Video on a Shoestring Spotlight 2018 - June 6, 2018
Head of Training
When it comes to software tutorials, screen capture video is one of your most effective options. That said, it’s not uncommon when getting started with video to worry about the time and resources you’ll have to commit—even more so when constant changes in software interfaces could quickly make your videos outdated. But video software tutorials don't have to be time and resource intensive to be effective.
In this session, you’ll learn how to create software tutorial videos in five steps—without breaking the bank. With this workflow and the proper planning, you’ll have no problem introducing video into your software/product training strategy, even for software that changes quickly. The session will cover helpful techniques for improving the quality of your production with each step, and introduce affordable planning, recording, and editing technologies to keep your process as efficient and agile as possible. You’ll also receive resources to help you with the process as you try it yourself.
In this session, you will learn:
- A framework for creating software tutorial videos from start to finish
- How to best plan for video creation so it’s a fast, enjoyable process
- Tips for creating video when the software you’re supporting frequently changes interfaces
