How to Add a Webpage to Your iPad Home Screen (with video)

“It will cost you $0.00 to share this video on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, etc. It’s also free to give it a thumbs-up on YouTube. Thank you.” – Peggy Duncan

My how-to video shows you how easy it is to add a link to a Webpage to the Home Screen of your iPad (or iPhone). For example, I’ve added links to the following:

  • All of my Websites so I don’t have to go to Safari first to get to them. They’re together inside a group.
  • A YouTube playlist I’d created on hula hooping (I’m learning how and love it).
  • My local library Website.

NOTE: In the video instructions, if you don’t see “Add to Home Screen” right away, tap the and/or look for “Open in Browser” and continue with the instructions. I had to do this when adding the icon link to my Pulse page.

open-in-browser

This is an easy thing to do, and will save you time going forward.

10 Shortcuts to Selecting Text in Microsoft Word (with video)

Here are 10 shortcuts I use almost every day when I need to select text in Word. As far as I can remember, these tips work the same in all versions.

There are more shortcuts to selecting text, but I rarely use them. Just wanted to share the most common ones.

Please share with your network.

Combine PowerPoint Animations, Transitions, and Video to Create an Ad

After speaking engagements, I like to walk around with my iPhone and iRig microphone to capture testimonials. This video is from a recent conference, Society of Government Meeting Professionals, SGMP.org. I created portions of this video in PowerPoint with animations and slide transitions (in PowerPoint 2010, you can render directly to video).
I pulled the PowerPoint video into my editing software (Camtasia) and added music and the testimonial videos from my iPhone (I’d added all that to PowerPoint, but it kept crashing). I’ll send this to attendees and my conference host.
Check it out and let me know what you think.

How to Make Changes to Multiple YouTube Video Descriptions (and More) At Once

Have you wanted to add a URL or some additional contact information to your video descriptions on YouTube? Perhaps you’ve wanted to change monetization or some other setting to multiple videos. You’ll be delighted to discover that you don’t have to change each video individually!

This video shows you  how to make multiple changes at once.

Now isn’t that just the best time saver?!

Note: You can also change your video defaults. For example, when I upload a new video to YouTube, I have some details on how to CONNECT WITH US in the video description. This information appears automatically.

How to LIKE, SHARE, and SUBSCRIBE TO Videos on YouTube (with video)

My goal is to record more how to videos and increase my subscriber base, Likes, and Shares and YouTube. When you watch my videos, LIKE it with a thumbs up, SHARE with your social network, and SUBSCRIBE to my channel so you’ll know first when I’ve added more. Here’s a how-to video I made to show you how. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CLICK.

IMPORTANT: Don’t click the Facebook SHARE icon to place on your wall because a Share option will not appear with the video, so your friends can’t share (unless they click the timestamp on the update…which most people don’t know to do this).

COPY and PASTE the video URL instead.

 

Thank you. PEACE.

Example of Using Video to Promote an Event (with video)

On October 26, 2012, I’m presenting my first workshop on video basics, advanced PowerPoint for video graphics, basic editing, and building and optimizing a YouTube channel. Here’s a video I produced to showcase what attendees will learn. For details and registration, visit http://VideosYouMake.eventbrite.com/

This video was created using PowerPoint 2010 for graphics. I used my Logitech C920 Webcam with Camtasia 8 to record the on-camera piece. I added the other videos inside and the music using Camtasia. Then I put the finishing touches using Sony Vegas 12.

How to Add Your YouTube Channel Videos to Your Facebook Business Page and Rearrange the Apps (with video)

You can add your YouTube videos to your Facebook business (also called fan, brand, timeline, like) page for more exposure. This online video shows you the app I’m using and how to install it. I also show you how to  rearrange the app order so your YouTube videos show on your main page.

Once the app is installed, every time you upload a new video on YouTube, it’ll appear on your Facebook business page.

If you know other ways to make this happen, please leave a comment below.
