Google Provides Taxi Service (Part 2)


We bought Adobe Captivate 6 last week for Mac & PC and are still familiarizing ourselves with the menus, options and properties, so the first few vids we put out will look like a Novice is at work.  It looks like a duck and in this case, it is a duck.

We split it into 2 parts and found that the iframe html code to embed in blogger html can be generated at youtube.  Until I did that, it was distressing ugly, even by my less than lofty standards.

Part 1 shows working with Pixlr (a SaaS) from within Younicycle (a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that creates SaaS) and pushing the image to Picasa.  Part 2 shows pulling the image from Picasa into Younicycle, then viewing the image and including within a Print Design.  The use of the Print Design Tool within Younicycle will be covered in much greater detail in future posts. Once again, we are using Google as a taxi service and data-bridge for the file.

Managed to become barely competent with Blogger, YouTube + Adobe Captivate 6 within 1 week.  If there is a lesson to be learned here, it is that even older folks can learn new quasi-skills.  I'm 60 and have never had a bit of IT training or courses, anywhere.

If I can begin to learn new cloud software skills while still maintaining my normal day to day functions, believe me, anyone can.  Labeling yourself as 'too old to learn' is, in the current vernacular, lame.
