Sorry for my late reply. I am seeking ideas for the kind of content I can put together for an e Learning portfolio.   The kind of content might come from ideas I get from other professionals suggestions.

I've been dying for a question like this! I take it you want to create 8 or 10 distinctly different videos featuring topics you could show a  Adobe Reader potential customers? First, if the portfolio should feature YOUR acumen using Camtasia and iTunes creating interesting, easy to follow videos.and Discord

Ed,

Great videos. Your Excel skills are through the roof!

If I could make one suggestion: Your prime numbers video and your permutations video both show about 29 rows of the Excel sheet, which is comfortable for the viewer. But the polynomial video shows about 48 rows, which is a bit small for my old eyes. For the first 3 minutes of that video, all your content is on the upper-left side of your screen, which would be easy to zoom into to make everything easier to read. Later on, if you could pan back and forth between the left and right sides, then pull back to show the whole thing, you might help our comprehension.

But great videos none the less!

I wouldn't disagree with your suggestions, but I did find it a lot easier to view by using the selector at the bottom right to pump it up to 1080p then expand to full screen. At the default of 540p it's almost illegible but at the higher res with full screen it's quite crisp.

Nonetheless, as a general principle zeroing in on the action is, as you said, a very good idea.

I'm amazed that ExpertsExchange is still around actually; at one time it was the most widely loathed site on the Internet because its pages would choke Google search results with "teaser" answers which often weren't actually answers. This led to it being one of the most blocked sites on the Internet at one time. I still have a shortcut that I used to use to actively block it from search results, though in a rare example of customer responsiveness Google largely torpedoed the site on its own initiative. I still see the occasional search result from it, but they're rare.

That aside though, it appears that when you upload a video EE will create downsized versions of it as well. This isn't necessarily a bad thing since 1080p can be overkill in some cases and it just wastes bandwidth. By default is seems to show the 520p resolution but you can change that yourself by just clicking at the bottom right of it. (Incidentally, YouTube has a resolution selection option in roughly the same place). The video can be put into full screen via the double headed arrow at the bottom right:
