A supplementary service to the ScreenCastsOnline membership has just been launched – ScreenCastsOnline Academy
The ScreenCastsOnline Academy is not intended to replace a ScreenCastsOnline membership – it’s something slightly different, targeted at a completely different audience.
The premise is that the ScreenCastsOnline Academy will provide packaged sets of tutorials with specific themes. Instead of requiring a membership, the packaged tutorials will be priced as a one off purchase. Pay once, get access to the tutorials via the ScreenCastsOnline Academy website.
First Tutorial Package – Let’s Learn iWork
The first tutorial package has just been published. These are 13 video tutorials covering the current versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote for both Mac and iOS, and repackaged it as “Let’s Learn iWork”.
It’s available for sale now (but check at the end of the post for a discount coupon).
There will be additional tutorial packages eventually, but all the tutorials will be available to ScreenCastsOnline members via the usual ScreenCastsOnline website.
I would like to stress again that these aren’t new tutorials, they are the same as the ones published via the usual ScreenCastsOnline membership – it’s just that they are now available together and in one place and for a single one-off payment.
So I Don’t Need A ScreenCastsOnline Membership?
The ScreenCastsOnline Academy is absolutely not intended as a replacement for a full ScreenCastsOnline membership. It’s still more cost-effective to take out a full standard membership, and the the Academy will only have a fraction of the content available to full members.
But there are a number of people who really don’t want a full blown membership, and the limited selection of tutorials via the Academy along with the one-off purchase price, will probably fulfil their limited needs.
To save any confusion, I’ve created a separate website for the ScreenCastsOnline Academy and will keep it separate from the ScreenCastsOnline Membership site – for now at least.
