There are a few screencasts starting to appear on the Microsoft Office 2007 Developer Center.
For those of you who don’t know what screencasts are, they are basically videos showing you exactly how to do something in an application.
This screencast details exactly how to extend the Office 2007 UI by building a custom ribbon! Great if you want to customise the ribbon in Word 2007, Excel 2007, PowerPoint 2007, or Outlook 2007 with some menu options specific to your business, or your business systems.

The first of hopefully many screencasts is now live on The New Paperclip. This Screencast is an introduction to the new menu system in Word 2007, called the Ribbon UI.
The Screencast, An Introduction to the New User Interface in Word 2007, covers the basics of what the Ribbon is, what the tabs are and why they are there, and how to find your favourite Word commands (for example, how to change the font, its size or colour, as well as where the File menu is)
This is a Word 2007 tutorial for beginners. Future screencasts will dive into deeper topics, but this is a nice starting point! Enjoy
