How to make a video of yourself speaking:
The simplest way on any Operating System (Mac, PC, Linux)
Youtube has a tool that allows you to record yourself: My Webcam
This works on any platform. It is simple interface that allows you to record, review the recording and publish to youtube. Publishing to youtube is optional.
Other video options on a Mac
Other video options on a PC
Windows Vista has no application that allows you to video yourself using the webcam. I recommend Debut Video Capture (link to Softonic download). It is a simple interface, that also allows you to create simple videos of your screen – good for product demonstrations.
What speech will you practice today?
Record 3 minutes today. I recommend you start with “The Ice-Breaker” – This is the first speech that each new member of Toastmasters Organisation prepares. Andrew Dlugan describes how to prepare a good ice-breaker speech on his blog SixMinutes.
