I recently participated in one of the e-Learning Heroes’ weekly challenges which challenged participants to create a training video using their smartphone.
Before I started this challenge I did a bit of research on using smartphones for video production and came across this YouTube video which I found extremely helpful, particularly the tip about how to focus on the main object you’re trying to capture in your video.
I produced a short video on the topic “How to make coffee” and learned many lessons along the way. This challenge proved to me that there is value in considering this option for producing training content, but having the right set-up equipment would definitely help.
Here is my final production, with an overview of how I went about this and what I learnt (click on the image).
