StrandVision Digital Signage has added a YouTube Channel to offer short, targeted, information sessions and tutorials on StrandVision’s cloud-based service, specific electronic signage features and general digital signage topics, including installation, content design and visitor/employee communication recommendations.
These training clips are targeted to individual digital signage topics and are designed for both resellers and customers to complement StrandVision’s scheduled Webinar training sessions that offer a broad overview of StrandVision’s capabilities and how to use the company’s online portal Content Management System (CMS). Pages on the StrandVision Web site also include links to specific training videos, when appropriate.
“The StrandVision 30-minute Webinars are designed to help them utilize more of the system with a minimal investment in time,” commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “Plus the always available YouTube clips are designed to further enhance StrandVision's ease-of-use by offering step-by-step demonstrations of genera- to-advanced functions including videos, databases, and importing from the Web.”
The StrandVision Basic Digital Signage Webinars are free of charge to anyone and scheduled on the second Tuesday at 12:00 Noon Eastern and the third Thursday at 3:00 PM Eastern of each month.
Registration is at: http://www.strandvision.com/digital_signage_webinars.html. More advanced
Webinars on various topics are also frequently scheduled and can be found on the same sign-up page. Once registered for free electronic signage training, email reminders with instructions on how to connect to the meeting are emailed a day and an hour before the Webinar.
The YouTube videos are available on demand at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbjITZOpvcs8OBNTMAw1A-A.
