A few tools we need.

You could ask the author of that. But I'm thinking.

Video editor (too many to list here.)

there are many videos of how to do that on youtube.
there are many different programs you can use (free and paid) reviewed there also
basis: you run a screen capture program while doing ur tutorial. it saves the output into a video file you can edit and then upload.
