Creating the First Tutorials

To learn through experience how exactly to approach the development of tutorial videos, the video production team within our group worked to create three tutorials. The programming team in our group embedded the videos on the website from private links to YouTube where the videos were originally posted. The video-making process was significantly more time consuming than originally anticipated. An animated logo is also an emerging possibility as we solidify our standard format for each tutorial. In addition to video and web development done outside of class, we participated in a brief Skype practice session which brought to our attention the need to practice our elevator pitch and be prepared to represent our product. We’ll be working on that as well as the search engine for our website, more practice in making video tutorials, and refining the website in general. With the videos posted and parts of the website functioning correctly, it’s exciting to see the results of our work.
