For those looking to improve the quality of their online videos, video sharing site Vimeo has launched a useful resource, Vimeo Video School. The lessons are free and are useful for video creators of all skill levels, but especially so for those just starting out.

Vimeo Video School includes a series called "Video 101," a series of clever and humorous original videos just for beginners. Those who have felt stumped looking for simple answers will appreciate the approach. Other featured lessons cover basics such as capturing sound, framing a shot, and storyboarding.

Since DSLR shooting is a hot area, Vimeo Video School covers it thoroughly in a an eight-part series hosted by videographer Philip Bloom. Viewers learn how to shoot video with a DSLR, create time-lapse video, and record sound.

Besides highlighting original lessons, the Video School also links to hundreds of user-generated video tutorials created by Vimeo members.

"Vimeo Video School is the next step in our continued commitment to provide a platform for people to learn from and inspire each other," says Blake Whitman, director of community and product for Vimeo "By aggregating well-produced tutorials made by our members as well as creating light-hearted and informative lessons ourselves, we are making the process of creating videos easy and fun."
