Teachers are always surprised by how easy it is to record high-quality classes at home without breaking the bank. Whether you’re planning on filming a screencast-based class with a quick talking head intro, or an entire class where you’ll show your process for creating your own beautiful Kokedama, you’ll need a few tools to help you get started.
Has this ever happened to you? You're scrolling through Skillshare and wonder, "how did that class get over 1,000 enrollments?" Or you open up an email and think, "how did that class get featured in the trending section?" Or you're reading the blog and come across an interview with a teacher and ask, "how did they earn enough to quit their day job?"
Every type of class has its own unique attributes and style. A Business class may use slides to emphasize key concepts and a Music class may use screencasting to give a walkthrough of a new recording software. What you’re teaching requires a different setup or style to properly demonstrate the skills you want students to learn.
We noticed that Crafts classes are on the up and up, so we compiled a few best practices to ensure that you are recording the best, most accessible class you can.
