Video Tutorial Design (2-week workshop)
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (CDT)
Learn how to script, structure, record and edit successful video tutorials in this interactive, hands-on workshop! Drawing from lynda.com tutorial creation model as inspiration, you will learn the best way to organize “big ideas” into smaller, digestable chunks of information. Come to this workshop with an idea of something you’d like to show the world, and leave with a polished product! We will use Screenflow as the screen capture software for this workshop.
By registering for this workshop you are registering for both sessions that will occur on
Wednesday, October 9, 10a-1p and
Wednesday, October 16, 10a-1p
Interested in this workshop? Great! We just want to make sure you're ready to go. This workshop expects that all participants have a good working knowledge of:
• Mac navigation techniques
• Mac OSX folder hierarchy
• Internet browser navigation techniques
If you need a refresher or are new to Macs, we strongly recommend that you first take our one-hour "Jumpstart Your Tech" class, which covers techniques on operating your Mac, as well as smart browser management. After that, you should be set to tackle many of our more technology-based courses.
To ensure that participants get the most from our programs, the CiTE now categorizes our offerings by designating the levels of technological knowledge and skill for which the program has been designed.
This workshop has been designated as:
Aspiring: Open for all levels of skill and experience

CiTE Standards & Expectations
Timeliness and attendance:
Workshop participants need to arrive on time. Admittance to the workshop may be denied if participants are more than 15 minutes late. We of course prefer that you 0 minutes late!
Why would we turn you away from a free faculty workshop, when we realize and appreciate that you have so much else going on? A couple of reasons:
Tardiness often causes unwanted distractions for the rest of the workshop attendees, thereby affecting their overall enjoyment and understanding of class material.
Tardiness often causes a situation where the class needs to totally “stop” in order to get the late participant(s) caught up. This is not only a distraction to all else in the room, but it hinders class progress and may even affect workshop learning outcomes.
**Participants who are more than 15 minutes late or leave more than 15 minutes early may be denied the workshop stipend.**
Distracting (web and mobile-based) activities:
Workshop participants must only work on workshop content during the duration of the workshop. We know it’s tempting to surf the web, check email, or even take care of personal business while you’re in our classroom. However, some workshop participants have been abusing personal web-surfing time—something their peers have said is extremely distracting. Please limit personal web-surfing and email-checking to the break (we promise we’ll give you one!) If you are repeatedly observed breaking this protocol, we will likely ask you to leave the workshop.
