Google Hangouts on Air
Another great tool for capturing content with your webcam is Google Hangout, it is called Hangouts On Air. Plan a panel discussion with colleagues without needing to travel, set it up to record before starting the call and once you are ready you can not only broadcast it live, but it will automatically appear in your YouTube channel.
What is also great about hangout is that you can use slides, powerpoints and more by clicking the screenshare option.
If your laptop has a mic input add on one of the $23 lavaliere microphones, it always helps to get better sound!
