Summary

Your electronic work instructions are good. Let's make them great. Join iFixit's Lead Technical Writer Andrew Goldberg and Video Hostess Gwendolyn Gay for "Videography Tips and Tricks: A Technical Writer's Crash Course." In this brand new episode of the Dozuki Workshop Series, Andrew and Gwendolyn will show you how to effectively incorporate videos into electronic work instructions.
