Create Tutorials And Demonstrate Online Workflows With The iPhone Screen Recording Feature
Building tutorials and step-by-step descriptions can be a time-consuming task for content producers. Screen Recording is one solution that enables a visual experience for your viewers.
Screen Recording is a feature that you can activate within your iPhone’s Control Center Settings.
You can find the step-by-step to set up Screen Recording HERE.
A couple of important items to note:
1) Ensure your microphone is turned on before you begin recording. (You can see how to do that in the instructions at the link above), and
2) You will not be able to use the Screen Record feature if your iPhone is in Low Battery Mode (20% or less charged).
What are some of the common uses of the Screen Recording feature for Content Creators and Marketers?
Trainers/Instructors can create conversational step-by-step tutorials to build online courses, to add to social media content, or blogs (see what I did there?).
Consultants can use the screen record feature to communicate digital solutions and identify inefficiencies to clients and customers remotely.
Similarly, clients can provide specific examples of a digital process that is challenging them using the Screen Recording feature. (For example: When using an application, a client can work through each step until they come to an error notification. Recording the screen allows the consultant or tech support pro to see exactly where the issue occurs, and what led up to it.)
Technical Support professionals use the Screen Recording Feature to see the workflow of a user to aid troubleshooting, and to identify errors in the online process.
In the video below, you’ll find a talk-through of the Screen Recording Feature to demonstrate the process of switching Instagram Accounts by Type: Business, Personal, & Creator.
Below, I used the Screen Recording Feature to record a quick video tutorial for a Facebook Group that I Co-Administer to answer a Group Member’s question about how to update settings to see more of a Facebook Page’s Posts.
Do you use a Screen Recording feature regularly in your tutorials and client interactions? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts on this feature and creative ways to leverage it. And, if you use a different service to capture online processes, feel free to share!
