Site Review: Skill Feed

Site URL: SkillFeed.com

Content:  This is a video-tutorial site that teaches users how to accomplish specific design, photography and video tasks in a variety of computer programs.

Design:  “Simple” best describes this site, and that is a compliment. Users don’t have to wade through complicated links or navigation to get to the content they want. After arriving at a desired video, the embedded player offers a seamless stream with solid picture quality.

Review:  Instructors from around the world submit video tutorials for review by the SkillFeed staff. The group then makes the best tutorials available to users. Instructors are paid for video content based on the popularity of their clips. The stated goal of the site is helping people improve their job skills, while helping instructors find a broader audience.

SkillFeed is great for teachers in nearly every academic discipline. English teachers can learn how to make dynamic lessons with custom images and video, while art instructors can discover tips for adding extra dimensions to student projects. While each video shows how to accomplish a specific task, users can apply the methods in any number of different ways.

Bottom Line:  It comes with a $19-a-month price tag, but for those who can afford it, it’s worth it.
