Tutorials are the Teachers of the Future
By : Jesse S. Somer
I know some people
donít even believe that the Internet or World Wide Web exists. They think
that it is an abstract concept and that if asked to show it to someone they
would fail miserably. Well, whether or not it exists I think that the
collective consciousness of humanity is evolving everyday because of the
sharing of ideas on the strange boxes called computers and the electronic
network that connects them.
Every time I go on the Internet these days I am surprised by some new
function that it has for our lives. My most recent discovery has been
on-line tutorials. Tutorials are websites that have been created to help
novices and amateurs alike learn more in their areas of specific interest.
Just about any aspect of life seems to have tutorial sites dedicated to it
that will teach you want you want to know. Of course some knowledge can cost
you money but youíd be pleasantly surprised to see how much information you
can get for free.
For example, I am interested in learning about how to play the guitar. You
should see how many sites are out there, just look up guitar+tutorials on
your search engine (E.g.: Google). Thereís all sorts of great help from how
to change your strings, hold a plectrum properly, and tuning, to learning
complex chord scale systems and finger tapping on your electric guitar.
There are often diagrams, photographs, and intensive explanations relating
to everything you ever wanted to know. Some sites have video and audio to
help drive the lessons home. Life really has changed. In the past you had to
get lessons from a teacher, drive to and from their house or music school,
pay high tuition fees, and buy books on chords and songs. Everything is
downloadable these days, and a lot of it is free.
Web designers could also probably learn a few things from these guitar
tutorial sites. The ways the guitar teachings are expressed are often quite
extensive but done so in a very simplistic manner. Itís a real one, two,
three approach starting with verbal explanations of exercises, followed by
diagrams, and then finally with audio and visual representations. It is an
extremely thorough way of teaching without ever having to meet anyone in
However, a strange phenomenon is the fact that if the site is good, the
visitor does feel a connection to the personality of the creator. Making the
site individual is a major factor in both achieving success and touching a
personal chord (no pun intended) with people. Many of the sites have means
in which you can get direct contact with the site owner thus creating an
opportunity for real personal interaction and tuition. Check out some of
Get connected to the teachers of the future. Find a tutorial that helps you
to follow your dreams.
