Last month, I asked which type of online learning you preferred. As expected, the majority selected written instructions, but the second highest vote was for interactive learning.
I’m still not sure exactly what types of interactive learning people are using. This weekend I experimented with Camtasia Studio, testing its hotspots feature. Users can click on the video, in a specific location, and you can take them to a different spot in the video.
On the Contextures Blog today, I posted a short article on Removing Duplicates in Excel 2007, with a short video.
My goal was to publish an interactive version of the tutorial, but I wasn’t completely satisfied with the result. I need to refine the jumping around process, and probably the audio should be deleted from that section.
Anyway, if you have a strong stomach or good sense of humour, here’s my first attempt at video with interaction. Skip to the 1:40 mark to see the interactive section.
