How to make a tutorial video in 5 easy steps

Step 1: Choose a tutorial video template

Don't know where to start? Use a tutorial video template for inspiration and to give yourself a structural and visual base to build on.

Step 2: Pick an AI presenter

All engaging video tutorials have one thing in common - a human presenter. You can achieve the same effect using a human-like AI presenter to narrate your how-to videos. No cameras needed.

Step 3: Paste your text

Just type or paste your tutorial video script, and our text-to-speech engine will transform it into speech. Did we mention you can do that in 60+ languages?

Step 4: Customize and edit your tutorial video

Even if you started with a tutorial video template, you can customize and edit any element you want. Add text, backgrounds, music, images, transitions, and upload photos and videos. We can go on, but why not just see for yourself?

Step 5: Generate and download

And you're done! Share your new tutorial video with your audience. Stream, download, embed, or share on social media platforms or YouTube - the choice is yours.

Great resource for Training & Communication initiatives

We're using Synthesia to create explainer videos. It's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation.

Frequently asked questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an instructional video, an explainer video, a how-to video, and a tutorial video?

That question almost requires its own blog post and has been debated for a while.

In general, here's how we differentiate the four types:

  • Explainer videos are a type of marketing video, where a company explains its product/service. It's more sales-y in nature than the other three.
  • We see a how-to video and a tutorial video as synonyms - their purpose is to share a step-by-step solution to a problem, e.g. "How to create tutorials" (very meta, we know).
  • Instructional videos are a bit difficult to categorize. In essence, instructional videos do just that - provide instructions. A how-to video is instructional by nature, a training video can be instructional, but isn't always.

Can you make animated videos with Synthesia?

Currently, you can't create animated videos using Synthesia STUDIO. We strive to make video production affordable for everyone, and drawing custom animated characters simply isn't that.

However, you can create a high-quality DIY video online in just minutes, either from scratch or using a professionally-designed template. Customize the template with your background, music, images, shapes, transitions, and video.
