The demand for 24-7 education and access to online content has seen an increase in the number of available tools for recording computer screen activity with audio for the purpose of producing tutorials and training videos. Popular online learning sites like lynda.com and macprovideo.com feature thousands of videos on practically every technology topic and multimedia application imaginable. Producing good tutorials for music and media technology applications (Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Reason, GarageBand, etc.) is within the technical reach of most instructors and requires simply good planning and a flexible tool set. Modern screen recording programs now provide better options for screen capture resolution, output formats, the ability to pan and zoom in, highlight the mouse movement and cursor, add overlays and text, and even simultaneously record the input from other video and audio sources. More advanced programs include timeline editors with multiple video and audio tracks and allow for highly polished and professional looking videos with more interactivity, slick transitions, title effects, transparency and chroma keying.
