Importance Of Developing Software Training VideosImportance Of Developing Software Training Videos

One of the most popular videos being made in the software industry is the software training videos. The software developers find these to be simple and impressive. These videos introduce it their target demographics and they can use it to understand the basic points and intensive features. One can upload them into the different video channels like YouTube. They can also be submitted in software review websites to engage more potential users.

For people who want to find some programs, which can help them, solve certain problems, they can find systematic tutorial videos to learn how to master them. It's much easier and clearer to understand and follow than to read help document in text. Software training videos provide a very helpful opportunity to link up software end users and developers. It's a win-win solution to both sides. However, don't consider that building software training video is just a simple presentation recording process. There're many things in detail you have to pay attention to. In this article, we note down some of the most important items for you to make better training video production, no matter software providers or end users you are.

What is needed

•           Experience of using software

•           Screen recorder and webcam (the latter is optional)

•           Microphone

•           Outline of training video

Check all things in order

Once you decide to record presentation for software, write down all points you want to show to your audience in your training video on paper in advance. Then choose one screen recording software which allows you to record what you can see on your computer screen and save it as a video file. Here are many choices depending on what kind of software you introduce and what kind of training video you want make.

Microphone is also essential since majority of screen recorders allow you to record narration during the video recording, indicating more information can be shared in video.

Start software presentations

In this part, the major thing is to demonstrate to your audience the software and how to use it.  You can quickly go through it once you are well-prepared on your outline, but there are still something you should pay attention to.

Describe in order: Arrange your presentation in order if the software is moderate enough to tell everything one by one. Another way is to make a series of training videos, which aim at one specific feature in each video.

Emphasize the keypoint:  Don't attempt to put all things in your training video, that can only make your audience confused since they don't know what's the key feature you want to show to them. Take advantages of some video recording effect like zoom-n-pan, highlight and narration to remind people which part should be given specific focus to.

Keep your mouse calm: Beware of moving your mouse on and on while giving presentation.

Control the length of video: The concentrated duration of your audience is limited so you should handle your video time. 5 minutes or less is properly accepted by most of video watchers.

Enhance the video in post production

Your video can be more impressive and interactive by inserting these special effects during the training video production.

Publish your training video

The last step is to save your software presentation as video file. Screen recording software can generate video in different formats but the most common ones are AVI and WMV. Some programs have already supported up-to 7 popular video formats including FLV, MP4, MPEG, 3GP and some other documentation standards for education and learning.
