This Week In Ideas Shared With a Panopto Video — November 7, 2014
Now is the time.
For the past few weeks and months, nearly everyone working in organizations large and small has been preparing recommendations for 2015 budgets. Running numbers. Tuning estimates. Filling in details.
Now is the time when all that preparation pays off in creating sharper projections, more convincing points, and stronger arguments.
Now is the time when you can make your case.
For most organizations, that will mean following the time-honored tradition of presenting your pitch to your executive team. Convince them, and you’re path for next year gets a whole lot clearer.
So why leave that important presentation to chance?
More and more, professionals are turning to video presentation software like Panopto to practice their pitch — and in the event a key member of the leadership team can’t attend the proposal, to make their case shareable on-demand in a visual format that’s way more engaging than text or slides alone.
Whether it’s next year’s budget, a new passion project, or any other worthy cause, video can help you make sure your ideas stand out and get heard.
This week we saw more and more individuals taking up their cases, and offering important, useful, and helpful ideas among the latest presentations shared online with Panopto. And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto’s video presentation software.
How Does the Media Influence the Response to Epidemics?
As the Ebola virus rages on in West Africa, the world is assessing the best way to address this epidemic. The discussion in the US has revolved around many issues – including an air travel ban – which have caused an uproar in the public health sector. But what is really shaping the responses made towards the Ebola epidemic? By looking at Ebola in comparison with previous epidemics, such as the cholera epidemic in Haiti, this recorded panel discussion explores how the media can influence the population’s reaction and response to epidemics around the world.
DigIT Innovation Talks
Modeled after the popular TED Talks, this conference series features informative and inspirational presentations by Johns Hopkins faculty innovators about new and exciting uses of digital technology in education. This first recorded event kicks off with Professor Michael Falk on “Purposeful Teaching: Computing Nanotubes and HIV,” Associate Professor Charles Limb on “Peering into the Brain of a Musical Genius,” and Professor Thomas Dolby on “The Road to MIDI Hell is Paved with Good Intentions.”
Reversing the Irreversible: Type 2 Diabetes and You
Join us for this recorded lecture from Roy Taylor, Professor of Medicine and Metabolism at Newcastle University, that seeks to describe the research study which showed that Type 2 diabetes could be reversed to normal. Taken in full, Dr Taylor’s research asserts that type 2 diabetes is not caused by any particular body mass index. Rather it is determined by personal response to fat, and this allows understanding of type 2 diabetes occurring in people who are not overweight or obese.
WW1 Goes Twitter
Making First World War history accessible 100 years on can be challenging — but social media has the potential to shed new light on what it means to remember. As part of the Engage: Social Media Michaelmas series, join us for this recorded keynote featuring Mechthild Herzog from the University of Luxembourg discussing her experiences of working in the team coordinating the Twitter project @RealTimeWW1: Tweets from 1914-18, which has aimed to make these connections possible. The recording offers insights into the ideas behind the project, how it developed, the challenges and subsequent lessons learned when using Twitter in this creative way.
