As teacher coming into a class, you in someway dealing a snapshot of culture. Hence you need to gauge what their agreement is on
Survey / Appraisal
Proficiency level: Zero exp / Basic / intermediate
Number of participants
Relevance - what do people want to use it for; and what is their day job
Doing demos or workshop tips
Have a second that alerts you to pause when participants are having problems

Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) — Free
Window capture only records the main software panel and does not include any other panels opened up in the app in you are recording
Video text is blurry
Using After Effects for editing —Rendering takes forever; stick to Premiere Pro or Resolve
Zooming and focus takes too much time; using dissolve is a better alternative as it is time-cost effective
Perfection — wanting every aspect of your first video to be perfect
When starting out; I recommend just publishing a video and not be concerned with the audio or the title animation, or the recording process. Just do it; you will naturally get better and improve those flaws.

*Intermediate users are the most challenging to teach; because they do not show up unless you are well-recognised for your skills and prestige in the field.
Keywords: maximize Audience Retention and user experience signals.
The Why: be entertained or be educated
Have a focus, and identify your target
Most important thing is watch time & engagement
Have an enticing outro
Channels - don't link things
My biggest advice would be: stick to a consistent schedule and give out as much value for free as possible. That's I think what's really helped me. And be prepared for it to take much longer than you think to gain traction. Hope that helps :) — Ben Marriott

I also include a few variations of that word or phrase (Example: “Google search engine optimization”)
Finally, I make a few of my tags other topics that my video covers (Example: “Link building”, “Content marketing”)

Getting started is the most difficult part. We might get too caught up in having a perfect branding, equipment, flawless recording to publish our first video but the truth is that it does not matter as the start. How you present yourself to your audience also factor into building a connection with them; so being social is as an aspect of creativity here. Hence do whatever it takes to get your first tutorial out first so you can build on what you do not know.
Recording tutorials is much more challenging than teaching in-real-life
