Creating Video for Teachers and Trainers
This practical resource will help teachers and trainers produce professional quality training videos, even while using less than professional quality equipment and software. Author Timothy Spannaus shows how to use professional techniques with consumer-grade equipment to produce videos that work and tell the intended story, minimizing defects that get in the way of improving learning and performance. The end result is a video that can be used in classroom or labs, distributed on the web, packaged for use in learning management systems, or shared on social media sites.
