Tildee - Craft and Share Tech Tutorials

Tildee is a service for creating multimedia tutorials on anything you want to teach. I tried the service a couple of years ago. This evening I revisited it to see the new updates to Tildee. Tildee still publishes your tutorials as webpages with individual URLs. Tildee provides a template and platform for sharing tutorials with others. Your tutorials can include any combination of text, screen captures, Google Maps, and videos.

The best feature of the updated Tildee interface is the option to drag and drop sections of your tutorials into order. Let's say that just before publishing your tutorial you realize that you forgot to include a step. Just write out that step then drag it into the proper spot in your tutorial.

Applications for Education
One of my former colleagues used to have her students create short presentations about the software on their netbooks. That assignment was intended, in part, to help the students familiarize themselves with their new netbooks. The assignment was also designed to get students to think about writing clear directions. If you wanted to try this assignment, Tildee could be a good platform on which students could publish their completed projects.

Tildee - Create, Share, and Find Tech Tutorials

Tildee is a good site for creating, sharing, and locating tutorials for all kinds of technology-related things. Tildee provides a template and platform for sharing tutorials with others. Each tutorial you create is assigned a specific url that you can share with anyone. Your tutorials can include any combination of text, screen captures, and videos. Each tutorial that you create on Tildee is assigned a unique URL that you can share wherever you like.

Even if you don't use Tildee to create a tutorial yourself you can still use the site. You can browse or search the gallery of public tutorials to find one suits your needs.

Applications for Education
At the beginning of the school year one of my colleagues gives students the assignment to create short presentations about the software on their netbooks. That assignment is intended, in part, to help the students familiarize themselves with their new netbooks. That assignment could be taken one step further with Tildeee by having students create and share tutorials about the software they use.
