Month Of Screencasts 2007
The goal is that each video will go into one subject in some depth, to help educate new users about Ubuntu. We will cover a wide range of topics which should answer some questions that new users to Ubuntu often ask. We aim to go into enough detail to be interesting, hopefully without being baffling or boring.
We can of course not go into infinite detail on every topic, there are limits to our time and resources. So don't expect these to teach kernel hacking or C programming, but there should be enough information to get a new user from "zero to hero" in one month. That's the goal anyway.
Each screencast will be made available through the Ubuntu Screencast site in three sizes and two formats (OGG and Flash). The screencasts are licensed under the permissive Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 License, so you're free to modify, pass on, sell or otherwise distribute them so long as the attribution to us stays intact.
Update: We now have feeds which work in popular podcasting clients. Use the links in the box on the top right "MoS2007 Podcast Feeds" with your favourite podcatcher. This has so far been tested with hpodder and miro (previously known as democracyplayer.
Update: We are behind schedule, but still plan to put out 30 screencasts, although they won't all be finished by the end of September. We are hoping they will all be available before Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy) ships in October.
