Edit a video: Audio Notes and Audio Tracks

Studies show students pay more attention to content if they hear it from a familiar voice. Therefore we highly recommend recording a simple introduction or comment to your video to engage your students even more.

Here are two ways to add audio to your video-lesson:

 

How to record an Audio Note

Note: if you just recorded the audio-note, you will be prompted with the "Remove all new audio-notes" and "Remove the last note" buttons at the bottom of the video. The first button will remove all the audio notes with a "New" tag over them, and the second one will remove the last one you just recorded.
