How to Create Simple Videos on a Chromebook - No Apps or Extensions Needed

One of my colleagues asked me if I could provide directions on how to create a video on our school-issued Chromebooks. I was happy to oblige and created one specifically for our school. I then created a second one that can be used by anyone who has a Chromebook and is looking for a quick and easy to create a video without having to install any Chrome extensions or Chrome apps.

In the following video I demonstrate how to create a simple video on a Chromebook. The key points of the video are:
  • How to access the camera on your Chromebook. 
  • Where to find your video file. 
  • How to share your video file with students. 

Many people asked if I could provide screenshots of the process. I put together a set in the slides that are embedded below.
