YouTube has got to be the most awesome learning tool ever created for visual and audio learners. I’ve posted the fifth on a 22 part series by Alan Quandt – Building a Web Site Start to Finish (http://www.thedigitalcraft.com ). Not only do you learn how to build a website using Dreamweaver, but he also shows how to use Photoshop to create the images you need.
I started out building a fairly complex (read “busy”) website for my new endeavor Book Usher. Today, I started over again and made it simple. and straightforward or so I hope. I’ve learned all kinds of neat tricks from Alan.
The first five episode have mostly been about Photoshop. Now, he’s just moved on to Dreamweaver.
I have to give YouTube credit for something else – well not too much credit but that’s my fault not theirs. I speak of my golf swing. Last year, I went out by myself after years of hacking about. Armed with my Iphone, I dialed up a very nice simple series of lessons. I would watch a lesson, drop a golf ball or two and try to do what I’d just watched. Eventually, I got to the point where I was doing pretty much what I’d seen on the video.
Is there anything that you can’t learn or better yourself using YouTube?
What a wonderful tool for self-improvement and education.
