Use Riverside to record yourself at a convenient time and share the footage with whoever invited you. You can also use the teleprompter or share your screen while you record. 

You can record as many times as you want. However, only the last recording you make will be shared.

Before you begin recording your entire segment, do a short recording to check your camera and mic setup, then review the test.
