A Complete Guide for Recording, Editing, and Exporting Educational Videos with Wondershare DemoCreator
Exporting Educational Videos with Wondershare DemoCreator
If you are an educator, then you might already know how tedious it can be to come up with informative yet interesting online content. Most of the content creators record their screens to educate others about a topic, but the process can be extremely tedious. To make your job easier, I have come up with this dedicated guide on Wondershare DemoCreator. Here, I will let you know how to record your screen, edit videos, and export them – all in one place. Let’s begin!
Part 1: Tips for Effective Remote Teaching Practices
In the present scenario, e-learning has taken a huge leap and almost every school or university is going online. Therefore, to provide a comprehensive learning experience to your students, I would recommend the following tips.
- Practice asynchronous teaching
Instead of taking lectures online, you can consider recording videos beforehand as per your convenience. Later, your students can watch the online lectures (or re-watch them) whenever they like.
- Reshoot and edit
You might already know that live screencasting can lead to certain errors and might not be so effective. The best thing about asynchronous teaching is that you can reshoot and edit your videos later to get the perfect lecture.
- Create micro-lectures
If your lectures are way too long, then your audience might find it hard to concentrate. Instead, you can record micro-lectures on each topic that would be more effective and precise.
- Use a Recording/Editing Tool
To make the entire process stress-free, you can consider using a dedicated tool that can record your screen and edit videos in one place. I have included one of the best video recorders and editors later in this guide.
