How to make tutorial videos

Looking for tutorial video maker software?

With online courses on places like Udemy, Vimeo and even YouTube, the internet is changing how we learn and earn. Today, if you have more knowledge about a field than the average person, then you can quickly make a screencast video teaching people how to do that which you are good at. A video demonstration is easier and drives your point home quicker than pages of books or blogs.

This post will teach you how to make excellent tutorial videos in the simplest way possible without spending thousands of dollars on fancy softwares. Not only that, you can also use a tutorial video to record a message or guide for a new employee or even friends and family.

Video remains the fastest way to demonstrate how to accomplish tasks or use a tool. For example, rather than having someone read through a 10-page manual on how to create an email account, you can simply record yourself creating one. Our recommended program even lets you record your voice, superimpose your facecam recording on a corner of your recording, or even add arrows, boxes or numbers to the video in real-time.

Tips for creating your tutorial video

1. Prepare for the tutorial

To make a tutorial video, you need a computer, microphone and tutorial video maker software, such as Bandicam. If you have a webcam, you can add your face to the corner of the screen. Plan the content while keeping the script simple, identify your audience, and know the best tone for the tutorial.

2. Rehearse the steps

Your video has to be as direct and straight-to-the-point as possible, so make every second count. Go over the steps multiple times, record yourself doing it, watch the recording, and show it to a second pair of eyes.

3. Record the video
