thanks for such consoludation everything here.

one ask, for screen recording i tried many , i found resolution is not so great(looks somewhat blur) with freeware such as obs, quicktime... 
also the file size was much larger (even with mp4 format) 

do you suggest/any idea on above two points

Thanks @MassimilianoAlf for creating this beneficial post. I want to add the ones I know that may help our fellow instructures. You may want to add them in your list at the top of this page!

 

For photos:

https://www.videezy.com/

 

I highly recommend canva.com, even the subsrcibed service. I was in daubt first to pay for monthly subscribtion of unlimited photos, but I got much benefit afterwards. They offer very powerful online design platform as well!

 

For icons:

https://thenounproject.com/

 

Andd what's really missing here is https://www.fiverr.com/ !! By paying just 10$ more and less you can get your desgined logo, intro video and more services that makes a difference!

 

Good luck eveyone!

FreeCam (formerly iSpring Free Cam) [https://www.freescreenrecording.com/] is another free screen recorder that is simple to use. 
A little known feature on the iPhone is the integrated screen recorder. For instructors show casing mobile applications, this is a pretty remarkable feature! Instead of having to use a screen mirror application connected to you laptop or PC AND a screen recorder, now you can go right from the source!
The video is saved to your photos files on your phone and you treat it much like you would any video you recorded on your phone.
This feature may also be available on Android phones as well.

This is a useful summary of important tools but I think that it is in no way exhaustive. We indeed should keep adding whenever we come across some new tools. Thanks

This is an excellent site for music! I really like the choices, the quality and the lengths - they will be perfect when I get back into the studio (okay, my home office) and start editing. 

 

Thanks for sharing this!

As a new course creator I am spending so much time researching the best places to find resources or software and even if something works it just doesn't work for me, if that makes sense.  This list contains some that I have used and some I have never heard of so many thanks for sharing it.

If i use the music from the site that you mentioned above , will i have to give the credit to the website? or its free to use without giving credit. If need to give credit how can i mention it. I want to use it as my background music of my promo vide. Please help me out. How to do this. Thanks.

Re: A list of useful sources for instructors

With the possible exception of 100% Royalty free music, credit and recognition of authorship of the music or the website  providing it should always be properly recognized and attributed. To do so is considered plagiarism in academia and simply theft of intellectual property anywhere else.
 

Properly giving credit where it is due helps everyone and does not diminish your work product. If anything it enhances it by demonstrating your respect for the work of others...the same as you would want for yourself. 


To do less is to invite potential litigation that could result in a 'cease and desist order' and running the risk of compromising your professional integrity. Once that happens, good luck finding work with legitimate businesses, or people.
After all, how can you trust a thief?

Just put a write at the end of your video where you used the music, something that says: "Music by www.thewebsitewhereyoutookthemusic..."
