This audio/visual presentation teaches the basics of logging in and adding content to a Plone web site. It's intended to be one of a series of videos assisting first-time users and those considering Plone as a content management solution. The QuickTime version uses the H.264 codec and plays back with either Apple QuickTime (Mac OS X and Windows) or VLC (many platforms). The DivX version plays back with VLC (many platforms). Other players may work as well.
