Video recordings help customers and colleagues "learn the ropes." In this blog post I will show you how it just got easier to create video content and publish it with Office 365.
Many of us have attended Lync Online meetings or watched webinars recorded by Lync. But have you used it to create and publish training, induction or demo videos? Video recordings provide companies with the potential to use Office 365 to create their own instruction websites and training videos. It's easier and quicker to watch a video, then to read and depend on screenshots.
Lync and SharePoint Online make it easier to create training videos and embed them within How To and Induction articles to help your organization. Some of the new features that improve video recording and publishing are:
To demonstrate how easy it is to publish the video content, I’ve created a Blog subsite off my Team site. It could just as easily be a Wiki site.
By enabling these features, the site now has an Images asset library which can be used to store my video. The libraries default name is Images, but it can contain video and audio and can be renamed.
Whey I finish my recording, Lync renders it to an MP4 file.
Let us know below in the comments if you've created something similar for your organization. Or if you plan to use my method, post your comments and get in touch if you want assistance.
