Using the iPhone for low-cost Film and Audio Recording in the Classroom

Technical Tutorial Published 6/13/16 Last updated on 5/2/19

While this doesn't directly have to do with Adobe yet, I thought I'd share a series of videos I created for the Centropa Summer Academy that I'll be attending this summer where I will be helping many teachers learn how to using filmmaking in their classrooms.

The tutorials are basic introductions to the products, apps, and techniques one can use to get quality video and audio out of one's iPhone or similar smart phone.

I hope this helps any teachers who want to bring filming into their classrooms but don't have the funds to buy much equipment.


  • Adobe Premiere Pro

    Edit media in its native format and create productions for film, TV, and web.

  • Adobe Spark

    Adobe Spark is an easy-to-use tool that helps you turn your ideas into compelling social graphics, web stories, and animated videos

This video series is aim at teaching teachers how to use the iPhone to film and record quality audio through a few low-cost tools and apps.

Below are links to Centropa (the summer academy for which the video series was originally created) as well as the filmmaking items discussed and used.
