Hi,about ten years ago we started to develop online-videos for interactive learning. We stopped this.If the videos are too simple nobody needs them, it is easier to have a text.If it is too complicate, it is too difficult to understand and remember a problem using a video.In between there are possibilities. But if you compare benefit vs. effort, it is no option. This was for software product training.In other areas it may be useful.
I tried to find soulutions for software problems and found some videos. They showed exactly what to do. But it was too much information at a time. I searched until I found written text.
However: I searched for modding of objectives for . Here I found interesting videos.
So I can say: it depends on the problem.
And maybe on audience.
Best regardsBernd

Adobe's one of the worst offenders I've encountered as far as
providing inadequate written documentation and covering things only in
video.

I've lost count of how many Adobe videos I've looked at because
someone told me the information I wanted was there, and it turned out
not to be.
