Basic videos to teach view manipulation, commenting, etc...

I have clients who do not have any modelling experience and I want to share my models with comment capabilities so they can give their input. I know how to do all this, but I would like to compile a few videos to teach someone with no experience how to be an effective communicator in Onshape

How to manipulate the view, use the view cube, switch to different view states, how to hide and show parts, add comments, basic difference between a part studio and assembly, how to measure, etc...

I want something quick and concise where they can learn how to use the program from a non-modeler perspective. I've had to explain how to turn the model and add a comment over the phone and it's preferable to just have some video links to send them instead.

Can you guys give me some suggestions? It would be optimal to have a single video or a few quick videos to send to them to get up to speed quickly

    Michael - not sure what you're asking.
    If you're asking whether such a video exists currently, it does not.

    I'm looking for videos, technical briefings, etc...

    My client is an older man with a rudimentary knowledge in computers in general and I would like to teach him how to rotate the model and hide something and add a comment correctly and simple things like that. I need his input and I would like to be able to send him a few videos to get him up to speed on how to get his ideas and input to me through Onshape commenting. I would also prepare this same list of videos for any new clients to get them up to speed quickly without having to explain everything to them over a call.
