Talking Point Help Videos
We have recently made four short films, which explain how to register on Talking Point, and give an overview of the forum's main features.
The films are:
How to register on Talking Point
Key features of Talking Point
How to post a message on Talking Point
Your Talking Point Profile
These are the first Help Videos that we've produced for Talking Point; at the moment we are piloting these films and would appreciate your feedback.
It would be really helpful to hear your views about the Help Videos, for example:
* what you find useful
* what you think could perhaps be improved, and
* whether there are other topics you think should be covered in future films.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts about the films, or you can contact me via Private Message on Talking Point, if you'd prefer.
We hope these films will be of benefit not only to new users of Talking Point, but also to our more established members, who will hopefully find the odd tidbit of useful information in them, too. :)
