Bi-Weekly Video Update – 05/26/18
Hey there, I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend with family and friends. It’s Michelle this week and I’d like to share with you a video on how I remade an interactive demo (originally created in an expensive elearning tool) with Camtasia. Learn how you can add these types of quick activities to your video courses to keep your learners engaged.
On the Blog:
Probably one of the most common questions that video course developers ask is, "How do I make my videos more engaging and interactive (i.e. less boring)?” While you may not be creating frog dissection videos (like I recreated for this demo), the idea is the same: Use Camtasia hotspots to "wake up" your viewers and make them show you that they have learned something!
7 Unexpected Uses of eLearning Video Demos
If you are looking for a niche in which to specialize with video, this article from our friend Christopher Pappas, founder of elearningindustry.com, gives you 7 great ideas. If you got really good at one of these and marketed yourself as the "go to person" for that sort of video, I think you could differentiate yourself enough, from other video creators, to make a nice income.
More Free Private Coaching Added
If you’re the type that prefers one-on-one help when struggling with a video problem or trying to decide some bigger issues with your Screencast career, I’ve got good news for you.
The summer schedule for our Screencast Video Coaching has changed so each month we offer, two live one-hour webinars (delivered by Lon) and six 30- minute time slots available for coaching appointments with me (on a first come, first served basis).
This means I can work more personally with many of you who I have otherwise only "seen" as muted attendees of our webinars!
Sign up for our Screencast Coaching Membership now and we can be working together in June.
