Creating Video in Digital Storytelling

One of the most important decisions you will make as you create your video is what video editing tools to use. Screen recording video tools allow you to record and edit your computer screen, which is valuable for walkthroughs and filming PowerPoint videos.


If you intend to use a video camera or phone to film parts of your video, you can use the resources available at PSU to borrow a videocamera or lighting equipment, and reserve space in one of our studios, including the One Button Studios, which are designed to provide everything you need to record a video in place.
