Re: Google Docs Tutorials?

Nimer Jaber

Hello Brian,

Help tutorials are often written for the average individual who already has some basic computing concepts under their belt, and is looking to do common tasks or accomplish some common user journeys. Most tutorials I see from companies do just that. They don't go too in depth, but they don't assume that you have a high degree of knowledge, either. This is why anyone in the community, including you, can create tutorials. If you feel that something is missing from tutorials you read or watch, once you learn how to accomplish something, why not put it out there for others who come along and have the same inquiry.

Is it me though? I read these sort of tutorials and help files and find
quite often the help almost, but not quite describes what I'm trying to
actually do. I've always noticed this sort of thing. I think a lot of it
stems from the over familiarity of the person writing it, assuming things
about the readers conceptual view of the software which is not universal.
