Learn how to make better videos for your website

This past weekend’s WordPress class went very well, nearly full class and the new approach hit the mark. Next up on February 2nd is my podcasting and video blogging class and like last week’s WordPress class, I’m taking a new approach to the whole class.

As much as I love podcasting (that is audio only), video is really where it’s at. On the video side, I think video blogging might have had it’s day as well. What’s left? Actually, everything…

Because while people might not podcast or video blog as much as they used to, the how you shoot video or record audio hasn’t changed. Today people need videos for Kickstarter or product demos. Maybe a voice over for a screencast or slide deck you’re posting on Slideshare. This means that it’s just as important now, maybe even more so now, that you know how to record great videos with great audio for social media, marketing, and frankly being able to get your message out to the world.

So on February 2nd the class will cover how to shoot better videos—including a focus on mobile video—and post them online. And I’ll go beyond just “regular” video and get into screencasts of apps and websites. Audio? How about tips and tricks for recording voice overs? And since podcasting isn’t dead, we’ll cover audio and video podcasts as well.

The key here is that while “podcasting” might not be the in thing, posting videos online has only become more popular.

The question for you is, then—do you want to learn how to shoot, edit, and upload great videos?

If you do, join me in a couple weeks for a full-day of audio and video fun and learning. Heck, maybe we’ll make a parody video or something fun.

You never know, I haven’t finished updating my class outline yet…
