This quick, easy-to-follow course teaches you how to use one of the most popular video animation services (Powtoon) to create effective presentation / explainer videos you can use to help promote your site or products. It's no secret that videos bring personality to your site and they drastically improve conversions. So why not get a leg up on your competition by creating effective videos that will make your site more engaging and help you market your products and services. Powtoon's animation software is easy to use, and the final presentation is so polished that your audience and competition will think you hired a professional to create the video for you! Shhhhhh! Just don't tell anyone your little secret! :-) The course begins with an overview of the Powtoon service interface and then explains how the timeline feature works so you can begin to animate your presentations. There is also one lecture that will show you how to create a voiceover for your presentation using Audacity. Two lectures are dedicated to creating and publishing your presentation from scratch. The course concludes with additional tips and offers some exercises to help you brainstorm for your own videos.
