Hey, You (Tube)!!!

Current Project: Polishing submissions
Status:Gaining momentum

Are you a person who learns best by watching someone else do the task?

Want to know how to:
  • create a book trailer?
  • do a Microsoft Office mail merge?
  • clean your laptop?
  • fold an origami frog?

People are wonderful; they love to share knowledge. You Tube is, among other things, a vast video library of how-to manuals.  Click on the arrow in the window below for a demonstration.

To search You Tube, just type what you want to learn in the search window and scroll through the results. Although you may run across some results unrelated to your knowledge quest, [Ex. creation of a book cover turned up in my search results for how to create a book trailer] there's an excellent chance you'll find what you're looking for and more. Free classes abound in the You Tubiverse.  

I got started knitting through You Tube.  And I learned some Microsoft Excel basics.

What are you going to learn to do?

Great advice! I do need to create a book trailer or several--and soon!

You Tube is a sometimes forgotten resource for learning how to do things. Just thought I'd bring it front and center.
