ClipTraining, an innovator in computer-based training, today announced the release of its Windows 7 video-on-tap training services for anyone from the individual to corporate employees. ClipTraining has adapted education to the way today’s generation receives knowledge by developing a Web-based on-demand Learning Management System (LMS) that is intuitive and affordable.
The Windows 7 training series brings a portfolio of application training videos edited into ‘Training Clips’ that serve as on-call support for software issues. ClipTraining’s online training and testing interface reduces manual staff training and improves employee productivity by providing issue-based training. ClipTraining’s Windows 7 training series promises to significantly reduce training time requirements for the newest Windows operating system with concise 3-5 minute on-demand training overviews based on the features and functionality software users are having challenges with. This approach mitigates redundant training on topics the user has already been educated on and provides an on-demand resource that extends beyond classroom training.
Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows, developed by Microsoft for use on PCs. The new Microsoft Windows operating system became generally available on October 22, 2009 and will become widely deployed as computer users and organizations upgrade and purchase new computer systems. As such, the following are highlights of the new operating system that ClipTraining thinks every user should be aware of.
• Jump Lists (ClipTraining Lesson 10) Windows 7 sports a streamlined approach to accessing apps and data through jump lists that allow you to ‘jump’ right to the document, song, video, website, etc… that you want to access. Located off the Taskbar and Start Menu, these jump lists will take some getting used to but will make your desktop navigation much more refined.
• Working with Libraries (ClipTraining Lesson 12) Libraries take the content on our systems that is often scattered amongst multiple folders and aggregates that content into a single view. Windows 7 automatically configures libraries for Documents, Music, Videos and Pictures. You can create new libraries or simply tweak the ones you’ve been given. In either case you’ll find this to be one of the coolest new features in Windows 7.
• Search (ClipTraining Lesson 13) The easier it is for users to search and navigate through data, the more productive they will be. Windows 7 follows up on the heels of Explorer and Search changes made by Windows Vista to enhance the experience even more so. Users need to know how to perform Instant Searches off the Start Menu, use Explorer dialogs to locate items through the ‘breadcrumb bar’ or integrated search features in every window. The more they know how to weave with ease through the plethora of data, the better their using and work experience.

Company’s today face a multitude of instructional challenges, such as keeping employees current with both critical and new applications, providing their organization with affordable and cost-effective employee training, and freeing administrators from support and help desk resource drain.

The ClipTraining library hosts some of the most commonly used business applications and proprietary software to answer these challenges through its automated learning systems.
“The new features in Windows 7 have the potential to improve productivity for all employees using the new operating system, and as with all our software training videos, this series is expected to get employees up to speed much faster than traditional training models,” said Timothy Duggan, co-founder and CEO of ClipTraining. “For individuals and company’s of any size, the ClipTraining approach removes the long hours, management headache and expense associated with other forms of training and is issue-based to give users the information they need - fast.”
