Here's another example of short videos being used to share content.
It's called 10-minute insights, and it was created by Edcast, a platform that enables folks to create micro-learning platforms.
Here are some examples:
- Mitch Kapoor talking about his STEM program (called SMASH). Filmed with a cell phone. More than 20 minutes long.
- Bill Gates giving a talk about new technology for education. Filmed by an amateur. More than 25 minutes long.
- Astronaut Scott Parazynski. Filmed poorly. About 11 minutes long.
- Failed interview with Jose Vietez. How did this get posted? Shows technology is not quite working yet.
- Celebrity Designer Marissa Kenson talking about new way to sell clothing. About 13 minutes.
These are bare-boned videos, some more successful than others, some with reasonable production values, some with some serious degradations in lighting, etc.
Interestingly, Educast says they use "bite-sized content curated from thousands of high-quality sources using AI-based algorithms."
The 10-Minute Insights website is about content and seemingly about celebrity. There are no supports for learning — no practice, no feedback, no support for remembering or application, no metrics for evaluating learning results. It's just content. That can be okay…but it's usually not sufficient…
