Stories streamlines video creation for everyone with all-new, integrated drag-and-drop storyboarding and video scripting tools

SEATTLE, September 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Screencast-O-Matic, the all-in-one screen capture, video editing and media hosting platform that takes video creation, collaboration and sharing to the next level superior, today presented Stories. Stories is an integrated video planning and creation tool for faster and more efficient video creation. The all-new Stories product integrates storyboarding and scripting into an easy-to-use drag-and-drop video creation tool. Beginners and expert video makers, in education and business, can use Stories to create effective, engaging, and fun videos faster.

Screencast-O-Matic Stories simplifies the creation of quality videos by providing:

  • Easy Scheduling – With Stories, users can start with a text script or add notes, drag and drop sections to rearrange them, and add or insert sections.

  • Speed ​​and Quality – Scheduling videos with the built-in storyboards reduces iterations and produces videos that clearly communicate the desired message faster.

  • Flexibility – Stories works standalone or with the most popular word processing, presentation and multimedia applications. Videos, screen recordings, images, and slides can all be easily added to sections of videos.

  • Collaboration – Video storyboards can easily be shared with teams for feedback and production. Communicating the outline of the story allows team members to better participate and contribute.

Storyboard Videos for Education
Educators are increasingly using storyboards as a tool for teachers and students to create videos. Storyboards can enhance learning and understanding of teacher-created videos and enhance creativity and collaboration for student video projects. Examples include:

  • Flipped Lessons: Developing a theory, presenting the story in context, and explaining the steps in creating software can all benefit from structured videos from visual storyboards.

  • Student video projects: Teachers can use storyboard templates to give students insight and structure for collaboration. Students can unleash their creativity without having to be expert video producers. A storyboard can provide a process to help students improve the way they present their ideas.

  • Interactive learning: Starting with a storyboard, measurable goals and objectives leads to better results. Planning to integrate Screencast-O-Matic’s easy-to-use quiz features into videos provides an effective way to engage students and gauge their understanding and retention of materials. Screencast-O-Matic’s robust analytics feature provides additional information on how best to achieve established goals and objectives.

Storyboard Videos for Business
Business owners, managers, designers and marketers know the value of planning. Storyboards help companies clarify their message, gather feedback, improve collaboration, and ultimately save time and money while creating better content. In HR, marketing, engineering, or operations, storyboards can be used by any employee to save time and stay on message when creating high-quality videos.

  • Product presentation: Good explainer videos require a well-thought-out plan to introduce a product and engage customers. A storyboard allows the creation of a plan that takes into account an audience and the value proposition to be communicated.

  • Marketing videos: Creating website marketing and social media placement videos is similar to the process of producing an advertisement. There is a target audience, a need to convey a specific brand message, a desire to build excitement, and a need for a call to action. Stories provide a great structure and set of tools to accomplish these goals faster and more efficiently.

  • UX designs: User experience designers use video to present design concept walkthroughs that can include sketches of potential designs, interaction models, research data, and more. A video storyboard is a great way to create videos and showcase how users would experience products, especially for remote teams.

  • Training and compliance videos: HR should produce standard onboarding, training and compliance videos that may also include interactive components, such as quizzes, to meet regulatory requirements. A video storyboard can save time for creating these types of videos, and archiving storyboards as templates can improve speed in an ever-changing training environment.
