Making Videos More Useful

November 13, 2007 - 0 Comments

One of my pet peeves on product areas of web sites is how the videos leave you hanging. That is, you’ve watched an interesting video about a subject (and some of them are actually pretty interesting)… but then, what next?The person in the video may recite a URL, and a URL may even appear on the screen… but how do you get there quickly for more information?On, we recently introduced a way to follow on to the next step on videos.Here’s how it works: When you’re watching a video, such as the one on the Catalyst 4500 Series page, you’ll see a “learn more” bar starting about 30 seconds into the talk. Click on it, and you’ll get a link directly to the information being discussed. videooverlaycta.jpgThanks to our video team and site producers for making this a reality!
