14:00 – 14:45 How To Write a Great Video Script by Yulia Guseva
A poor script is one of the most common problems that lead to non-engaging videos. In this workshop Yulia will give you tips and share the best practices for writing and formatting scripts that will be spoken on camera. You will see examples of good and bad scripts and learn how the teleprompter works with a script.

14:00 – 14:45 Workshop on Camtasia with Marika Sarvilahti and Tove Ørsted
Camtasia is an easy to use screen recording and editing program. It can be used for capturing anything on your screen including websites and software with audio, annotations, animations and subtitles. Marika and Tove used Camtasia for an Aalto Online Learning pilot to make short how-to-videos that demonstrate searching and exploring digital cultural heritage collections online. In this workshop they will present the basics of planning and making a video project with Camtasia:

  • Writing a script
  • Planning screen capture video
  • Capturing audio
  • Editing the videos
  • Adding titles, subtitles and effects
  • Sharing the videos
