Why 10,000 Video Tutorials Suck!

January 25, 2015

learn-to-code

Hi,

I’ve been teaching web design and development since 2003, and I’ve seen all the trends over the years. The current trend in online education, is to flood people with thousands of videos, and claim that’s a great thing!

Thousands of videos on Netflix makes sense, but when it comes to learning web design and development, that sucks!

Why 10,000 video tutorials suck?

Let’s put in a nutshell:

The teacher, really has two jobs:

  1. Filter for the good stuff.
  2. To simplify.

So my job as web design and development teacher, is to concentrate on the important technologies (and to teach you WHY it’s important,) and to make things that are complex, simple.

… If I say that I have ‘thousands of videos to choose from’, I am basically saying that I am not doing 1/2 my job!

With that in mind, I’ve been culling/removing courses for years. I’ve retired countless videos that covered topics that were either no longer important because of the changes in the market (ex: Flash) or because new updated courses took their place.
