Hello My name Is Francisco and this is my create brainstorm reflection. This reflection is a reflection of a project I did at my school, On How to make a good tutorial.
We been doing learning how to make a good tutorial and I feel like I did good with my tutorial. My tutorial is “How to make a video using QuickTimePlayer and upload it to youtube”. I think that the topic wasn’t to hard because I am now use to making tutorials because I have a youtube account, But we didn’t learn just how to make a good tutorial. We learned how to make a video with good quality and take time and do a good job.
We are doing this tutorial because the 7th graders did the same topic and 6 grade decided to the same as 7th graders did last year. So we made our own tutorials and we were able to decided what our topic of the tutorial could be. We watched the 7th graders tutorials to see what we need to do so we can have a idea of what kind of work we need to get our hands on. The work we needed to do is make a tutorial of any topic.
We did this a few weeks ago and we most of us are happy about our tutorial. We did this by using “QuickTimePlayer ” and making a video using the record options and editing it after. We got some help from our teacher like we asked questions and when is the due date of the tutorial. Most of us used something called “QuickTimePlayer” Which every computer should have.
I learned that iMovie can help you make awesome tutorials and videos. I am starting to use iMovie and sometimes ScreenFlow editing tools. I learned how to do some things in iMovie like how to cut music and take bits of songs and put it in videos, I learned upload a video to iMovie. I learned a lot of things during this project and I think the project was very useful for the future. Something I learned that was obvious is how to make a good tutorial because there can be a lot of bad tutorials out there that get no views.
I am very happy with my tutorial because I took time to make it, I am happy the editing and with the quality. I think the viewers would understand how easy It is to upload a video to youtube using a QuickTImePlayer recording. One of the things I don’t like is the humor I tried to put on kind of failed. But I think the tutorial was ok as long as It made sense…. Which It did.
How I learned how to use QuickTimePlayer Is I explored my apps In my school computer and I found something called “QuickTimePlayer ” so I tried using It and found out it was used to make screen recordings which made me proud I found something that could help me In the future. iMovie was something that I was never good at until this project which made me explore iMovie and today I know how to fast forward and a clip and even cut music. So that means I know the basic tools.
Looking back at my draft I was amazed how my tutorial changed and became much more better. I realized that I didn’t split clips which means I went for one go and If anything had distraction that would be in the video unless I edit it. I also learned that I was talking my way to how to do it. So that makes editing bits out and making the tutorial harder. But In my final I used extra editing like fast forwarding and things like splitting clips or at least pausing the video so you can be like I need to say this and things.
I found this project really fun do I got a normal mark for it, I hope I can have a project that has to do with tutorials again or soon next year because tutorials are useful for viewers and it can help people In topics or even everyday life.
From watching Toshi’s tutorial I learned how to embed a tutorial to a blog which I will try to do later on when I post videos on blogs. I think that It is similar to sharing a video In a blog post but Instead you need to have It in your desktop. From watchingchristopher’s tutorial I learned how to add widgets to your blog and get more views. I think that the widget tutorial was useful because It helps you add things to your blog. And last, Daiki’s tutorial made me learn that I could be creative and use pet bottles and other junk Items instead of a net.
This is my tutorial I made …
