Whiteboard videos have become a popular way to convey information, present arguments, and explain complicated concepts. These videos mimic stop-motion capture animation, and often involve drawing as well as writing.

Whiteboard videos can be created in various ways, depending on what you want your finished product to look like and what technical skills you have. On one end of the spectrum, you can film yourself writing and drawing on an actual whiteboard and then edit the video to your liking using one of the free tools on the Video Editing tab. You don't actually need a white board -- poster board, paper...anything you can film yourself writing one. Can't draw -- you can use cutouts. On the other end of the specturm, you can create the effect of a whiteboard video without using an actual whiteboard or any actual filming using a program like VideoScribe (below).
If you are going to film writing/drawing on an actual whiteboard, there are a number of things you should plan for, including:
