Idea - How To Video Microvideo DB
I had a weird idea the other day which I thought I might share. It is a slightly different take on the video how to idea that is getting quite common on the web now.
The idea is that instead of one long video that covers a process beginning to end each step is split into a seporate video and can then be strung together like a sentence.
As an example something like adding a CName to DNS requires:
This could all be captured as a single video then sliced up into the little parts, in future if you wanted to make one about adding an MX record you would only need that little bit to include in the video sentence.
- Opening DNS snapin
- Expand Server tree
- Expand Foward lookup zone
- Right click and select add
- select CName
- Type in cname and enter
This same method could be used for all sorts of programs but would require a queueing database that was easily searchable and easily buildable upon to create the how to sentences. Web based of course :)
Such a project would take time and effort but could yeild extremely fast and accurate customized how to videos to help people solve problems if the content was there.
Anyhow, just an idea that I thought I would share incase it inspired anyone.
