Creating 'How-To' Videos from DITA with Wouter Maagdenberg of TXTOmedia


Published on

In this presentation, Wouter talks about instructional video and how to create them effectively in bulk. Don't expect to create a full-length feature film. Forget about helicopter shots and the Academy, because that's not what your audience is looking for. They are looking for crisp, clean, and short instructional videos that are to-the-point, on their screen immediately, and in their native language.

Wouter will show you how you to deliver instantly, and will unravel a secret — you already have these videos, but you just don't know it yet.

Three Takeaways:
1) You can do video.
2) You can do it now.
3) You need to do it.

Presented November 29, 2018, at Quadrus Conference Center for Information Development World 2018.
