Sparkol Academy

From novice to ninja with our customized training

Looking for a tailored training solution to take your team's video skills to the ultimate level? We thought so! Let us introduce Sparkol Academy.

Consider Academy your one-stop-shop to learn everything about engaging audiences with video, compelling storytelling techniques, and creating powerful videos with Sparkol's video creation software, VideoScribe. We created the Academy to teach business teams how to maximize their VideoScribe subscriptions and unlock their creation potential.

Choose from our Introductory training, Advanced training or our completely customized Scribe Clinics - but more on that later. In no time, you and your team will be adding video production to your resume!

Introductory training

Our introductory training is perfect for teams with little or no experience in video editing. You’ll complete our workshops with the know-how of a VideoScribe pro, learning best practises (and their tips and tricks) to truly make your videos WOW-worthy.

This is a customized solution designed to meet your specific requirements, and can cover various topics including planning your project and your layout, adding visual and audio content, animation techniques, controlling camera movement and exporting and publishing your video.

Advanced training

Our advanced training is aimed at teams with the basic skills mastered, and now want to learn Jedi-level tricks and techniques to create videos in new styles with different effects. Our instructors demonstrate a variety of advanced techniques and ideas for you to experiment in your own scribes.

This is a customized solution that can cover topics such as advanced camera transitions, creating different themes, creative animation effects, creating your own drawable images and editing your audio.

Scribe clinic

Our scribe clinics are in-depth workshops where your problems, challenges or ideas are worked through in real-time. Rather than learning through our course exercises, our instructors will work through the specific problems you face.

It could be you have a concept for a video but need support creating the storyboard. Or, maybe you're working on a scribe but are stuck and need interesting effects and styles. Our instructors will help you achieve the solution, while you learn the process to apply the techniques yourself in future.

Individual training

If you’re after training resources for an individual rather than team, our courses on Udemy are the answer! Our first course, VideoScribe Fundamentals Training: Creating Animated Videos, is a comprehensive guide full of expert tips and tricks from our Head Trainer, Jonny. Our VideoScribe Advanced Training: Mastering Whiteboard Animation is Jonny’s second course, tailored to the more advanced VideoScribe users, full of creative techniques and tips.

Who we work with

"The in-person training delivered by Sparkol Academy was wonderful! A combination of theory and practical exercises. This worked really well and built the confidence in video creation while helping staff get more out of using VideoScribe."
