1/9/2012 - RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Air Force officials have created four video tutorials, or vodcasts, to educate people on some of the capabilities and features available on the Air Force Personnel Services, or AFPERS, website.
A team of Air Force personnelists and contractors collaborated on the vodcasts to teach Regular Air Force, Guard, Reserve and civilians Airmen about the basic functions of AFPERS, where to access it, how to create an account and what to do if a user ID or password is forgotten.
"We are using video tutorials as a way to provide awareness and information to our members on personnel services," said Mary McAfee, Air National Guard's personnel services delivery strategy chief. "These products will help ensure our Airmen are aware of the AFPERS website because it is our total force source for personnel information and services."
Future video tutorials being proposed include educating Airmen about the AFPERS civilian homepage, addressing the top five issues received by the Total Force Service Center and how the website can help answer other frequently asked questions or inquiries about personnel processes.
The video tutorials are available on the Air Force Portal at https://my.af.mil under the Life and Career tab, then Career and on the AFPC public website at http://www.afpc.af.mil/afpers_vodcasts/index.asp. These products can also be redistributed on other Air Force websites to further help raise awareness and educate Airmen about online personnel services.
