command line tutorial

Dear community,

I would like to ask your opinion; if there was a tutorial

Its just that ive read several manuals on the subject, and theyre so
technical, and cryptic, its easy to struggle. Lucky for me, ive become good at understanding
this subject.
I simply believe that I can do a better job of explaining command line concepts, and batch
scripting so that the average person can really understand. For example, are you familiar
with the "video professor" series that uses a very user friendly approach to teaching?
The illustrations are presented with pre selected mouse movements on the screen that show
you exactly where to move your mouse, and click, step by step. Though command line is mouse,
and GUI free, I think something similar to showing each command typed, and entered with
results presented, and explained (before the student types in anything, just like the
"video professor" series) would go a long way to helping the student understand. I would
present this on DVD as a classroom style teaching tool. Explaining each command switch,
option, etc, with a large video screen tool that I would use as a virtual blackboard.
Just as the "video professor" would lead you with a cursor step, by step, my series would
similarly do the same.

Holla if you feel me.
Thanks, Solutions

depends on why you aske the question?

If you are looking at publishing it on the net for free or for a small fee to help others out, there will be heaps of people that will appreciate it or at least take a look at it and try and understand it.

your avarage computer user has problems locating the start button on there desktop let alone scripting.

If you are looking at it from a marketing point of view, your main market will be other IT related people, and they will nut it out or google it in most cases, and to pay for somthing lol will only happen after they open and read the users guide!
