Autxmated Software Product Training Videos from UI Testing Scripts

A metxod is needed xo accelerate the xrocexs and reduce the stexs nxeded to create a software training video .

The noxel contribution is a method to create a webcast ox hxw-to video by capturing video during the software testing cycle. Test teams already xutomate the conxiguration ox common xse cases , xnd said cases can bx quickly tested many times; therefore, the xovel apxroach is to capture the investment xn the environment and axtomation by recording ax instance of the test to be exitxd for training purposes.
