Want to know how to create an engaging tutorial video? From demo videos to how-to videos, here are the top tutorial video templates on Envato Elements.
Whether you want to create a how-to or a demo video, a tutorial video template will keep your content succinct and professional. So many of us find it easier to learn and absorb information when we can actually see something and follow along with it, so in a time when it’s never been easier to create video, it’s no wonder that we’re seeing such an increase in video tutorials online.
Put simply, a tutorial video is a quick and easy way to teach or learn. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture, a tutorial video seeks to teach by example, demonstrate steps, and supply the necessary information to complete a certain task. There are a variety of different ways to create a tutorial video:
There’s so much amazing content out there; here are a few people who are really finding success with their how-to videos:

There are lots of great product demonstration videos floating around, but we’re not sure we’ve ever seen one quite like Volvo Trucks – The Epic Split. It may have been around for a while now, but it’s a great example of how you can combine a product demonstration with some creativity and personality. Don’t try this one at home, though!
