I have a favor to ask. In anticipation of my eProductivity.NET site launch, I have been experimenting with adding video blog segments as a regular section on the site. Some of these might be "talking head" segments, but most will be "hands-on" or screen cam movies - essentially "how-to" segments about how I use technology.
I recently posted a sample video blog segment on my personal site in order to test the viability of a video blog and to solicit feedback. David was even kind enough to mention this on his blog. Record numbers of people watched the video, however, few provided me with feedback on likes/dislikes/Interests.
Would you take a look and let me know what you think of the concept of video blogs as a teaching tool? (The topic is RSS, which I know is on at least a few of your radars. If not, it should be.)
While I will certainly welcome your feedback on the content itself, I'm much more interested to know what people think of the concept of a video blog in general.
Do you think that you would regularly watch 3-5 minute videos on the productive use of technology, and if so, what kinds of topics related to "putting technology to work for you" would be of interest to you?
If any of you are so inclined, I would really appreciate it if you would blog something about it or otherwise put the word out; I'd like to get feedback from as broad an audience as possible. Feel free to post here or to contact me off-list. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Thanks in advance
