Premier Pro can do pretty much every amazing thing imaginable and can do it about 5 different ways.
Once you find the way you like to do things with Premier Pro, practice it several times!
If you are doing what I did–editing a bigger video down to manageable teaching size–take the few extra minutes to ‘get micro’ with the frames and sound, cutting and slicing at just the precisely correct moment. I did not always do this and the quality suffered a bit.
After producing an audio file/”podcast” on how to read a type of university policy document called an “RRSDA” or records retention schedule, I distributed the audio to various folks and asked for feedback.
One frequent piece of feedback was that, for new users, it was simply too difficult to follow along without looking at a sample document. The audio alone was fine for people who have already seen policy documents of this type, but new folks needed to SEE and HEAR in order to figure out what I was talking about.
This led me to ThingLink, an educational tool that allows you to embed sound, video, and links into a static document to construct an interactive experience for the user. The result is below.
If this document is not interactive (i.e., nothing pops up as you mouse over the doc), access it instead on ThingLink.
