The Covid-19 pandemic has negatively impacted societies in many sectors, including education sector. One of the effects is that teaching and learning activities cannot be done in campus, thus Teacher Professional Education or PPG (Pendidikan Profesi Guru) that used to be conducted in campus, should be carried out online by using LMS (Learning Management System) called SIM PKB. The problem is that the students are not familiar with the LMS used, which cause most of them to experience technical problems in the process of the digital learning. This condition requires the class administrators to guide them in using the LMS. This article discusses the use of a screen recorder application to guide PPG students’ learning. This research was conducted by observing the digital learning activities of PPG students in SIM PKB LMS before and after watching a video tutorial made using screen recorder application. The results show that the use of screen recorder is effective in helping class administrators to guide the students in operating the LMS. Before the video tutorial was published, there was a virtual meeting with the same objective. However, still, there were so many inquiries about particular functions in the LMS. After the video tutorial was given to the students, there was no more complain regarding technical problems, because the video tutorials can be played repeatedly. Once the video downloaded, the students can play it despite their unstable internet connections. In this case, screen recorders can also save more on the internet quota consumption.
