Change Video Background: Instead of keeping a static video background throughout the video, you should have an attractive animated background that relates well to the topic of your video. In fact, you should be changing the background depending on the sub-topic you are discussing so that the viewers can process your information visually as well.

If you are speaking directly to your audience on the video to explain concepts, we recommend you use a news background to fit the video topic perfectly. You can find different background from filmstock.

While editing your video in the video editor, you can change the video background to animated backgrounds that are relevant to the topic you are discussing and explaining at any given time in the video.

Add text title: If you are making an educational video where you are continuously speaking and explaining, it is very difficult for the audience to process everything immediately. In fact, they are likely to miss out and unable to distinguish the most important points of the explanation. That is why you need to highlight the main points as you discuss them through text titles.

For example, your educational video should have text titles of all the sub-topics and sub-points as you discuss them. In fact, you can highlight the main points as you explain for the human brain to focus as well as remember them going forward. The titles should be visually appealing as well as distinctive to leave a long-lasting mark on the brain.

Add transitions: Apart from playing a different background and adding text titles for different sub-topics, you should add beautiful transitions as you move along from one sub-topic to another sub-topic. This is essential in an educational video for the brain to possess your change of topic so that it can start afresh and focus on the new topic. Moreover, transition effects are visually appealing, and it increases the engagement quotient in an educational video.
