Tips for Creating Videos

  • We highly recommend the use of closed captions/subtitles to make your club video accessible. You can add subtitles to videos in video editing software (ie iMovie or Windows Movie Maker).  Check out additional online software to assist with adding subtitles to your video. 

  • An easy way to create an informative video is to use Zoom or WebEx, present a PowerPoint, and then share your screen and narrate over the video. If you want to create a fancier PowerPoint presentation, check out these online software to animate presentations.
