Picture this: You’re knee-deep in an elearning project with a crazy deadline and you need to quickly figure out how to customize a certain part of your course. Instead of spinning your wheels, you teleport yourself to the office of a fellow Articulate user, who walks you through the solution in less than five minutes.
Sound impossible? It’s not.
With Screenr, we see it happening all the time! Well, except for the teleporting part.
Fortunately, you don’t need a teleporter, because help is as close as your web browser. Quick, informal screencasts are popping up nearly every day in the Community Forums as folks use Screenr to share tips and tricks with each other. And the best part? These tutorials benefit the whole community.
Now it’s easier than ever to find and track these resources.
As the number of community-made screencasts grows, we want to make it easy for you to stay on top of all the great stuff being shared. So we added a Community Tutorials page where you can find screencasts on the topics that matter to you. It’s like pulling up a chair next to your Articulate peers and sharing best practices.
The lists come from a collection of Diigo bookmark feeds, which we’ve organized by product. As new screencasts emerge, we bookmark them and include them in the feeds. The lists get updated in real-time, with the newest screencasts appearing at the top. When you find great ones you want to keep, you can save them with whatever bookmarking tool you choose.
Each list has an RSS feed so you’re always in-the-know about new tutorials as they’re created. You can subscribe to individual lists (see the screencast below) or subscribe to all the lists at once by using the RSS feed on this page.

Got an Articulate question that you don’t see covered in the Community Tutorials page? The Community wants to know! Post your question in the forums or add a suggestion here. And if you haven’t given Screenr a try yet, now’s a great time to do it! In less than five minutes you can screencast your favorite Articulate tip or best practice, and you’ll be adding to the value of the community, too.
