If you don't have Camtasia or ScreenFlow, you can use the built-in QuickTime Player to record the screen on Mac OSX.

Open the QuickTime Player through the Applications folder, or by using search (Ctrl + Space) and typing QuickTime:

QuickTime Player
Figure: Search for QuickTime Player

From QuickTime Player, you can start a new Screen Recording from the File menu:

QuickTime new screen recording
Figure: QuickTime Player New Screen Recording

In the Screen Recording window, you an select which microphone to use if you want to record audio:

QuickTime Recorder
Figure: Select your audio device

Tip: Alternatively, you can use Loom , which works as a Google Chrome extension.
