Decommissioning Video Tutorials on the Documentation Site

By Jeff Wilson

As we continually seek to improve the quality of our learning resources, we wanted to let you know that we are in the process of decommissioning the Video Tutorials section of the documentation site. By Thursday, September 13, all links to the old video site will be set to redirect to the new Unreal Engine Online Learning site.

The Video Tutorials section has been the home of Unreal Engine video tutorials for several years, and while this system provided a streamlined way to find all of our Unreal Engine video tutorials, it didn’t fulfill our vision for what a learning platform should be. The videos there were aging and maintaining the system required a lot of resources.

To address these issues, we recently launched a new online learning site that better facilitates our vision and provides a learning resource worthy of Unreal Engine. Now that we have this new platform, it is time for the old system to fade away into the sunset. 

So, what does that mean for all of the videos in the old system? First, they will all continue to be available on our YouTube channel. As far as being available in the documentation, they generally will fall into one of three buckets:
  • Videos that remain relevant and up to date based on an internal technical evaluation will be embedded into associated documentation pages.
  • Videos that are relevant but need to be updated will be placed into consideration for being redone as courses on the new learning platform.
  • Videos that are out of date and no longer relevant will be removed.
This has been a long time coming and we hope everyone enjoys the new system. As always, we welcome your feedback - which we encourage you to share in this dedicated forum thread.
