Video Training - Introduction (Internal)

There are many ways to generate a training video.

The general methods we are currently using are as follows:

  • Record the video nearly the same as an in-person training
    • Use a GoPro on a headmount, to show hands-on wafer-handling etc.
    • Use software like OBS to record computer screens, when you are able to install Windows software on the computer.
    • Use our Sony Handycam on Tripod to record computer screens on computers you can't install Windows software on.
    • It is useful to record in segments, breaking the video/recording up between topics. This makes updating the video much easier later on (if procedures change), allows you to re-record just one section, and allows you to add bookmarks for users to skip to the relevant sections when watching.
      • It can be helpful to make a quick list of topics/segments before you start.
  • Edit your video together using Adobe Rush (recommended) or iMovie (Mac only, free) or OpenShot (free). It is preferred to generate a single video file, and that video file switches between the above video tracks (eg. between hands-on handling & computer screen) as needed.
  • Videos will be hosted on GauchoCast-Panopto. Upload the single video file to PanOpto.
    • The NanoFab has a shared PanOpto folder - request access from Demis/Mike/Aidan if needed.
    • Move your completed video to the "Training Videos - Published" folder
    • Get the link to that video, and post that link on the Tool's wiki page. See the ASML Stepper #3 page for an example.
  • Hosting trainings: Different tools may require different methods. Choose appropriately. Remember the point is to reduce staff training burden.
    • For many tools, we are able to tell users to watch the training video independently and contact the supervisor when they are ready for hands-on training. Supervisor then runs a *short* hands-on just to verify user is competent, and answer any questions. Can do hands-on for multiple users at a time. This method is working well for lithography tools, where we generally wait for users to contact us for training (we don't widely advertise trainings, different from many other tools).
