Cauldrons of Content: Recipes for Library Video Tutorials

Presented at the 2014 Joint Conference of Georgia COMO and the Southeastern Library Association on October 2, 2014 in Augusta, Georgia.


Video tutorials can be a quick and affordable solution for presenting knowledge, skills or resource awareness. They can educate people at their own pace, providing the option for viewers to pause, practice the new skill as they view the video, and even to return to the material over and over again until the skill or knowledge is learned or attained. Regardless of your technical background, this practical session will equip librarians or library staff with all of the essential ingredients needed to begin cooking up video tutorials right away! Key topics will include screen recording software options, best practices for video tutorial content and length, promoting video tutorials, tracking tutorial effectiveness, and tips for liaising with stakeholders within your library.
