What is a documentation video?
A documentation video is a recording where you walk through a tutorial, training, onboarding, or policy to disseminate that knowledge. You can create a documentation video easily using Tella’s screen recorder. If you have a presentation or want to share something on your screen, you can use Tella to create a video of your screen and webcam. Tella also lets you edit it afterward, so your documentation videos are clear and concise.
How to make a documentation video:
Step 1: Record
Log in or sign up for Tella. It takes less than a minute. Once inside, open the screen recorder and pick the screen and camera you want to share. Press “Start recording.” Then, make as many recordings as you need to create your documentation video.
Step 2: Customise
When your recordings are all finished, move to Tella’s editor. You can trim, rearrange, cut, and split recordings, so the video is just the way you want it. You can also add subtitles and change the layout of the camera and screen.
Step 3: Share or Download
When you’re documentation video is complete, click “Finish.” You’ll be redirected to Tella’s share page, where you can watch the video in full. To share it with your team, use a unique link or download it as an MP4 file.
How long should a documentation video be?
A documentation video’s length depends on its context. For more technical documentation videos like a training video, it may need to be over 10 minutes long. But for quick updates on things like policies or benefits, they should be no longer than 5 minutes.
What is the point of documentation videos?
Documentation videos are critical for companies to onboard employees and make sure they have access to resources to answer their questions. For information that all teams or members should know, a documentation video that’s easily accessible is essential. For legal reasons, it may even be required that you have documentation for certain employee benefits or policies.
