If you are creating or curating a training course page, please copy/paste the current [[Training_course_template|Template]] page.
Creation of videos can be done with screen capture software.  The following packages have been used by video producers:
* Screenflick (on a Mac) -- Adam Field
* Screencast-o-matic (on Windows 10) -- Lizz Jennings (note: there's a microphone "enhancement" feature on Windows 10 that will make you sound like Darth Vader.  You need to disable this in the Windows 10 sound settings for the screencast to work).
