In technology, we have been working on making our own tutorial since the beginning of March. My tutorial is “How to Make Brownies”. To see the steps I did before making the tutorial (filming, editing etc.) look at this post →here. After we finished our tutorial, we did the Self & Peer Assesment Checklist and uploaded it on Youtube. This is the tutorial I made 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!
If you watched my tutorial, please do this survey:↓
My tutorial connects to the following criterias:
- Finished Product
- Music (Background Audio)
“Title”, connects because my title for the tutorial tells what it is about.
“Distractions”, connects because I thought there are no distracting background noise and also the background audio is not too loud.
“Zoom”, connects because the camera is zoomed in and it is focused.
“Pace”, connects because I thought I spoke in a good pace and it is not too fast and not too slow.
“Finished Product”, connects because I showed the brownie which is the finished product at the start.
“Background Audio”, connects because the music matches my tutorial and it is not too loud and not too quiet.
For extending my thinking, I watched three people’s tutorials who were in my grade. The tutorials are Ayaka’s, Eileen’s, and Ayana’s. I learned a lot of things and got ideas. I learned that having subtitles makes it easy to understand and it will be more accurate. Also, using simple shapes will make it easier to draw because everyone is used to it than complex shapes. If the music is catchy and upbeat, the audience will be more interested. Also if the title is unique and interesting, it will catch more attention. I got the idea of using subtitles, and using catchy, upbeat and happy music.
I am still wondering how to do a Picture in Picture. I still find it challenging to choose the music that matches and also the filming.
In conclusion, I enjoyed and had fun making the tutorial and I want to make one again. I need to improve on filming, and editing. I should have put subtitles and made it easier to understand for the audience. This unit taught me what is a good tutorial and how we make a tutorial. For example, I learned that planning first will make it better and to plan, we could use storyboards.
