Lynn over at ScreenFlow was kind enough to invite me to write a guest post on screencast planning. I’ve written a two page post on the 4 steps to planning a tutorial screencast, it should give you some ideas on how to think about:
- audience – who are they and what are their needs?
- outlining – what’s the shortest and best demo to teach your audience?
- scripting – how to write a simple script that you can follow
- distribution – what to include so your screencast works wherever it is distributed
To improve your screencasting knowledge you must read The Screencasting Handbook. The author (Ian Ozsvald) also blogs.
