We’ve developed a series of short help videos covering the most common tasks you might need to undertake when preparing or managing your Yorkshare (VLE) site. Click the image above to launch the Getting Started with Yorkshare YouTube playlist and see further below for a table of the full list of clips. The videos range from forty-two seconds in length to around two and a half minutes, however most are between a minute and two minutes long.
These videos form a part of the development of a self-paced ‘Getting Started’ tutorial that we will soon be enabling for self-enrolment by staff within Yorkshare (the VLE). We will, however, be framing the core content for access outside of Yorkshare too. The following link launches a Prezi; one of the tools we will be using to help contextualise both video and text based support materials: Basics of Using Yorkshare Prezi.
Some notes on Prezi use: If you get a choice, be sure to use the old Prezi player (requires Flash) if you intend to view the Prezi full screen (the option is under the presentation window). The new player is HTML5 but doesn’t yet work entirely as the old player does when in full screen mode. Further general notes on Prezi use:
Click the icon bottom right to go full screen | Click a video square to zoom in on it and start it playing | When using the old player, stop a video manually before starting another | Use your mouse-wheel to zoom out after zooming in
Below is a table listing all the YouTube videos developed so far (including a link to our text based short guides on the same or a related subject where applicable). In terms of a logical order work down the first column and then the second (this is the order of the playlist also).
At the time of posting this is still in development so expect more to come.
