Making and sharing video tutorials

Learning new software tools takes a lot of time, so I always take the opportunity to learn some basic tricks by looking over the shoulders of my colleagues while they handle the interface. But often my colleagues are as unknowledgeable as I am. The obvious solution then is video tutorials. There are thousands hundreds of them if you want to learn Photoshop or how to create your WordPress blog and so forth. But I haven’t seen any specialized service for biomedical researchers before. Now Bioscreencast has created a video tutorial library where you can watch (presently 128) videos that tell lots of useful stuff — for example, I just learned how to create a RSS feed for continuously showing PubMed search results on my customized ig-Google page. Nifty!
