OBS - A Free Tool for Online Delivery of Classes

Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) offers a useful option for our lecturers and tutors at Bucks, who are switching to online delivery of our courses. OBS is easy to install and completely free to use, for Windows and Mac devices.

About OBS
OBS is a free and open-source recording program maintained by the OBS Project. There are versions of OBS available for Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. It's a useful piece of software, with the great advantage of being free.

Beginner's Guide
To see how to use OBS Studio, watch the easy-to-follow video above. Start in the Sources box, select the + sign, and then go to "Display Capture". Make sure that "make source visible" is checked.

Best of all OBS now has a pause button, which means you can pause in mid-recording to make a cup of tea or answer the front door.

Online Teaching at Bucks Continues
In these uncertain times it's important to remember that we have many online resources at Bucks New Uni, lots of ways of supporting our students who are currently working from home.

Working from home
As long as you have a laptop and a decent broadband connection, our students can continue to work remotely, following tutorials, working on projects and also working in teams on platforms such as Facebook and Slack.

Our Online MA in 3D Animation already offers feedback and support to all our students via email, online classrooms, bespoke video feedback, and through our online learning resources with our partner school Animation Apprentice.

For more on the experience of studying at Bucks New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days,  take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK.
