  • Hi Joshua 

     

    this was something i wanted as well but sadly not able to - so far ! we started a new members group with a learning academy for top tips -  video's made here by creators allows us to teach members how to set up email and privacy settings etc as well twitter and facebook etc 

    pay us a visit at http://shineonms.com or http://shineonms.com/group/newmembers

    • very nice!

    • Yup that's what I'm doing too, although I'm still adding content to mine.

      You can see mine here: http://thehumantouch.ning.com/group/newmemberorientation

      • Janettee, Great idea for a new member orientation group. I will definitely use this idea. 

        Don't you think that a few 30 to 60 second screen casts would make it so much easier to understand? So where are the Ning guides?, I wonder. If you find any please let me know. 

         

        • I'm glad you like it:)

          Yes, that would be helpful, but I just don't have the ability to do this (I've tried, but can't get it to work out for some reason)... And Ning doesn't have any that are ready-made:( It would be nice if Ning created some generic tutorials for the various features (blogs, forums, photos, etc) that those of us who don't mind being associated with Ning could use... But I haven't really found any. If there are any (maybe 1-2), they would most likely be either on here in the Videos section, or in the "help" section of Ning.com.

          • Following your example, I have just added a new member orientation group to my network and started to make up my own tutorials. Ning is pretty intuitive but there are some tips that can radically enhance a member's experience and value.

            So once again, thanks for pointing the way to a great way to help new members :)  

            • You're welcome:) Glad to be able to help!

  • Joshua there are a # of videos here at Ning or on YouTube which may assist you.  I've posted two below but feel free to surf and see what you can find........ or do a 30-day FREE trial with Camtasia.  http://www.techsmith.com/download/camtasia/default.asp  In one weekend, I uploaded three of my own videos specific to my site alone.  If *I* can do it - anyone can do it; believe me.  Camtasia's step-by-step videos were invaluable although I never could stand the sound of my own voice *lol*   Good luck!

  • I've been wanting to make instruction videos for new members and then wondered:

    Why on earth doesn't Ning have quick and simple instructions for the various features?

    Surely there are some but just not easily found. 

  • Using a popout tutorial video for members will work.
