Thanks to library media coordinator, Sheila Allen, for this post about using the SWIVL robot.
SWIVL Robot turns your mobile device into an interactive video recording device.
Ready to Record
You can wear the marker on a lanyard and the SWIVL Robot will rotate to capture your movements around the room. The microphone on the marker will record your voice. To begin, select “Capture” in the SWIVL app. Press the red record button on the marker to begin recording. Press it again to stop. Maximum recording time is is in the upper corner of the screen. That is determined by the quality of your recording and the amount of storage space available on your device. Delete unwanted clips and clips you have uploaded to SWIVL Cloud for more space to record. If you can, delete apps from the device for more space.
To view your recordings, tap the hotdog menu on the top left of the mobile device. Tap “Library.” If you like the result, tap the green cloud to upload your video to the SWIVL Cloud. If you want to delete the recording, tap the clear area beside the recording. Delete is one of the options.
Find your videos on https://cloud.swivl.com
From the SWIVL Cloud, you can view your recordings, do some editing, add slides, and download the video. The video downloads as a MP4 file (Quicktime) which is compatible with Apple devices. It can be placed in Google Drive and will play from there or can be downloaded to a PC. On the PC it can be viewed with Media Player or other PC video players.
More detailed instructions are in the SWIVL Users Guide.
