Everything you need to know in just 3mins
Digital natives (see the work of Marc Prensky) expect information in short, sharp bursts. Even the digital immigrants amongst us appreciate brief, to the point briefings. I came across this site, and thought I would incorporate some of its presentations in my learning materials. It consists of a number of three minute videos, which introduce the basics of a topic.
The videos are produced by a company called ‘Custom Craft’, and their strength is that they come in “plain English”, using very simple animation techniques. This is a young company, with just 30 videos at present – although they have had in excess of 10million hits. Subjects include, Cloud Computing, Phishing Scams, Social Networking, Electing a US President, Investing Money and CFL Light Bulbs. They also produce custom videos. The videos may be purchased, or you can view them for free from their web site.
I have embedded their video on Blogs below.
