You have the option to pause and resume the recording - when you are finished, click stop. Note that the maximum length of a recorded video here is 10 minutes.

You have the option once stopped to playback the recorded video, or to click 'Record' again to overwrite this recording. 

Click 'OK' when you are done and the video will be uploaded to Learnosity.

You will be able to create a heading and upload a poster image for the video, as well as configure the Width and Height of the video, or hide video controls for the student if desired.

Once embedded, the position of the video player in the Question content can be changed by moving around the video player object inside the text editor window.
