Creating Video Demos as Help Documentation

The presentation examines the vital importance of offering short video assets as part of our help documentation. Initiate the process of creating movies by investigating candidate topics, and get input from company resources, like SMEs and the product organization. Take into consideration the large amount of time needed (rule of thumb formula of # of work days per minutes of finished video), the ‘shelf life’ of your movies, toggling the intensive work of video creation with feature writing, within the Agile cycle.

Plan the sequence of the video and author the narration using a storyboard. Recording and editing with Camtasia and creating narration with artificial voice generation programs.

Some things to watch out for in production, and the satisfaction and recognition you can enjoy when your movies become available.
