Presentations are all about communication and visual communication is one of the major ways we receive that information. In the culinary world there’s a saying “We eat with our eyes first”.

Your PowerPoint slides need to capture the viewers’ attention with clean consistent slides that engage them visually so they stay attentive until they have received your message and call to action.
Every once in a while I like to feature a client screencast and share a bit about some of my interactions with the the client while creating it. Today I just got great feedback from my latest client, Ann Smarty, over at MyBlogGuest.com on the video we (I say we because this was a team effort) created for her business. First take a look at the video, then I’ll share with you the high level plan for creating it.
Last month I delivered Instructor-Led Camtasia Studio training to two small groups: once for Chick Fil A Corporate offices here in Atlanta and once for Castellini in Kentucky. Both companies were vastly different in their environment and in the ways they were planning on using the software. I wanted to share my observations to give you some ideas of how corporations are using this premier Screencasting software.
I’ve been creating so many training videos lately that I recently took some time to think about why I love video based on-line training more than I’ve ever liked going into a classroom and sitting through hours or days of an instructor led classroom course. Although in traditional Web based Learning, learners don’t design the content, they have greater control over their learning environment and can modify it to meet their learning and life styles.
