Video Tutorials for SketchUp to Google Earth

Video Tutorials (podcasts) on SketchUp and Google EarthTwo certified SketchUp instructors called Mike Tadros and Alex Oliver have created a number of excellent video tutorials (podcasts) at a web site called go-2-school.com. These videos (Quicktime required) are professional-grade with nice transitions, music, and excellent zooms to show details on user interface sequences. They have chosen broadcast quality resolution (so you can see all the details), which does mean you either need very good broadband or need to be patient during download. Here are some Google Earth relevant tutorials: Google Earth to SketchUp – Part 1, and SketchUp to Google Earth – Part 2. If you are looking to learn more about using SketchUp, these video tutorials are worth watching.
Also available from the “School” guys is a video interview with Google’s John Bacus at MacWorld earlier this month where he shows the new 3D buildings in Google Earth 4.

  1. I didn’t think the videos would play at first but gave them time to download and sure am glad I did. Very informative tutorials with many tips and techniques I didn’t know existed and the video quality was phenominal. I’ll be sure to bookmark these.

  3. Interesting tutorials – putting google earth into schools I think is a step in the right direction. I know that if we had these kind of resources when I was in school, I probably would have actually enjoyed school a lot better! Google Earth would be used especially well when looking at geography.

  4. The tutorials were interesting and I was enticed to try it out myself. But I didn’t have much beginner’s luck. What can you suggest when one encounters that so called Bug Splat?

  5. it works very slow.

  6. I’m presently working on some mapping projects. The maps that I present to clients are limited to Google Maps and those I made from GPS Visualizer. Can I make use of Google Earth for this purpose?

  7. There are some parts of the video freeze why?

  8. It works really slow but it is not a harmful bug.

  9. These tutorial is still valid! Even written back in 2007, it has value in 2011! Google Earth still rocks! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I would like to thank to Mike Tadros and Alex Oliver for the amazing video tutorials, which they have created. They were very helpful to me.
