You might consider getting software dedicated to screen capture. There are often added bels an whistles, like mouse click highlights and onscreen key command displays. I would suggest this one:
APP BUNDLE: ISHOWU INSTANT+ADVANCED FEATURES+ISHOWU STUDIO 2 - $79
It is possible the $24 ISHOWU INSTANT will be enough, but a full representation of your work with the Bundle may be worth it if you want this to be a teaching tool. The Studio is an editing suit design to create online presentations.
If you are ZOOM-ing you just use the "share screen" feature. Whatever you have on your screen or you can select a specific window to share. It will be visible -- you are not having to deal with live streaming or video compression. If your
computer can play the video you have created you can share it while providing live commentary. Also ZOOM will record the entire presentation. If you have a free version you will be limited on your ZOOM session time. Make sure you are able to do a full 4
hour session. Hope that helps.

One option is to record in QT, edit in iMovie or something similar, save at 1080, then upload to Vimeo, or someplace similar. You can then play the recording for your students without having the full, uncompressed version taking up your hard drive space.
You could also save your movies to an external drive.
My recordings are generally 2 hours, but I took a 3-hour painting class that was recorded in Zoom and the playback on YouTube was pretty good.

meeting Webinar series last month. Her photoshop painting skills are breathtaking and it was amazing - and a very effective way to teach. I made a c. 4 minute recording, and QT saved it as 800 MG, so 4 hours will be unmanageably huge. I did a re-save at
1080 ppi and it dropped to less than 400 MG, but still - seems too big. The 2 lower quality file save options were too low res. to be useful.
