You are welcome!
Anelise Sabbag

can we just go to the Control Panel to delete SOM?
afoxen
19:22
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…
Yan Shan
20:45
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?
mstankus
21:05
You can set a virtual background. On the Mac, see preferences.
Dahlia Hafez
21:37
Is SOM available in polylearn
Jerusha Greenwood
22:45
Hi Pam!
Pam Dougherty
23:08
Hi Jerusha!
Kim Shollenberger
23:29
Hi Pam, what is the name of the app we need to delete if we signed up for a 30 day trial?
Pam Dougherty
23:56
You can always link in PolyLearn, but I will check. Here is info for Canvas: https://canvassupport.calpoly.edu/screencast-o-matic
Natasha Neumann
24:18
The screencast-omatic link is on the CTLT site - easy to click and get into through portal
Pam Dougherty

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…
Anelise Sabbag
35:04
it is asking for an "access URL" in "team plan"
Pam Dougherty
35:12
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!
Pam Dougherty
35:27
Anelise: We can check!
afoxen
35:34
Ok, thanks.
Anelise Sabbag
37:03
Once you download it is gives 3 options "I have a SOLO PLAN" "I have a EAM PLAN" or "Launch FREE Recorder?
Anelise Sabbag
37:12
which option to choose?
David Watts
37:28
Me too, What is the right choice?
Pam Dougherty
38:26
For Cal Poly I think it’s the free plan. I will ask at end.
Anelise Sabbag
40:23
the FREE version does NOT allow you to EDIT!!
Pam Dougherty
40:44
Yes, you can edit with free.
Pam Dougherty
40:58
Just not all of the robust editing features
Anelise Sabbag
41:06
I am looking at it right now... and it saying that I need to upgrade to be able to edit
David Watts
41:32
I tried that, I’m not sure it gave me the editing options
Anelise Sabbag
42:58
This is what is written when I try to edit "click this link to upgrade and unlock editing features"
Jerusha Greenwood
43:34
Is that engagement time (4min) with both live and pre-recorded lectures?
Pam Dougherty
45:00
Good question Jerusha. Depends. On your course, your students, your content
Pam Dougherty
45:37
Main message is focused instruction
Pam Dougherty
45:45
And chunking info
Kim Shollenberger
48:38
Why is it OK for this presentation to be 1-1/2 hours, but for students it has to be less than 5 minutes?
Pam Dougherty
49:17
Screencast-O-Matic tutorials: https://screencast-o-matic.com/tutorials
Pam Dougherty
50:13
Kim: This is live. Screencast-O-Matic is for recorded
Pam Dougherty
50:32
If you record lectures, recording in chunks is easier for attention and processing information
Pam Dougherty
50:51
So you can record segments of your lecture, so it’s easier for your students to revisit info
Pam Dougherty
51:15
Also, you can create short instructional videos for course navigation, highlighting concepts, demo of a process, etc...
jpackard
51:21
Mine says needs admin access with a password
Pam Dougherty
51:42
jpackard: We are checking on this!
Beverly Bass
53:04
If you plug in a iPhone headset for example, do you have to choose a different mic or does SOM do it automatically?
Pam Dougherty
54:20
Beverly, always check your mic, sometimes it does not select the one you plug in
Thomas Fowler
01:03:53
Can you edit the Web Cam frame so closer in - or stuck with how it was originally videoed?
mstankus
01:05:20
Can you record a video in Zoom and edit with Screen-o-matic?
Pam Dougherty
01:05:56
Thomas: Not free version, but you can with upgraded version, which is still very low-cost
Pam Dougherty
01:06:29
mstankus: Not sure. I know you can edit ZOOM video in Camtasia. I will ask Luanne
Pam Dougherty
01:08:14
So yes, @mstankus, you can!
Pam Dougherty
01:08:25
Upload MP4
Marni Goldenberg
01:13:09
Can you explain the difference of recording here vs zoom please?
Pam Dougherty
01:14:05
Marni: ZOOM for live lectures; Screencast-O-Matic for recording lectures, or recordings demos, etc..
Marni Goldenberg
01:15:44
Also this does captions and zoom doesn't?
Pam Dougherty
01:16:02
Marni: Both do auto captions that you have to correct.
Thomas Fowler
01:16:58
Will this voice to text work with an imported video too?
Pam Dougherty
01:17:29
Thomas, will check on this, but I believe so
Meredith Sattler
01:18:34
where do you access the editing capability in captioning?
John Pan
01:19:14
Could we do recording with screencast without internet (offline)?
Pam Dougherty
01:19:29
Meredith: https://screencast-o-matic.com/blog/accessible-video/
Meredith Sattler
01:19:49
thanks!
Pam Dougherty
01:20:10
Edit Offline: https://screencast-o-matic.com/blog/how-to-edit-videos/
David Watts
01:20:15
will captions stay if we send it to dropbox
mstankus
01:20:44
Can you change the frame rate is SOA?
Pam Dougherty
01:20:57
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
Pam Dougherty
01:21:15
If you upload to YouTube, use YouTube auto-captions, not SOM captions
Kelly Bennion
01:21:44
apologies if this was already covered (had to join late) - Is Youtube or SOM better for automatic captioning?
Pam Dougherty
01:21:49
All hosting sites, such as Screencast.com; YouTube, Vimeo, etc… have private sharing options
Pam Dougherty
01:22:14
SOM is fine if you are using their hosting site. YouTube uses the same speech recognition from Google
Pam Dougherty
01:22:35
Both use same speech recognition
