Old content can be a treasure trove of value, but you need to brush off the dust and repurpose and refresh it.  

Sometimes that means turning in-person training into an online course or a series of videos, which can be a challenge if you’re brand new to video.  

To chat more about this, Matt Tidwell, CEO of ThinkThru, joins The Visual Lounge. Matt’s company builds customer education programs, including videos and online courses. He shares his top tips on how to get started with video, how to improve your content, and the best ways to translate old content into different mediums for maximum results.
