Google is launching a series of websites called 'Teach Parents Tech' to offer straightforward and helpful basic technology advice. The sites will allow the younger masters of all things digital to get on with consuming mince pies and playing videogames this christmas.
Google is set to launch its Teach Parents Tech series of public service videos shortly. However, it doesn't let anyone off scott free. Parents wishing to be taught by Google will still have to be navigated online and pointed in many of the right directions.
The site has set up and produced 54 how-to videos hosted by Google employees, each of which runs for just under a minute. The topics range from basics such as "how to attach a file to an email" or "how to copy and paste" through to "how to find cheap flights and " how to cal relatives far away."
The company also offered a physical package of tips on Monday morning but it sold out by the end of the day.
In a blog post Google said, "TeachParentsTech.org lets you select from more than 50 basic how-to videos to send to mom, dad, your old college roommate, your neighbour or anyone else who could use a little help with tech tasks - whether it's how to copy & paste to how to share a big file."
"Wrap up your video with a custom email and off it goes! The recipient will receive your message and a link to the video(s) you selected."
