 audio and video tips for e-learning courses

Today’s e-learning and online course authoring tools make it easy to leverage the power of multimedia. Your courses can include not only graphics and illustrations but also narration, music, screencast tutorials, and videos.

There’s a lot to know.  The good news is you don’t need to be a professional audio engineer or video producer to build good e-learning.  But it sure does help to know a little about both and how to get the best quality possible when using audio or video in your e-learning courses.

These posts provide tips and tricks to help you get the most out of the audio & video you do use in your e-learning courses.
