My Oracle Support: Featuring user-driven innovations - New Videos Posted Aug 2014!
Updated Aug 1,2014. The HTML Transition is now complete... So all of the old videos (that apply to the Flash UI) are now moot, although the concepts are still valid, if you want some background, the UI will be slightly different. Here are new videos for the HTML and Mobile user experiences. Learn what's new and start saving time today. This page is effectively "dead", a few videos are still valid, as shown below. I have added the new (Aug 2014) overview demo.
You can also use the Feedback link inside of My Oracle Support. There are also leader lead classes, and even sessions in other languages. Those posted here are only in English right now. Most are closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
