    Online classes are drawing the attention of many people, especially the students across the globe. The rising popularity of the online education culture ows to the following pros associated with the same:

    • The flexibility of the culture.
    • Networking.
    • Better interaction between student and instructor.
    • Access to expertise.

    Imagine you’re attending an online class and your network suffers a sudden disruption because of, say the bad climate. But what if the instructor on the other side of your screen is recording the entire lecture and you could access the recorded video as and when required. 

    Sounds great, right?

    Screen Recording is a process of sharing a captured screen or video recording . It involves sharing different content running on your computer screen.

    But the real question is, how do we record our computer screen?

    One way could be recording the entire screen with your mobile phone, but it’s quite evident from the quality of the recorded video that this is definitely not a great way to perform this task.

    Well, a Screen Recorder does the above task accurately.

    A screen recorder app allows you to save any content on your screen. Modern versions of screen recording tools encapsulate screen recorders with internal audio for a plethora of uses.

    Following are the advantages of Recording your screen:

    1. Allows you to save any content (Video calls from Skype, Google hangouts or other platforms, online streaming videos, content from social media) running on your screen for future references.
    2. Easy way to explain the issues and solutions related to nearly every matter in the digital circle.
    3. Allows you to create a wide range of content- We’re all familiar with the tutorial or how-to videos on youtube where the instructor is explaining to us how to perform a certain task, say installation and using an app by sharing his laptop screen. These content are easy to create and have a wide reach because they’re easy to understand as compared to the written content on the Internet.
