How to Create a Microvideo

Microvideo could be the biggest content trend in training and technical communication. Learn how to use Camtasia to create a microvideo tutorial.

Let's get started.

A well-crafted microvideo can be a powerful tool that provides that just-in-time visual reference or training to help viewers complete a task. An example is one of those popular recipe tutorials on social media. This medium is used in many contexts, but technical communicators have discovered it's value in documentation and training. That said, let’s look at how to create one.

Before recording and editing your video, it’s important to make sure you have a clear objective or learning goal. This is helpful when editing microvideo since one of the most important skills required to craft micro content is editing. Clear goals will help you make better decisions when it comes time to edit things out and determine the simplest path to success for your learner.
