Google
Both use same speech recognition
How much storage space do we have on SOM?
I got a message saying failed to encode try to disablingantivirus
@Jpackarvd: I will check
Better ? will we run into storage issues onSOM
Canvas SOM Plugin: https://canvassupport.calpoly.edu/screencast-o-matic
Canvas only or can it be linkedto polylearn?
Jpackarvd: You can upload to YouTube as well with “unlisted” option. Create channel for separate classes
Can be linked in PolyLearn
If you use the Canvas SOM plugin, does that take more space in your Canvas course instead of just a link?
No, does not take space. SOM in cloud
Tammy Martin (she, her, hers)
How do you go back in and Copy the Link?
how can we link to polylearn?
Just select the video and copy the URL. Did you just see her sharing options?
Options for sharing in various ways
Yes, click on link to share in course
Tammy Martin (she, her, hers)
Thank you Luanne and Pam!
when will this recording be shared?
Thanks Luanne and Pam
You can rename your old one so that you can keep it.
This is the message that comes up after I download the program
Some of the computer people are on campus. Any they can access your work machine remotely.
we are going through the CP way
I can install software and i am in CSM. Phone number 805-756-6622. Great people!
I deleted the old one ad reloaded per your directions and this still came up
I did that too
Oh, I’ll empty the trash :)
I tried to publish to SOM or to video and Im getting the same message : failed to encode. try to disable anti-virus
I never had an earlier version, and I am getting the same message about choosing the plan
you guys should tell the professors to NOT delete their account because we are stuck now!
Thanks Luanne and Pam
I got SOM downloaded but it is showing admin access needed for record computer sounds
I muted myself
Which plan should we pick, a solo plan, a team plan, or a free recorder?
Those options should not be showing if you go through the Cal Poly site.
but they are showing.
Yes, they are showing through the CP site
the benefit is that you can work OFFLINE
Is there any way to upload the Zoom recording file into SOM for editing…instead of replaying the Zoom recording to capture into SOM?
We will test and get back to everyone. Not sure which to choose.
Percentage and Online copywrite rules?
I am having trouble with the SOM app in Canvas. It keeps asking me to login to my account. Then popping me out to the calpoly SOM site outside of canvas. So I can't actually in bed a video.
If you are on a Mac, there maybe files related to SOM which are not in the applications folder. Use spotlight to search from Screen-o-matic.
I followed your directions and signed out and signed back in and seems to have worked :)
Sara: Did you access first from the Cal Poly site first? https://screencast-o-matic.com/calpoly
Sign out. Then sign back in with Cal Poly. For a fix. Hopefully will work.
Yes Pam, I am logged in through Calpoly. And I can access the program normally.
Sara: OK, great!
Sara: But issues with Canvas plug-in?
Its the integration with Canvas that seems to have a problem
Dr. Luanne Fose
It asks me to log in again. :(
where can we ask general questions about zoom or screencastomatic
Dahlia: Luanne Fose at email@example.com. Or contact their support site. ZOOM support: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us, SOM Support: https://support.screencast-o-matic.com/hc/en-us
It would be great if all faculty get the communication!
Thanks for all your hard work
Hi, I m still getting failed to encode when I try to publish
I think it's a diff between webinars and meetings
Thanks very much Luanne + everyone at CTLT! This webinar was very clear for a 1st time SOM user [never opened the software before]…looking forward to using it!
Thanks for attending everyone! We will do our best to answer your questions and help Cal Poly work out the kinks for your various computers and settings.
I have a question for zoom if you still have time. Can I share a document camera and a powerpoint at the same time?
Dahlia: I believe so. You can do a test.
can you please show how to access the old videos in the old account?
Another question for zoom please:if I want to connect my ipad to zoom is it the same usual cable used for charging
Yes, I link to my iPad in ZOOM!
You can use iPad app only or link with doc to your computer to use both
Link with dock
Thank you Luanne and Pam!
Can share screen with one or other, not both at same time
Zoom has a limit of 300 participants.
thanks pam, link with dock?
Have a great day everyone! Thank you for attending
Thank you Pam and Luanne
