Five Versions of an Interactive Camtasia Course

The long anticipated finished product of our eLearning Brothers video course is here! Below, you’ll see each of my versions as I processed through my editing, reviews, and clean ups. You’ll also see a list of what was done between each version.

You are sure to find yourself creating several versions of your projects as you work through your editing process. It is good to export several times and versions so that you can see exactly what it is going to look like when you are finished. Sometimes you can only see things in their entirety when you’re watching through a media player, and not in the editor.

I wish you luck in your video productions. Hopefully, you’ve found some use in this series and will be able to make bigger and better videos and video courses as you move forward.
