You must also prepare a set of 5 multiple-choice questions to be submitted with the recorded lecture. You will also need to provide a bibliography/references list (last slide of presentation).
You may choose any method to record your lecture as long as it can be submitted on Canvas and viewed.
One of the easiest ways to do the recording is directly on the PowerPoint slides.
