howcast: the youtube for how-to videos

ah, jane. you find some of the best things to share with the world.

howcast is showcased in jane’s e-learning pick of the day for feb 7. it is like youtube for how-to videos, an invaluable resource for training and education.

i poked around the categories to see what sort of breadth there was, and i have to say it is quite diverse so far, and the content base is growing.

videos and wiki guides include the likes of:

  • intruducing photoshop’s workspace
  • how to create facebook widgets
  • how to dress for an interview
  • how to use a green screen
  • be green, use fewer paper cups
  • how to set a classic dinner table

and even:

  • how to grow grassin someone’s keyboard
  • how to turn someone into a zombie
  • how to train your cat to play fetch

i’m going to poke around a bit more this week.
