How do I create one of these videos?
I know the concept of creating a "video" sounds complicated and scary, but trust me it's very simple indeed!
You don’t need to have knowledge of fancy e-learning software like Articulate or Captivate. There are a few options which each have their own pros and cons, but are all straight forward:
Option 1: Create video directly from PowerPoint 2010
Prepare a slide deck as you would for a presentation.
Record your narration and transitions within the presentation (slide show tab)
Select Save As>Windows Media Video (*.wmv)
Option 2: Create video from PowerPoint slides and separate audio files
Prepare a slide deck as you would for a presentation
Save slides as images (Save As>Device Independent Bitmap (*.bmp))
Record you narration via Windows Sound Recorder
Combine the slides and audio with Windows Movie Maker
Option 3: Record live presentation via Web Conferencing (e.g. Microsoft Live Meeting)
It’s as simple as that!
