Video Best Practices
Don't have time to review this entire guide? At the very least, keep these best practices in mind*:
- If your presentation is longer than 10 minutes, split it into several videos or easily navigable sections.
- At the beginning of your video provide an overview of your presentation and learning objectives.
- At the end, provide a summary.
- Rather than including a lot of text, use a couple of key words or related visuals.
- Provide explanation with voice narration, not text.
- Script and/or storyboard each slide or talking point. It will save time during recording and make your narration clearer.
- Don't forget that your voice tone should be conversational! Monotone and recitations are much less engaging.
- To help keep your audience's attention, you can embed a simple recall type quiz in a video. You can also add an evaluation survey at the end.
