Got an idea for a video? Not so fast! While increased bandwidth and download speeds have helped to make video more popular than ever, it’s not always the best solution. In fact, sometimes a video can actually do more harm than good! In this webinar, Ken Circeo, a Senior Video Producer at Microsoft, will provide critical questions and a logical path to help you determine whether you should create a video for that beckoning issue, or whether to put your time and resources into other content types.  Join us on Thursday, June 4 at 3pm EDT (12noon PDT).

The Technical Editing SIG is excited to host Dr. Bette Frick’s webinar,
“Tools Editors Use” on March 13 from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT. Bette is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker who spoke to a capacity crowd at last year’s STC Summit. Join Bette as she discusses editing tools that improve and speed our editing process.

Bette will be giving away one free copy of PerfectIt software, one of the editing tools she will be discussing during her webinar. This product is being donated by PerfectIt and does not signify a product endorsement by the TE SIG. All attendees of the live webinar will be eligible.

The webinar is free to TE SIG members and a small fee to non-members. To register:  http://stc-techedit.org/Tools+Editors+Use
Hope to “see” you at the webinar!
