post-page 2.5 Essential Training Videos

responses 2.5 Essential Training at Online Training Library® is a set of training videos by Maria Langer (who also happens to be a professional helicopter pilot) that walk through the setup and use of WordPress as a blogging tool. Sadly, the title of this set of videos might be a bit misleading (though the title does indeed say, I was taken by the version number in the title) since the videos are tailored for blogs and not for self hosted blogs. However, a few of the initial videos are offered for free download and the only option for purchase of the full set is via a monthly subscription for $25 which would give the user access to all the videos on There are plans to sell the videos as a CDROM for purchase but those are not available as of this post.

The videos are aimed towards the basics of blogging and range in topics from setting up a blog on to creating and maintaining posts, pages, categories, adding multimedia, choosing and setting up themes, managing users and participating in the blogosphere.

    I’m actually working on a few flash tutorials for clients to view for keeping their website updated. Very basic. This looks good too …

    I’d pay money to learn in-depth coding and such of the WordPress platform via video – but for basics? You can find tutorials (and yes videos) all over the net.

    Very cool, I started making my own mini screencast tutorials as well.
