Are you looking to share your knowledge with the world? Making an educational and instructional video is the perfect way to do so! Video content is continually on the rise across platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, and it has never been easier or the tools more accessible to make a great educational video.

Sort out the technical details
The first thing that you will need to do after deciding that you are going to make an educational and instructional video is to take care of the technical details. Would you rather film your video on a digital camera, a mobile phone or a specialised camcorder with a microphone? Deciding on this information before you start will ensure that the process of creating your educational video goes as smoothly as possible.

Lighting is one of the most important factors in any video as you will want to ensure that your video is bright and eye-catching. You can either choose to film in a location with great natural lighting or bring your own lighting.

Another important factor is to have a good microphone. This will help to ensure that your message is delivered loud and clear. A microphone can improve the value of your educational video a lot.

Lastly, you need to have a think about the goals of your video. Will this video be posted online? In a professional workshop? Or maybe in a classroom? If this is the case, then you will want to make sure that you are investing in the right equipment that allows for professional recording. However, using your phone is okay sometimes, especially if you are just making the video for fun.

Where are you going to film?
The next stage of making an educational and instructional video is to decide on your filming location. This should be somewhere comfortable and, if necessary, there should be space available for any other equipment that is required. Make sure that any surrounding noise is kept to a minimum as this can ruin your video.

Look at the competition
Video content is on the rise, and there are millions of videos out there on platforms such as YouTube for you to analyse and take inspiration from. You will want to take a look at what is already out there to ensure that your video is unique and that it stands out from any other similar videos.

Use the right video editing tool
After filming your video, you will need to edit it before it will be ready to go live. The Biteable video maker tool is perfect for editing your videos, adding soundtracks and making it look professional before helping you to share it across social media platforms.
