May Program: Practical Tips for Creating Effective Instructional Videos

Video tutorial concept

When you Google how to do something, do you typically choose the user manual, a Help topic, or a two-minute video from the search results? Judging by the explosion in the number of how-to videos that are available on YouTube and elsewhere, demand for videos continues to grow. So why not give your users what they want and control the messaging before an enterprising videographer outside your company fills the void? You can do this!

Join us on Wednesday, May 26, 6pm, as Mike Nelson shares the best practices, techniques, and shortcuts he has learned from his nearly 10 years of experience creating award-winning instructional videos supporting KVH Industries’ satellite antenna products. Note: Although all example projects were built in Camtasia, many of the tips will apply regardless of the tool you choose to create your videos. Even if you are already creating videos, you might pick up a time-saver or two from this session – and perhaps you have tips of your own you’d like to share!

This online event is being offered free of charge for all STC New England members and students. STC members from other chapters are welcome to attend for $5.
