In the Featured Lessons section there is a bunch of good stuff on recording good audio, glossary of common terms, how to do slow motion and how to compose a shot.

It is a good resource that needs to be promoted and shared. Tell a friend or the designated family member with a camcorder. This would be the person that you have to watch their hand held, shaky and hard to hear videos.
