Whiteboard videos are a great way to emphasize key points through video. By recording someone drawing on a whiteboard, or sliding around images that relate to your subject, you can enhance the learning experience by reinforcing your message visually. Whiteboard videos are hot right now because they’re engaging and enforce the message of any subject through the power of visual enhancement to the audio message. Plus, they’re just cool. This session will teach you some tips, tricks, and best practices for creating one of these videos on a low budget, with minimal artistic skill, and with the limited tools at your disposal.

 Session participants will learn how to set up the workstation, how to prepare your artwork and do fewer takes, and how to edit your videos in post-production to achieve the ultimate goal of enhancing the learning experience. You’ll cover camera selection, video editing, lighting-kit set up, and preparation of images.
