Should Narrators of Tutorial Videos Announce Tool Changes ?
The teacher in the following video is changing tools, and newbs don’t notice. (Even though the mouse can be seen changing the tool.)
Reference this discussion …
Measurement label stuck on 'Sides' not 'Distance'. How do I change it back and set height distance please
… where the OP doesn’t realize that the Circle Tool was changed to the PushPull tool.
The narrator of the lesson has just changed to the PushPull tool without announcing the tool change, … and just goes on to state the action that needs to be performed with the new tool.
Teachers (in software instructional videos) need to understand that everything is new to newbs, and they do not notice everything that is happening. They are watching the model space closely, so they miss other things that happen. They also often lose track of the cursor movements.
Anyway, in videos, teachers need to always announce anytime any button or control is clicked, or a tool is changed.
