I just recently taught my course on “Building Spreadsheets That Last”.
In it, I actually show a video that was written by Ross on Workbook Structure protection. I like Ross’s video, as it shows some interesting tricks with the features. You can find Ross’s video on YouTube here. (Sorry Ross, tried to point it to your blog, but can’t find the post there any more!)
A while back, my RibbonX co-author Robert also recorded some videos.
I’m curious to know what people think of videos in the training scope. Do you prefer books, videos, forums, other things, or a combination of all of the above when you are learning?
I’ve always been someone who likes to get a book in their hands (or a whitepaper), then try to get into things by hand. As I find myself teaching, though, I’m starting to wonder if delivering a more complete package is in order. I already give a live presentation, with a case study to work through, but I’d also like to write up an e-Book of my most popular course. The big question is… should I be also contemplating adding video to it? Does anyone like that option, or is it just a move toward being pirated?
