In order to record a video with your webcam you will need Windows Movie Maker. If your Windows operating system doesn't have Movie Maker included, you can download it from Microsoft Download & Shop web page. In Windows Movie Maker go to Movie Tasks > Capture video > Capture from video device. Select your webcam in Available device field and click Next. Enter a file name and choose a place to save your captured video and click Next. On video settings tab select the video setting you want to use for capturing video and audio. Click again Next and the Start Capture button. After the video is ready click the Stop Capture button and Finish. You will find the video in the output folder.

I'm not sure whether you need help from a third-party screen recorder. I saw someone on YouTube record himself speaking using a webcam and a screen capture software named OBS. OBS is free, so maybe you could give it a shot. I'm using Joyoshare Screen Recorder. It's great, and helps me capture screen in high definition without latency, but I don't think it supports a webcam.
