Description

APRIL 2015 UPDATE:
Added detail lesson notes/summaries!

Videoscribe is a whiteboard animation program that lets you create videos straight from your computer. You can easily have a hand (that you can choose) draw each word or image as you're saying them in a voiceover!

We'll start with the best way to approach the program and build a strong foundation so that working with the program's quirks will be a piece of cake!

I've also included the sample files that I created throughout the course so that you can open them yourself to learn how I did a certain effect!

The program is always being updated and I'll continue to update the course to explain new features and techniques!

It's time to create some amazing whiteboard videos, so let's get started!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to create whiteboard content his/her website/business
  • Anyone who wants to learn advanced Videoscribe techniques
  • NOT for people looking for a free way to create whiteboard videos
  • No past experience with the program is needed

Video Creation Instructor

I believe that tutorials don't need to be extremely long to be effective. I created my VideoHelp website and all of my video creation courses because I was tired of seeing 5+ hour courses created when the same thing could have been taught in 1-2 hours.

Video creation is getting increasingly important for both online and offline success. Don't waste your time watching 3 different Youtube videos every time you want to learn one particular part of a program! I'll teach it to you in a fun, fast, and comprehensive way!

I love learning new things about a program and I am eager to share that knowledge with you!
