I had to rep you for putting this together. What a wonderful resource! :clap:
Thank you!
I had to split the first posts to be able to update it with more threads (it seems like people have asked for dvds in a lot of subforums ;) ). Hopefully it is even better now.

Hi! I'm new to this forum so I'm still learning where to find info. I know this post is old, but it's not workin for me.. I'm trying to find more info/advice on instructional dvds as I want to teach myself from home since I'm in an area where classes aren't offered. Can someone point me in the right direction on all the info above, or is the system update to blame? Thanks!

Hi, there, and welcome to OD! No idea why the links aren't working- could be they are outdated (thread is eight years old) or have something to do with our newer program. How about you start a new instructional thread and ask folks about up-to-date instructional dvds?

Welcome! I suspect the system update is to blame. However, the old threads and posts should be here and thereby be available through the search function or if you search through the various subforums.
