P06 BYOD: Training Video Bootcamp
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Monday, March 25
Anyone can shoot and edit video, but how many create training videos that look professional and lead to learning? Loads of training videos induce yawns, and many people don’t watch past 10 to 15 seconds unless they’re drawn in and convinced it will help them learn. Drawing on media theory and using professional techniques of production and planning can help bring training videos alive.
This workshop will introduce you to the key principles of what makes effective training videos, drawing on professional media practice that will make any training video—whether it be an explainer video or software training video—look polished and make learning quick and easy. Each participant will plan, shoot, and edit a 60-second video, following a production process designed to make video production faster, by the end of the day. You will leave with video production skills you can immediately use.
In this session, you will learn:
- To plan videos so they are quick and easy to understand
- To plan the production of a training video so it’s produced quickly, without wasting time
- To shoot basic video using a cell phone following professional framing techniques
- To edit basic video so it looks polished and supports learning
