Tech Tips

Recording Your Desktop


All computers come with a built-in screenshot tool, but many SCRED staff use the Skitch program on their Macbooks because it's the perfect blend of simple + useful. 



Some of our staff have access to paid software for screen recording because they need advanced features (e.g., blurring portions of the screen) to make training videos.

But did you know that you can record your screen using the programs that come with your computer? Most SCREDsters use Macbooks, and you can easily use the QuickTime program on your Mac to record your screen.

If you'd like to see your video on SCRED's YouTube channel, find out how.



Sign PDFs On Your Computer

Instead of printing off a document, signing it, and scanning it back into your computer, you can simply sign it using your computer. How? You can easily keep a copy of your signature in the Preview program on your Macbook and use it to easily sign any PDF file. It's as easy as signing a blank piece of paper and holding it up to your webcame one time. Find out how.
