You can record lessons as a teacher (from the 3rd-person and teacher points of view):

  1. For Mac:
    1. Open the Immerse Desktop Application.
    2. Click “Shift + Command + 5.”
    3. Set the screen you wish to record, and open the “Options” tab to choose a location to save the recording on your computer and to set the audio recording.
    4. Click "Record."
    5. Proceed with lesson.
    6. At the end of the desired recording, click “Shift” + “Command” + “5” again, and click the stop button.

  2. For PC, you will need to find out how to screen record on your specific model. You may need to download a screen recording application. If this is not ideal for you, follow these steps to use Zoom to record.:
    1. Open the Immerse application.
    2. Then open the Zoom application.
    3. Start a Zoom meeting (with no one present).
    4. Initiate a “Screen Share” of your own screen, and choose the Immerse App Window.
    5. Make sure your Zoom recording settings allow for audio to be recorded.
    6. Now record the “Zoom call with the screen share."
    7. Proceed with the lesson on the Immerse application.
    8. When complete, switch back to Zoom and end the recording.
    9. End the Zoom call.
    10. Your recording will be saved to your computer for playback.
