Spoken Tutorial

Spoken tutorial is a recording of an actual session. As a result, it can capture every step that is required to explain an activity. This completeness, combined with an accompanying audio-video tutorial makes the spoken tutorial the best way to document and to explain a software or a computer based activity. Creating a document in any other way is inefficient. A ten minute video, for example, can have about 100 screen transitions. Imagine the work involved in taking screen shots and using them to create a text document, say a pdf file. The size of the video created is of the order of 1MB per minute, for a 800×600 screen size in normal resolution. This allows about ten hours of instruction to be packed in a CD. It also allows transmission through low bandwidth networks.

The Editorial Team of News & Events joins the entire Vidya fraternity in extending hearty appreciations to Mr Arun on this commendable accomplishment that upholds technological literacy and develop the employment potential of Vidya students !!!
