Online Teaching Videos

September 24, 2010

Journaling Reads:
I remember when I wanted to learn how to knit: I had to go find a local yarn store and buy some yarn and needles so the owner would teach me how to knit. She taught me how to cast on and basic knit and purl. And then I had to go back to learn how to cast off. It was so frustrating to have to go all the way to the store each time I made a mistake or had a follow up question.g.

All this was before YouTube and Vimeo and other online video sites came to bloom. This was before people made how-to videos completely for free and made them available to people like me for no reason except their generosity.

In the last few months, I’ve learned how to crochet, knit a hat, make a camera strap, create a cover for my book reader, knit in the round, create a zentangle, and tons of mixed media techniques, all without leaving my house.

The evolution of the internet and streaming media coupled with cheap video camera prices has meant that I can learn any skill at my convenience and I am very grateful for that.
