How to Create Great Looking Whiteboard Videos – Review of VideoScribe

For the longest time, I’ve looked for an easy way to create whiteboard videos like this one.

I’ve always loved watching these videos even if I have no interest in the message. There’s something captivating about watching someone sketch these scenes out.

This week, I finally discovered a program that will allow me to create these types of drawing videos, even if I had no drawing ability (which I do) or technical know-how.

The program is called VideoScribe by Sparkol. You can download a free trial at

You can see just how easy it is to use this software in the video below.

    The first image used is from a video created by the team at for a TEDx conference and was not created with Sparkol’s app. There didn’t seem to be a credit for using the image.

    Sparkol’s app is great for DIY scribe videos. The end result is an animation rather than an actual hand-drawn video, which I think loses a lot of what makes this type of video interesting and authentic. But it’s a he’ll of a lot cheaper than having professional creatives design the right images for your message.

       @EricOakland Eric, you’re right. While it may not be live video of a hand drawing like the one done by TrueScribe, you can still make it a little more authentic by creating and uploading your own drawings if you prefer. Definitely the more affordable option.
