A project that I have been working on throughout the early part of this year for Interface Magazine has just gone live.
I have spent several months of this year researching and writing reviews for all of the videos on this site. The aim of the project is to provide teachers with an easily accessible and searchable resource for software tutorials. Providing teachers with a series of tutorials that are easily digestible and sequential based around a software programme is something about which I am passionate and for the last couple of years I have been creating videos tutorials to do just that. The Lookah site is a natural extension of this passion. One of my tutorials helped someone in the US successfully get a job, so clearly there is a need for the service and there is evidence that video tutorials work.
The tutorials that are currently on the Lookah site are based on a survey that Interface magazine asked of its readers, plus a few of my own favourite software programmes of course, plus a few that I created. The result is what you see here and it is not an exhaustive list. It is up to you to make this resource work. If you need a specific tutorial on a specific software platform, I can create this for you, so please let me know. The Lookah project is phase one of a two phase project. Check the site out and let me know what you think.
The project and the concept is something that I am very proud of. It is a service that I think teachers will find invaluable and the aim is to continue to add to it. Take some time to check out Lookah and let me know what you think.
