Recording Technology for Outstanding Online Content

Learning professionals know that they need to produce good video recordings to complement their other training offerings, however, it’s hard to cut through the hype to understand what you need to know about recording technology, and what you don’t.  In this session, I break down the needs for producing good video including both audio and video technologies and talk about the essentials (audio) and the nice to haves (video).  I talk about lighting and how to get a good appearance on video but focus more time on how to get the audio to sound right and the issues that get in the way of great audio.
