Want to Learn Something New, in Just 60 Seconds?

Languages:

In most of our tutorials and courses at Envato Tuts+, we aim to cover a topic in depth, giving you a comprehensive understanding of the concept or skill we're teaching.

But we also know that people don't always have time to read a long tutorial or watch a 15-part video series. 

So we've been trying out something different: a series of quick video tutorials, in which we introduce you to a new subject in just 60 seconds. It's been quite a challenge for our instructors to tackle complex subjects like building a WordPress theme or filming a documentary video, and cram all that information into just a minute. But the results have been impressive.

So far we've created more than 35 video tutorials across a wide range of subjects. You can browse a selection of them below, and if you've got a minute, why not play one of the videos and see what you can learn?
