How to create an app tutorial with an iPad in 5 steps

This is a brief example of how to create an app tutorial with an iPad.

Creating content is possible with any iPad. In just a few hours using simple resources (such as images, PPT or Keynote and audio files), we were able to create a few tutorials explaining the basic functions of our app. The process is simple, and we decided to share this step by step guide for anyone looking to create their own tutorials.

5 steps to creating an app tutorial using bContext:

  1. Take screenshots of your app, your website, or any images that you will be speaking about in your tutorial.
  2. If all the screenshots are 4:3 (like the ones ones taken with iPads) you can paste them all in PPT or Keynote and then import them as a single file from Dropbox. If the screenshots have different dimensions (like screenshots from a website) you will have to import them one by one and paste them on different pages before recording your session. Check the “how to create a bFile” tutorial for details on how to import files or images.
  3. Start recording a session using your voice and any hand notations to explain what you want for your tutorial.
  4. Once the recording is finished (and you are happy with the overall quality of it) you can add a soundtrack that plays loud for 4 seconds at the beginning and then fades when the narrative starts. While this step is not necessary, it can enhance engagement. Check out “Pitch your startup using Facebook” to hear an example.
  5. Once the editing is finished, you are ready to share. Check the “share bFiles tutorial” to see different sharing options directly from the iPad. You can also copy and paste the html code to embed your tutorials on any page (as we are doing in this post) using the public url for that specific bFile.
