This is the video companion to the egghead.io Instructor Guide.

Screencasting is hard! There are virtually infinite ways to produce one. For an egghead.io lesson we expect several key aspects to be met. We want to make sure that our lessons have depth and clarity. Clarity is important and starts with the technical aspects of recording your screen and voice. Once we have achieved this objective level of clarity, we dip into the stylistic aspects of recording a lesson. The style is subjective, and the goal of an egghead.io lesson is not to have an army of uniform drone producing flavorless video content for the masses.

Our mission is to make you a badass screencaster. We want to push you to another level. We've found that a small set of standard practices will create an awesome experience for the student, and eliminate frustration as we teach by providing a repeatable pattern for success. It’s not complicated. In fact, it is simple, but it isn’t easy.

This course will show you how to produce an egghead.io lesson. We strive for consistency in style, and these lessons will demonstrate the core elements that create our brand screencasts. Let’s learn how together.

    This is amazing. I've been hunting for a good resource on how to create concise, no-nonsense videos and this hits all the right marks.

    One thing that was not mentioned, which software to use if MacOS is not an option.

    Thank you for this content. It's quite well researched and speaks a lot about instructor's real life experience. I have a bit of mixed feelings about "Stay on Topic". I mean agree with the rationale but giving a little more of contextual information might not be that bad without wasting ton of time.
