I have been using my smart phone to record parts of my lectures. I would like to use my laptop and an external minicam to record my lectures so that I can ensure that I don't miss anything in class. Any suggestion on which webcam to get and what software should I run. I am using PC and not a MAC. I wanted a minicam so I can temporally mount it on the back of my laptop. I need some good software that will run under Windows 8 and Windows 7. I need advice as to what to get.

I'd get a go pro  camera. It would be rugged, and not be so obvious to the lecturer that he's being recorded, and would give quite reasonable depth of field. Because it's recording direct to sd card you wouldn't need software unless you were editing footage.
