How can I record myself in the Presentation Room?
All Information Commons computers (including the presentation room computers) have a software that wipes all documents on reboot (DeepFreeze software).
Please save all work to an external source like Google Drive or flash drive. Video files may be too large to save to email.

If you would like to convert the .wmv file:
Handbrake, a video converting software, is available on this computer (icon looks like a pineapple). You can convert videos into .mp4, .mkv, or .mov files.
On the Mac side of the computers in Information Commons, you can also save your file "save as" .mov to convert it.
Please note: converting your video file will take some time and may increase the size of the file.
