You’ve no doubt seen great training videos and course guides that made learning seem easy. Well it’s time for you to create these types of resources yourself—but where do you start? What kind of hardware, software, sound equipment, scripts, and cameras do you need to become your own video/training producer? In this class, we will answer these questions while passing along effective practices for using Camtasia software as our editing tool of choice. We will show you how to set up a video-capture environment and produce output for computers, Apple iPads, and television. We will cover storyboarding, audio/video capturing, using voice recognition, captioning, and basic voice-over editing. We will also discuss some techniques you can use to refine your training using video drafting to evaluate your technique, voice, and pacing. If you’ve wanted to start making your own training videos but weren't sure how to do it, this class will give you everything you need to get started.
