For those of you asking about video lesson tools, below is a collection we published a few months ago featuring some of our favourite tools in this regard. You can use these tools to create instructional videos and tutorials in a simple and easy way without the need for an advanced technology knowledge. All of these tools are web based, no software download is required.
