New DVD Design for DVD Video Courses.

dvd-small-2Hi,

After years of the same old design for our DVD’s, I’ve finally decided that we needed a fresh new look. I felt inspired, so instead of getting our designer (Ben) to take care it … I broke out my old designers cap and did it myself!

Yes, it’s a minimal style but that’s what’s in today and besides, all that really matters is what is on the DISC.

Note: We haven’t shipped video courses on CD for years, since they don’t have nearly the capacity (as a DVD) to hold all the videos in a course.

All of our videos play on Windows, Mac and even many modern flat panel TVs.

Hope you like!

USB Thumb Drives Now Optional for DVD Courses

usb-thumb-drive

Digital download is not for everyone, so we offer DVD copies of all our courses and course packages. A lot of people demand it!

USB Thumb Drives – now optional.

We’ve been slowly fading out the DVD’s for the last year and had some people complain about it. I was surprised, since USB thumb drives are cool and reusable.

But, that was the problem that I did not consider – people like DVDs because you can’t accidentally delete files on them.

… I should have known better, since I use DVDs to backup my precious data for the long term. Disk drives are great but they can crash and you’ve lost your data. With DVDs, you are good for 10-20yrs.

So now, DVDs are what we send … unless you ask for the USB thumb drives.

Thanks!

Videos Moving from DVD to USB

Hi,

A little video store announcement:

We are now moving away from using DVD’s to mail out the video courses … using USB flash drives instead. So now, when you buy a video course ‘on DVD’, we will actually be mailing you a reusable USB thumb drive.

Why?

1. It’s easier.
2. It’s more flexible.
3. It’s better for the environment.

Until next time,

Mini Video Courses are on the Way!

new mini video courses

Hi!

As some of you may know, buried deep in the KillerSites Video Library, are dozens of videos and mini courses that teach all kinds of cool things like:

  • Creating a Tag Cloud with PHP
  • Form Validation with PHP & JavaScript
  • Build a PHP Login with OOP and MVC
  • CSS List & Navigation

… And there are more.

These are all short courses running 1-2 hrs each, so up until now, we only included them in library and in some of our Complete packages.

Things change …. we just decided to release them on the KillerVideoStore because some people don’t want to subscribe or buy a complete package … and since they are mini courses, the prices will be mini too!

Expect a few courses to hit the store in the next few days.

Simplifying the Store – simple is better than slick.

Hi,

If you’ve come to the store in the recent past, you’ve probably noticed that our layout has changed a lot. We went from very basic to slick, and now we are back to simple – with a few additions.

Simple Sells & Slick Sucks

What we found with the ultra slick layout, was that it just confused people. It looked great, but the layout got in the way of making the site usable and I got constant messages from people try to find courses. The lesson in this, is to always lean towards simple layouts and leave the high-end design to concept sites.
