  1. From here, you can do over twenty types of editing. It can be helpful to categorise these into the following types of editing.
  • Common tasks: This would involve simply changing the title to reflect the new purpose to which you are re-using it for or trimming the video to remove parts that are no longer relevant, as well as adding quizzes to the video to make them interactive. It could also involve correcting the captions.
  • Going further tasks: This could involve adding clips, splicing clips, using the Focus Tool and inserting webpages into your videos.
  • Advanced tasks: This could involve normalizing variables level of audio and adding streams.

The twenty plus different possibilities along with links to guidance are below. It is advised to start with the Common tasks. These require a small learning curve only and are low time intensive.
