Each of these elements will be covered in more depth during this series, but this will help you see the big picture in just two minutes.


Preparing your Presentation Slides

Uploading your presentation slides, PDF's and images, changing the order of slides, adding and deleting slides, and entering speaker notes are all part of this look at what you need to know and do before you start recording. Thoughtful preparation will help to make the recording process quick and easy.


Recording a Knovio

Once you've uploaded your slides, it's time to record.  This two-minute lesson reviews all the features of the Knovio Record Screen, and takes you through the process of getting ready to record, adding either video or audio narration, and correcting errors by re-recording.  You'll also learn how to mix audio and video narration in the same presentation.

After publishing your Knovio, there are many things you can do with it: email it, post a link, embed it on a webpage or blog, or share it on social networks like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook among other things. This two-minute lesson introduces you to KVCentral, your personal hub for managing your Knovios.
