Dear Fellow Crafters,
Is a video tutorial better than a written explanation?
Personally, I think both methods help crafters. A video gives a good overview and the written “pdf” gives the crafter specifics without having to play the video again. Also a video puts the project in a “3D” mode – you can see the project up close from different angles. There are other benefits to using a video to learn a new technique. If you’re a visual learner, you can see the project unfold.
Video tutorials are very popular now and there are hundreds of subjects available. Most videos are short with specific instructions. If you need more products in order to make your item the video presenter will show you the package so you will know what to buy.You can skip unnecessary parts of the video and watch important portions over and over again.You can save the video!
Now, if you like to read instructions rather than see videos there are plenty of books and articles either on your local library or book store shelves or on-line. Written instructions are handy when buying products because you don’t always have your tablet with you.
So, what do you think?? How do you learn?? I would love to hear from you. Please comment below.
