Here is a link to our video...  Privileges and Responsibility
We are building a series of educational videos focused at the skilled nursing facility.   I just feel that there are so many features in Camtasia it would be helpful to have someone who uses the program a lot to give suggestions on how ours could be made to look more professional...any suggestions would be appreciated....

Hello - I'd be willing to have a look and offer suggestions. However, I'm getting errors with two different browsers, may not be able to access for security reasons or validity of a player link. Do you happen to have a screencast.com account that would be easy to access?

that link is dead.
DNS Issues.
You might want to try uploading it to either YouTube, or some other video hosting place, and then provide the link here.

Sorry, the page you were looking for does not exist or is not available. We performed a web search for “HTTP Partner 4 Growth Temp Cartoon Training Privilege Responsibility Privilege Responsibility R3 08 04 2017 Player HTML Privilege Responsibilty Play Cartoon Training Temp” and here's what we found.

3 browsers; what's the secret for success Dubie?

I do not know but I get it to play in Firefox ver. 54.0.1 (64 bit) on Windows 7.

Chrome and Internet Explorer though is a no go.  As you state DNS issue.

Ok I think this is the issue.

The address is off.

It needs .com after the site url

Try this

Thanks for sharing your project and soliciting input. Here are a few suggestions:

1. If you have text on the screen, it should match the narration. I found myself trying to read and listen to two different things at the same time, which is difficult.

2. Bullet list text is probably better left justified than centered; some animations would also liven it up.

3. Transitions where another line of text is added by swapping out entire graphics would be easier on the viewer if recorded in PowerPoint with steady gentle animation as spoken. 

4. Blue text elements over a blue background doesn't invite interest as much as you could with some variance. Don't be afraid to use black or white project backgrounds. Instant contrast...

5. When the cartoons are on screen, introduce movement by slow zoom (Ken Burns) or similar. They should also change more often.

6. If you have a finite number of cartoon panels, try to find additional  visual elements to match the narration. (sad new resident lady still on screen while talking about how the place or workers are portrayed, etc. when a simple newspaper or TV graphic advances the story)

7. The cartoons are well done; perhaps a single word or phrase might underline intentions.

I respect the subject matter and what is provided to families and individuals in need.
