Movies on the Go

We're excited about the video-capable iPods. As a training company we're always looking for unique ways to engage our audience. To that end, the iPod is a dream come true. Quicktime content can now be emancipated from the computer and placed in the palm of your hands - literally.

If you're part of the ear-budded masses that prefer your content "on-the-go", we now offer you iPod-friendly podcasts we've dubbed "Ripplecasts".   Ripplecasts are free Quicktime movies and tutorials created by our Apple-certified trainers that cover a range of software and hardware-related subjects.
