I think this is fabulous. It is just what I need as I do have to learn how to do a presentation and there seems to be some good info here. Even though I don't speak Chinese, this is certainly understandable with the direct screen info and the video showing Lijia manipulating and marking the page to make a greeting card. Great - Thanks!

Review of OpenOffice Impress: greeting card, part 1 of 2 (Chinese)

Thanks Horst and ljliu to spend time making this useful tutorial. It can definitely be a good OSS related teaching material for young students in China.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for ljliu
