Make a Presentation and add a voiceover to it on your iPad

Let’s say you need to create a slideshow, then add some audio that plays with the slides, and output it as a Movie.

Here’s one way to do that.

Create the slides using Google Slides or Keynote

Record your screen.

Call up the slides. Start the presentation. Record your audio while advancing the slides at the right time.

Once done, press the record button on the top right [or call up Control Center and stop the recording there].

Then you can edit your creation in iMovie – don’t forget to make the audio louder!

Record your screen

  1. Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls, then tap  next to Screen Recording. [That’s to make sure the button in step 2 is there]
  2. Swipe down from the top right edge
  3. Press and hold on  and tap Microphone. Make sure the microphone is set to ON.
  4. Tap Start Recording, then wait for the three-second countdown. 
  5. Open Control Center and tap . Or tap the red status bar at the top of your screen and tap Stop.

The file is stashed in your Photos.

Keynote: How to present student keynotes in classroom

Some ideas and possibilities for showing student created Keynote in class:

Option 1:

Use dongle to connect iPad to projector.

Option 2:

  • Students export their Keynote as a Powerpoint
  • They either email them to you OR stash them on Drive and share the file with you
  • You open the file in Powerpoint and hit play OR
  • You also MIGHT be able to just open it by clicking on the file while in Google Drive – it just might play in the browser window.

Option 3:

  • Kids export their Keynote to iCloud.
  • On your laptop, open a new web browser window, and surf to icloud.com.
  • They login with their AppleID and password [should be their Moodle password, some might have 1871 added to the end].
  • They can play their Keynote presentation inside the web browser window.

Option 4:

If there is not a need for animation:

  • Students export the keynote as a PDF.
  • They email it to you OR stash in Google Drive.
  • You open it up on the laptop, and just display the PDF file.
