1Password How-To: Install the browser extension—what do you think?

Now that some other Agile duties have simmered down, I’m getting back to one of my passions: tutorial videos. I love working on our documentation and creating helpful videos, so here’s one of my first quick shots after dusting off my ScreenFlow license.

This is a how-to on installing the 1Password browser extension for Mac App Store customers (our website version has a slightly different process) and clocks in at just over two minutes. If you get a minute, give it a look and let me know what you think in the comments:

Some things to think about:

  • Is it more helpful than a hindrance?
  • Does it move too quickly or did you fall asleep?
  • Is this audio and video enough, or should I add visual descriptions of steps as I explain them? (think: some kind of an overlay with brief instructions like “Step 2: Click the whichamadinger below the thingie”)

I’d love to hear what you think of this initial attempt after being gone for a while. It’ll help me make more and more helpful videos like these.

    The clip between ~10 and 20 seconds, is a little fast-paced, especially when you are also narrating. It would make more sense to me to only show the extension in use, once you have first shown how to install it.

    Also, you never seemed to explicitly state that ‘installing the password extension will add an icon to your browser toolbar’.

    Other than that, I think it pretty clear and imagine that it will be very useful to people.
