What do WordPress beginners need to know?

Hey Guys, I am trying to come up with the "ultimate" WordPress video tutorial course (free).

I have come up with over 40 videos to create, but just so I can have a bit more input than just myself, what do you think should be included?

So, if you have been using WordPress for a while, what do you think people would want to know when just getting started?

and if you have just started using WordPress, what would you like to know how to do?

I really appreciate ANY input here guys! (I am aiming for around 50 videos, I have around 40)

    For me, it would be plugins. The main one's for security and the importance of backup. Just today I needed to restore a site. It was so quick compared to rebuilding from it. Also the importance of EU Cookie Law, Terms of Service and Affiliate notification. All which seems to be left out or just one mentioned.

    Iv found that when i try to show absolute beginners how to use wordpress, it isnt as easy to use as I thought!

    You need to show them how to install it, how to configure it and then how to post content and set up categories. Iv found that people really struggle to grasp the concept of it all when they first see it.

    Obviously the use of proper plug ins is vital. Obtaining and using images would be a useful topic. People will want to have interesting pictures to dress up their blog.

    Just my opinion - 40 to 50 videos seems like too many, somewhat intimidating. Consider condensing them to small number of videos with the same amount of content.

    Perhaps not a beginner-friendly topic, but even a little understanding of the backend template structure ("the loop" etc.) goes a long way when modifying themes.

    There's an interview on mixergy.com from a guy that owns one of the largest traffic Wordpress niche sites.

    He started out by basically stalking Twitter looking for anything related to Wordpress questions.
