I just had one of my classes do the first assignment in the Windows 7 Phone for Absolute Beginners video series. Not having a reference document was a major, major issue. “What video did we see that in?” became the issue. I did not remember how to set the focus to the text box so it took me three videos of scanning to find it. I am thinking that they need to take some serious notes as they watch these things. I have started to write up the videos in a document but it takes a lot of time I do not have. Of course having the kids look through the videos trying to find things was not all bad, there was lots of review. I still like the videos but I definitely have to get a reference built for each. Something as simple as the key topics covered in each would probably be enough. It definitely is not going to happen this weekend; there is a lot of fresh snow and the snowboard is crying to be ridden.
