"Method of failed"
Here with I am sharing my audition video of Pluralsight which I submitted to become an author. Unfortunately I couldn't make it but it's now matter of few months after which I can reapply again and hopefully become an author for Pluralsight.
Despite this failure, my experience with Pluralsight acquisition editor and curriculum team was quite inspiring for me. Initially I thought that only learning I would get from recording the audition video would be of creating meaningful slides, voice over and explaining the code under 10 mins with nice storyline. However, it started with the learning of Camtasia studio. Video editing. Something that I did 10 years back in college days! Followed by hours of recording sessions and retakes. Then came the submission of the first version of the audition. Got very constructive feedback from the acquisition editor. Back then, the only tough improvement part for me was learning of voice inflection techniques as I was talking monotone through out the video. Fortunately, Bhagyashree came to rescue and tutored me for some voice inflection sessions. They mostly went like this.
And finally, I could submit 2nd version of the audition. I always felt that what I have done is perfect. But then I reached to 2nd round of review from curriculum team. That review ended my journey with Pluralsight for time being but started my other journey to perfect myself as an author and tutor. The precise constructive feedback from the curriculum team has many points I can improve upon when it comes to teaching over video. And I never felt that before! Wow! In this entire two months interaction with Pluralsight team, I only witnessed transparency in communication and high standards for quality & review. Their editors are doing great work. This only excites me to become a Pluralsight author and become part of this community of great people. #Pluralsight #RodePodcaster #Camtasia #1080p #audition
