Video: Introduction to the WordPress Dashboard

Posted by on Oct 1, 2009 in WordPress Videos | Comments Off on Video: Introduction to the WordPress Dashboard

Today marks the launch of a new series of videos (well, our first series, actually) on how to use WordPress.

These videos come out of a WordPress site build that we’re in the process of completing for a K-8 school. The user-base is quite diverse and with differing levels of comfort with technology. Part of my bid for this job included the creation of how-to screen casts. The one below, “Introduction to WordPress Dashboard” is the first in the series. I’ve got some more in the can, so to speak, and am learning as I do each one, and hopefully getting better as a screencaster.

This video is basic, and intended for a user with no knowledge of WordPress. Subsequent videos will show more complicated scenarios. I hope to cover as many use cases inside of the WordPress admin as I can. I’ll be categorizing these as WordPress How-to, and also by what they cover like, WordPress Posts, etc. Thanks for watching, please send me your feedback so I can continue to hone my screencasting skills.

View the video at YouTube.

Personal Critique: I should probably zoom in more on this one than I do, but I am a fan of the steady camera position. In other videos, where it might be/is more important to do so, I’ll move in for close-ups.
