The CALL Continuing Education Committee Presents So What If it’s Not Perfect: Creating Training Videos Using What You Have

What:: In 2016, Debbie Ginsberg and Sean Rebstock (along with Alex Berrio Matamoros) presented a session for AALL on creating training videos quickly and easily.  In this session, we’ll update our AALL presentation with new information.

When you find you need to create instructions fast or provide instant feedback, videos are often the perfect solution.  You don’t need to storyboard, write a script, or spend hours re-recording screenshots. Just create a basic plan and record! In this webinar, Sean and Debbie will show you how to create quick recordings for all kinds of projects.  We’ll discuss best practices for creating short videos.  We’ll also demonstrate popular software and evaluate the best hardware to use – tools you likely already have.

Your videos don’t need to be perfect to be informative. Once you get started, you’ll find the short video is one of your most powerful instructional tools.

When: Tuesday, April 9, Noon to 1:00 pm

Where:  At your desk.  This program will be a webinar.  Registrants will receive webinar details prior to the program.
