I can't comment on the videos themselves because I haven't watch any of them. If there is an article associated with them, I'll read that. I find it quicker to read an article than watch a video, and it is easier to reference if I want to look back at it in the future (I have quite a few bookedmarked). The whole reason I come to Tech Republic is that I can keep up with all aspects of IT in one place, saving me time. I just don't have a lot of time to devote to watching videos.

Almost every IT Dojo video has an associated online article or PDF download. During our switch to a widescreen player earlier this year, we also began offer full transcripts for all our new IT Dojo videos--with the exception of the blooper and top five episodes. We're all about choice--online HTML, PDF download, audio podcasts, and videos.
