Description

Are you looking to learn some simple yet impactful ways to make your Udemy course engaging for students? Did you know you can use video editing to ensure your students have an amazing learning experience? Feeling a bit rusty with video editing terminology and tactics and want to brush up on your skills? Are you hoping to take your Udemy course from good to great?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then this course is for you. In this official, Udemy-produced course you’ll learn editing tips and tricks that, while simple to pull off, have a big impact on the look and content of your course.

We'll go over two different ways you can use video editing in your Udemy course:

  1. You'll learn how to make your videos look and sound more professional by implementing things like background music, slides, and sound effects.

  2. You'll learn how to apply Learning Science best practices by implementing things like annotations and other visual cues

A quick note -- we won't teach you how to use every editing software out there. We will, however, go over the big picture of what edits you should be making in your course, and how these edits can help ensure you're delivering an amazing learning experience for your students. This should help you focus your own editing efforts in whichever software program you decide to use.

This course is part of the "Filming" track of Udemy's Official Instructor Education Program. In each of our official courses we strive to deliver information-packed lectures that quickly give you the information you need to make your course creation process easy and your final product amazing.
