Sometimes, screenshots are not enough when you want to share something. Do you feel like you have to share more than just a picture? Screen recorders let you do just that. As the name suggests, it helps to record and capture what’s on your screen; some even have the option to record audio as well.
With the right screen recording software, you can record on both smartphones and laptops. You can record any video, presentation, games, or even create your own! Movavi, for instance, is a great choice and helps you capture online videos, download videos from websites or record program activity in just a single click.
If you have a screen recorder and you are confused about how to use it, here are the top seven reasons to use it:
- To create and save online classes:
If you’re enrolled in online college or perhaps you are the person who likes to attend webinars and workshops, then you know they are mostly live-streamed which means that if you missed it, then you missed it. To tackle this problem, you can simply record your screen and then watch it whenever you want; you can pause it and replay it at your own pace.
2) Show your gaming skills to the world

3)To make How-To tutorials
You can create a how-to tutorial, provide a step-by-step guide; especially when it comes to software or apps. Suppose you want to tell your students how to use MLA seventh edition properly to write a research paper. You can provide a detailed tutorial on a word document.
You can also record your PowerPoint presentations while explaining each slide and send it to anyone, anywhere.
4)To make memes or gifs
Memes speak louder than words. People interact more by sharing memes or funny gifs. I have come across many moments while watching a video which I thought were meme-worthy. If you think the same, then you too can record your screen, add text, add multiple effects and share it as a meme or gif, adding your value creation to the ever-growing treasures of social media.
5) To give feedbacks
Screen recording is really beneficial for the professors or professionals on the go. You don’t have to write notes or emails instead you can review any document whether be it an image, a word document or even a presentation from anywhere and hassle-free.
It will also lessen the miscommunication as you can mark the problem area or highlight that specific point about which you are talking.
6) To showcase any software problem
I feel at a loss of words when I have to explain a technical problem because I just can’t describe what exactly went wrong or how. Now, this is a perfect example of when to use screen recording. Suppose there is a problem with the software/app or a glitch is happening in your device, instead of just telling, you can show it to the professionals.
It will also come in handy in your work life if you are in the IT sector or an app creator. You can record and share the problem with your whole team.
7) To record conference calls or meeting
Today, a lot of meetings take place via video calling where multiple people from different locations chime in together and it’s obvious that you won’t be able to listen to everyone at the same time. Also, you too have to participate in the discussion. So an easy solution is to record your meetings so you can be carefree and focus on your meeting instead because you can take the important keynotes later.
- For Webinars
Webinars coined by combining the words ‘web’ and ‘seminar’ is a seminar or presentation made through the internet. It may be given to you by your superiors in the company you work for. We all know how boring certain seminars can be; this can reduce your attention spans causing you to miss out important points or directions given to you. Using a screen recorder will save you from getting fired as you could always review the webinar later to check for any information you might have missed.
- To Help Report Bugs
You just purchased an app recently, but when you tried to run it, you encounter a bug which causes the app to malfunction or force close. When reporting it to the developers, send a video of what happens when you open the app rather than typing it in words. The developers will thank you for this as it is easier for them to understand the issue you are facing thereby helping you quicker.
- For Tutors
Tutors or professors can make use of a screen recorder to communicate with their student efficiently. They can easily review their student’s projects or articles using a screen recorder to review the entire article in a single stretch. This is easier for the students to understand clearly and thus communication becomes effective.
