As mentioned we think the best teaching method online is still to write in English and to  collect images, videos, and animations to insert were needed. Two thing we have going for us today Google to search for images and Youtube to search for videos and animations.

The VMS is constructed to keep topic lessons to less than 14 pages. If it runs longer consider making two topics out of what you have. If you find a long but tedious video on youtube that explains say knurling on a lathe then write in your own words what the home shop teacher is trying to say in the video and remember that the average person can read twice as fast as the average story teller can tell. So use small clips of the video, write some explanation, and then we will put right below the video, "see the complete video here" and  we will give the author of the video credit in print too. So this is how we take the available assets on the web and put them in our topics with some text to explain. I often mute the videos and as I said send the reader to the youtube site.

Write side bars or footers to expand on others work.

More later
