Currently, eLearning is an essential part of teaching at universities and it is also applied increasingly in secondary schools. For teaching purposes, various learning management systems (LMSs) are usually used. These systems are often used rather as mere data storages of text documents and presentations that are not multimedia, interactive and do not take advantage of the potential of these LMSs. One of the possible ways of expanding and enriching teaching materials by multimedia and in some cases even the interactive tools will be presented in this paper. Video-tutorials are the tool that is currently easy creatable and very useful tool, but also often a disregarded one. The article will present best practices for the complete production of custom video-tutorials in the form of screen recording and sound, i.e. preparing, recording, editing, effects, and distribution. Subsequently, specific recommendations, experience and results from the practice of using such video-tutorials for teaching several courses focused on teaching of programming at different levels will be summarized.
