This is how I imagine a video about Tor's concepts and what it does and does not provide:

What does Tor stand for?

What is Tor?

What can Tor do for you?

What Tor does not provide?

How can you support the Tor network?

Any comments/suggestions/thoughts are welcome.

Progress:

  • Working on the slides I am going to use in the video and a draft script for #6922

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by Sherief

Attached an incomplete draft of the slides I am going to use in the video, if you have any comments, suggestions or any thing to add please do.

Posted these in tor-dev@ as well:

A couple of things:

  1. Number the slides in the bottom, it's mildly useful :-)
  2. Mention the licenses of these slides for redistribution (Creative Commons, anyone?)
  3. The "Browsing through the Tor network..." bubble seems a bit small and thusly looks like an annotation that is lost in the diagram. Maybe make it bigger or have it encapsulate the 3 nodes with a mild grey background. This is on the slide 6 (titled "Browsing the internet through Tor")

(again) Same applies for Slide 5, "This is how you browse the internet..."

  1. Maybe a near-final slide jokingly stating that It's "Tor" not "TOR", but maybe that's a bit too tongue in cheek or off-topic.
  2. Provide a short link for the "running relay/bridge/node" that goes to a decent intro of what that means.
  3. The use of the word "documents" might make users think that means "all downloaded files", maybe update to mention "(doc, pdf)" in brackets in addition to you mentioning it in script (which I see you do).

Has to be there. we need to spread the fact that we need help (bandwidth, resources, etc..) and advertise that we have a support team.

  1. Mention the licenses of these slides for redistribution (Creative Commons, anyone?)

Basically, I don't care, but there is a Tor logo in the first slide, I will need to ask about choosing one correctly. What do you think?

Fixed the title bubbles. I removed the encryption part to reach out a wider group of audience (make things easier to understand).

Fixed that :D

  1. Provide a short link for the "running relay/bridge/node" that goes to a decent intro of what that means.

I sliced a lot of information since this video needs to be 3 minutes. I just mentioned them as "relay" and explained what is a relay in the video script.

  1. The use of the word "documents" might make users think that means "all downloaded files", maybe update to mention "(doc, pdf)" in brackets in addition to you mentioning it in script (which I see you do).

Noted.

Thanks a million for your pointers.

Today I received feedback from a user about this video:
"Your video is cleanly done and easy to understand. Note one typo on the Browsing the Internet with Tor slide: it says "example.coam" not "example.com" on the right side."[0]

Below is a v2 of video[1]. Change-log:

  • Fixed "example.coam" typo - slide 7.
  • Removed the "https://torproject.org/" image, I think it's not needed since https://example.com is already there - slide 7.
  • Centered the "This is how you browse the internet..." bubble - slide 6.
  • Compressed the size to 30MB.

phobos, please rename and mirror this as you see fit.

Thanks.

After watching Karen's video I saw that she doesn't mention anything about Tor history, metrics etc.. So I did the same and made a 3 minutes 45 seconds. If that is not sufficient tell me and I will try to make something else.

Please close the ticket if this works.

Thanks.

Hello,

I translated the short English version into Arabic. It's 4 minutes long because what I said in English in 3 miuntes translates to 4 minutes in Arabic, I hope that's not going to be an issue.

Is there a way to link to the actual file for download? I only have wget, and fighting through dropbox's hideous javascript and obfuscation of downloads is a huge time sink.

comment:21 Changed 4 years ago by phobos

we figured out a way to grab them easily, and did so.

comment:22 Changed 4 years ago by lunar

Should this be moved over to SponsorO or closed?

comment:23 Changed 4 years ago by Sherief

We don't need anymore TBB training videos (unless someone wants to remake them), IMO close.
