David Ellams created some videos in June 2011 covering the basics of openstreetmap editing with Potlatch2 (default editor on the osm.org website). They have been subtitled in may languages and can be found at:

OpenStreetMap contributor, emacsen, just announced a new series of OSM videos.

In honor of OSM's birthday, I present to the OSM community a new series of videos on OpenStreetMap.


They're a set of Khan Academy style videos. That is they're each short 5-15 minute videos on a particular topic of OpenStreetMap. Right now there's about two hours of video, covering the basic concepts: all the way from nodes and tags, to routing, changesets and rendering.
