The Oral History Center is hosting a Remote Interviewing Webinar:
From The Oral History Center at UC Berkeley: http://ucblib.link/OHC
This is a recording of a webinar given by historian Paul Burnett on how to record oral history interviews using Zoom. Paul provides an overview of the protocols that were developed to facilitate remote recording of narrators of the highest quality available during the COVID-19 pandemic. We developed these protocols for the Zoom video conference platform using both audio and video. We also provide instructions for additional, higher-quality backup audio recordings. Interviewers will benefit from having access to a professional Zoom license, but they can produce good recordings with a free account as well. Narrators only need access to a computer or telephone, although a smartphone app will aid in the capture of better audio on their end.
