Product Tours For Divi – the smart new way to learn Divi

Product Tours For Divi – the smart new way to learn Divi

Elegant Themes have just introduced “Product Tours For Divi” which will make learning Divi faster, easier and a lot more fun.

Divi product tours are dynamic, interactive tutorials that prompt users to perform real actions inside the builder and create their own layouts.

Divi already has fabulous Video and text documentation, but if you’re the sort of person who learns by doing, rather than watching and reading, then Product tours are for you.

The first Product Tour to be released is the “Introduction To The Divi Builder” with others scheduled to be released in the near future.

Product Tours are primarily aimed at getting new users up and running with Divi as quickly as possible, but existing users will find them just as useful.

And if you’re a website designer, Product Tours are a great learning aid to use with your clients.
