Online skill building - a great offering to library patrons


One of the fastest ways to help patrons use our resources is the short video tutorial.  People like to be able to learn in their own time and at their own speed.


Not everyone wants to attend a physical class. That's why, as part of our Makerspace initiative, we are thinking about expanding our own stable of video tutorials as well as perhaps offer a "seat" on Lynda.com for our patrons. Though the costs make it a premium offering, we think that, for the yearly cost of a research database, we could offer our patrons a powerful skill-building service.... Something to think about....

If you are interested in developing your own screenshot-based video tutorials, we have found the tools at Techsmith to be handy.
