TYPO3 Video Tutorials for Editors
The collection of TYPO3 video tutorials for editors - consisting of videos in the last long term support version 4.5 and the complete series which consists of 21 consecutive videos, plus an introduction, in TYPO3 version 4.2 - has been extended by new videos about the recent long term support version 6.2. For the new version TYPO3 7 LTS we plan to produce one compact video.
The tutorial videos are supplemented by TYPO3 test web sites in different versions, where you can easily put into practice what you see in the videos or simply test TYPO3 and try other functions you would not want to test on your own web site. For easy orientation, the pages and content of the test web sites are setup as similar as possible to that of the videos.
The current TYPO3 7 LTS can be tested on TYPO3 demo version, long term support version 6.2 on TYPO3 test. An updated overview of other TYPO3 versions available as test web sites is given on TYPO3 websites.
Where TYPO3 offers different ways to do things, in most cases the videos will show only one of these - the one we consider the most efficient or easiest to learn.
Videos in TYPO3 6.2 LTS
Videos for the current TYPO3 version 6.2 LTS can be watched on our 6.2 playlist on YouTube or here in this embedded player:

TYPO3 4.5 LTS - Comparison to Version 4.2
Complete Video Series (Version 4.2)
Though in an older version - TYPO3 4.2 - this series still can be a help for editors working with one of the newer TYPO3 versions 4.x as most of the features and arrangements have not changed significantly. The differences towards 6.x are more crucial.
The video series shows slowly and step by step the knowledge a TYPO3 editor needs for daily work.
Instead of watching the videos online, you can download the whole series as a zip file: TYPO3 videos (download is being provided by an external web site).
It is planned to keep this series until the end of the lifetime of the old stable long term support version 4.5.