jpackard
01:22:53
How much storage space do we have on SOM?
Dahlia Hafez
01:22:58
I got a message saying failed to encode try to disablingantivirus
Pam Dougherty
01:23:46
@Jpackarvd: I will check
jpackard
01:23:47
Better ? will we run into storage issues onSOM
Pam Dougherty
01:24:25
Canvas SOM Plugin: https://canvassupport.calpoly.edu/screencast-o-matic
Dahlia Hafez
01:25:01
Canvas only or can it be linkedto polylearn?
Pam Dougherty
01:25:06
Jpackarvd: You can upload to YouTube as well with “unlisted” option. Create channel for separate classes
Pam Dougherty
01:25:24
Can be linked in PolyLearn
Elena Keeling
01:25:27
If you use the Canvas SOM plugin, does that take more space in your Canvas course instead of just a link?
Pam Dougherty
01:25:38
No, does not take space. SOM in cloud
Tammy Martin (she, her, hers)
01:25:41
How do you go back in and Copy the Link?
Dahlia Hafez
01:25:49
how can we link to polylearn?
Pam Dougherty
01:26:14
Just select the video and copy the URL. Did you just see her sharing options?
Pam Dougherty
01:26:29
Options for sharing in various ways
Dahlia Hafez
01:26:36
ok thanks
Pam Dougherty
01:27:11
Yes, click on link to share in course
Tammy Martin (she, her, hers)
01:28:56
Thank you Luanne and Pam!
Roberta Wolfson
01:29:02
when will this recording be shared?
Jerusha Greenwood
01:30:01
Thanks Luanne and Pam
mstankus
01:30:10
You can rename your old one so that you can keep it.
David Watts
01:30:44
This is the message that comes up after I download the program
jpackard
01:31:05
CSM
mstankus
01:31:26
Some of the computer people are on campus. Any they can access your work machine remotely.
Anelise Sabbag
01:32:14
we are going through the CP way
mstankus
01:32:17
I can install software and i am in CSM. Phone number 805-756-6622. Great people!
David Watts
01:32:27
I deleted the old one ad reloaded per your directions and this still came up
David Watts
01:32:35
Did that
Anelise Sabbag
01:32:43
I did that too
David Watts
01:32:50
Oh, I’ll empty the trash :)
Dahlia Hafez
01:33:06
I tried to publish to SOM or to video and Im getting the same message : failed to encode. try to disable anti-virus
Elena Keeling
01:33:14
I never had an earlier version, and I am getting the same message about choosing the plan
Anelise Sabbag
01:33:42
you guys should tell the professors to NOT delete their account because we are stuck now!
Marni Goldenberg
01:34:00
Thanks Luanne and Pam
jpackard
01:34:47
I got SOM downloaded but it is showing admin access needed for record computer sounds
Pam Dougherty
01:36:02
I muted myself
John Pan
01:36:06
Which plan should we pick, a solo plan, a team plan, or a free recorder?
Pam Dougherty
01:37:54
Those options should not be showing if you go through the Cal Poly site.
Anelise Sabbag
01:38:21
but they are showing.
Elena Keeling
01:39:20
Yes, they are showing through the CP site
Anelise Sabbag
01:41:31
the benefit is that you can work OFFLINE
Meredith Sattler
01:46:25
Is there any way to upload the Zoom recording file into SOM for editing…instead of replaying the Zoom recording to capture into SOM?
Pam Dougherty
01:46:44
We will test and get back to everyone. Not sure which to choose.
mstankus
01:46:44
Percentage and Online copywrite rules?
Sara Kuwahara
01:48:04
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.
mstankus
01:49:10
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.
David Watts
01:50:05
I followed your directions and signed out and signed back in and seems to have worked :)
Pam Dougherty
01:51:01
Sara: Did you access first from the Cal Poly site first? https://screencast-o-matic.com/calpoly
Pam Dougherty
01:51:13
Yay David!!!!
Pam Dougherty
01:51:36
Sign out. Then sign back in with Cal Poly. For a fix. Hopefully will work.
Sara Kuwahara
01:51:49
Yes Pam, I am logged in through Calpoly. And I can access the program normally.
Pam Dougherty
01:52:05
Sara: OK, great!
Pam Dougherty
01:52:30
Sara: But issues with Canvas plug-in?
Sara Kuwahara
01:52:35
Its the integration with Canvas that seems to have a problem
Dr. Luanne Fose
01:52:45
http://calendly.com/lfose
Sara Kuwahara
01:52:52
It asks me to log in again. :(
Dahlia Hafez
01:53:21
where can we ask general questions about zoom or screencastomatic
Pam Dougherty
01:54:36
Dahlia: Luanne Fose at lfose@calpoly.edu. 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
Pam Dougherty
01:55:53
It would be great if all faculty get the communication!
Pam Dougherty
01:55:59
From ITS
jpackard
01:57:37
Thanks for all your hard work
Dahlia Hafez
01:58:12
Hi, I m still getting failed to encode when I try to publish
Alyson McLamore
01:58:54
I think it's a diff between webinars and meetings
Meredith Sattler
02:00:11
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!
Pam Dougherty
02:01:31
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.
Dahlia Hafez
02:01:44
I have a question for zoom if you still have time. Can I share a document camera and a powerpoint at the same time?
Pam Dougherty
02:02:02
Dahlia: I believe so. You can do a test.
Alyson McLamore
02:02:24
Thanks, Luanne!
Anelise Sabbag
02:02:37

Pam Dougherty
02:03:25
Yes, I link to my iPad in ZOOM!
Pam Dougherty

You can use iPad app only or link with doc to your computer to use both
Pam Dougherty
02:04:27

Sheryl Frisch
02:05:03
