If you’ll ever need to complement a documentation set with videos, your best bet is to make how-to videos. They are a great stepping stone as they visualize complex processes and make them come to life. In this session we’ll show what we do to create the visual style, graphics, animations, and recordings we use for creating engaging how-to videos. We’ll also talk about design in general, the collaboration process, nice-to-haves, and recommendations meant to inspire you to make your own how-to videos.
I have been a User Assistance developer at SAP since 2011. For the last four years my regular tasks have been overshadowed by the exploration of the brave (not so new, but kind of overlooked) world of videos. From infographics, promotional, to conference intros and interviews, I believe that when we mix a bit of design, proper music, an icebreaker joke, and a pinch of soul, videos become the best media our era can offer.
I am a User Assistance developer at SAP since 2016. Apart from writing, I have been doing my best to help UA developers and Software developers improve their video editing skills for the last couple of years. I believe that videos are a relevant asset to software development, documentation, and marketing.
