Creating Instructional Video with Your Smartphone: 
A Hands-On Workshop

Only 1 spot left: register now!

Location: Cospace (board room) - Click here for directions.

Program Description:

Today’s smartphones are literally pocket-sized production studios. Using only your phone, it’s now possible to capture HD video, edit the footage, add titles and narration, and upload your creation to a video server.

As many learning professionals are discovering, the smartphone’s handiness and powerful production capabilities make it an exceptional tool for quickly and inexpensively creating learning media assets.

In this class, you’ll learn how to shoot, edit, and distribute a short instructional video using only your smartphone and your smart brain.

After completing this class, you will be able to:

  • Produce a video by following a video production process flow
  • Translate your learning objectives into a video shot list
  • Plan a video shoot, anticipate and mitigate potential problems, and spot location opportunities
  • Use your smart phone to shoot the video and record sound
  • Edit the shots to create a cohesive piece
  • Distribute the completed project


  • After registering, you will receive a link to the course blog. Starting January 25, the blog will be updated weekly with example videos, software to pre-load before April, and other information to help you get the most out of this workshop. 
  • This workshop is limited to 15 participants. Payment is required to hold your seat. (If you cannot pay with Paypal, please email programs@austinastd.com.)
  • Please bring your own smart phone to class.
  • Bagels, snacks, juice, coffee, tea and water will be available. We will break for lunch (not provided).
