Specifically, it examined the experiences of students on self-recorded videos having the following research questions: 1. How was the experience of the students in making self-recorded speeches? 2. What were the problems encountered in making self-recorded videos? 3. What were the coping mechanisms that the students employed to overcome the problems encountered? The respondents of this study are Grade 11 students of Baguio Central University taking the subject Oral Communication. The final output of the students for the subject are self-recorded speeches. After doing the requirement, students were interviewed. Interview questions were given online via messenger. After the responses were submitted, it was transcribed and then themed.
