There are a number of resources for recording your session. Your recording can be either video or audio. The following are instructions for several of the options you may wish to use to complete your online assignments and turn them in, in addition, we have included a list of resources at the bottom of the page. Please name your files like this: lastname_methoddemonstrated_date So an example would be Davidson_TelltheStory_022817.mp4
Recording Your Assignment
By far, the easiest way to video record sessions is with a free account : http://bit.ly/2kLBB16 The only limitation is that the free account can be no more than 40 minutes. So any “housekeeping” (introductions, explanations, showing points, finding an event, etc) can be the first recording and the actual session can be the next recording. Alternatively, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have your appointment set up through your mentor’s Zoom Pro account or sign up for your own Zoom Pro which is $15/month. Zoom Pro allows unlimited recording.
Free Conference Call
www.freeconferencecall.com allows free recording of phone calls. The will provide a free number for both parties (you and your practice client) to call. Follow the provided instructions to begin recording – and then send your link to Karin@HowToTap.com, in addition to copying the link into a word or text document and uploading it into the appropriate place in within the lesson you are working – be sure to also indicate your name, lesson, and skill in the document.
YouTube Quick Start Guide
YouTube videos can easily be set to unlisted, and you can share the link only with us, making it impossible for the public to view your video. YouTube allows you to record a video using the program or camera of your choice, and then uploading it, or recording directly from your computer’s webcam. To use YouTube, you will need a free Google Account (https://accounts.google.com/SignUp)
Go to YouTube.com and click on the Upload button (top center). You will be prompted to login, and then the following page will load:
Note you have options for recording directly from a webcam and for video editing (click and follow the prompts to use these tools–or see YouTube resources at the end of this document).
Submitting a Video Assignment
To upload a video, drag your video file to the upload icon in the middle of the screen where it reads ‘Select files to upload’ and drop it over the icon.
Once the upload is complete you will be able to set your video preferences, including your privacy settings. Videos are public by default.
Select your Privacy Settings
•Public videos are publicly viewable and findable by anyone. (not private)
•Unlisted videos are publicly viewable, but not listed anywhere for the public to easily find. You email them the video link.
•Private videos are only viewable by people you indicate. You grant permission and email them the video link.
Select your video’s privacy setting with the drop-down menu under Privacy settings (upper right). Please make your assignment videos unlisted, and notify your mentor when they are available for viewing. They can be deleted or changed to private once they have been reviewed.
Click on ‘Save’ (lower right).
Your YouTube video is now ready! The link to your video is located near the top of the window, next to the video title.
Copy this link, paste it into a Word or Text document, being sure to indicate your name, lesson, and skill, and upload it where indicated in the appropriate lesson at wellnessonlinetraining.com
Super Tin Tin
Another option for recording your online assignments is Super Tin Tin – a free audio/video recorder designed specifically for use with Skype and/or MSN Webcam Recorder. SuperTintin allows you to record all audio and video of your Skype conversation, allowing you to record the video that you see throughout the conversation, and/or the video that the other participant sees. It also allows you to digitally record the audio that you would hear through your speakers (the other participants side of the conversation), and/or the audio that is picked up by your microwave (your side of the conversation).
Once you have downloaded the application, to start a recording of a Skype conversation is quite simple. All you have to do is:
- Launch Skype and start your video call, as you normally would.
- On the SuperTintin Main Window click the Red “Record” button and your conversation will be recorded for you.
Super Tin Tin offers a variety of options for video size, as well as what elements of your Skype call are recorded, and how, all of which can be configured in the main window before your call.
Once you’ve recorded your call, Super Tin Tin will save a video/audio file to your computer. Simply re-name the file to include your name and the lesson assignment the recording will fulfill, and depending on its size, email it to Karin@HowToTap.com, follow our instructions below to set up a DropBox account, or upload it directly to the

Turning Your Assignment In
Once your assignment has been completed, you will need to share it with Karin (or your mentor) in order to receive credit and feedback. There are several options with which you can accomplish this, many of which are free.
As a part of your EFT Certification course, you are provided with a complementary DropBox folder for sharing your files, video, and audio recordings. This will allow you to upload and store your assignments in one place, everything you place in your folder is automatically shared with your mentor. Assignment recordings, case studies, and completed forms can all be “turned in” by placing them in your dropbox folder.
Once you have registered for the EFT Certification course, you will receive an email from dropbox inviting you to your shared folder (the folder is shared with your mentor). Follow the instructions provided in the email to access and use your folder.
You can view more detailed instructions about using Dropbox in this DropBox Guide.
Alternatives to DropBox for turning in or sharing your completed assignments include One Drive and Google Drive, which both work similarly to DropBox and have ample instructions and support.
