COE Video Creation


You do not have to use the microphone. It depends on your classroom situation and noise level. If you do use the microphone, you must do the set-up and test immediately before filming. Do not turn off the iPad or the microphone before filming or you will need to do the set-up procedure again.

Practice often with the microphone before it really counts. If the microphone is not properly functioning, you will have no sound for the video. This cannot be reversed.
