How to get it done?

  • Make sure you plan every phase of the production process in your calendar: preparation, recording and post-production. 
  • With regards to the preparation: it is recommended to block dedicated time in your agenda to write down what you want to say, find your visuals and take time to do reviews and practice.
  • Keep in mind that it is probably better to select the topics you want to turn into a video; some topics might be better suited for a different type of learning activity.
