The beginning. Whether it’s a new year, a new project, a new course, or a whole new program, the first days set the tone for all those hours to follow.
That’s why projects open with kickoff meetings. Classes open with a review of the syllabus. And whole programs tape their mission statements to the most prominent wall.
The importance of those first moments is also why it’s such a shame they are so fleeting. A new team member can never attend a kickoff held three months ago. A late-enrolling student will never hear the syllabus discussed. Those who join programs, movements, and organizations will never witness the spark that brought them into being.
Unless, of course, you record it.
With nothing more than the webcam built into your laptop, or the video camera included in your smartphone, you can quickly capture any and every of the formative moments of your newest project, newest session, and newest idea. Video brings text and bullet points to life, and engages any audience more deeply in your message through spoken and unspoken communication cues.
For you, a recording of those first meetings and moments may be a valuable record of the start of something new.
For your audience — and especially those who join you after activities have already begun — those recordings will be an invaluable connection to the mission, the culture, and the excitement that brought everything together to begin with.
This week we saw more and more people taking advantage of video to share ideas, send messages, and make a statement. 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.
Construction Risk Management — Basic Risk Concepts
Join the construction engineering management students at the University of Alabama Birmingham for this flipped class recorded lecture introduction to the basic risk concepts relevant to construction management. Get to know the basic classifications of property and liability risk, and get grounded in the essential details that must be considered as part of every building project.
Motions for Revision and Reconsideration & Best Practices for Writing an Effective Domestic Violence Petition
Cases of domestic violence are serious issues, and instances in which legal counselors must act quickly and effectively in order to protect their clients. For a pragmatic look into what makes an effective domestic violence legal petition, join Bill Braun, Mentor of the Domestic Violence Advocacy Project and Leah Medway, Pro Bono Counsel at Perkins Coie Law, for this recorded training session.
The Impact of Dollarization and Currency Boards on Income and Inflation
Join Ross Hallren for a discussion of his research using the synthetic control method to estimate the effect of official dollarization in Ecuador and quasi-dollarization, in the form of a currency board, in Argentina. Hallren’s work indicates that these monetary arrangements were effective at controlling inflation in these two countries and in contrast with previous research, that these policies had no impact on real income. An interesting lecture for anyone with an eye on the policies at play in the world’s financial markets.
Battery Inverter Basics
The team at Solar Energy International shares this sharp introduction into Battery-Based Inverters. Get to know what’s available and how each category of options can be configured in this detailed technical training video.
An Introduction to History Painting
For hundreds of years, paint on the canvas has been as much a teacher of history as text on the page. Sit in on this recorded lecture for a detailed look at history in art, starting at the classic style of West’s Death of General Wolfe, and leading up to the contrasting Guernica by Picasso. Before the age of 24 hour cable news (or even photojournalism), these were the images that brought history to life.
Administration of Nonprofit Organizations
Southern Illinois University’s Dr. James Grant introduces the big-picture issues that influence the development and leadership of nonprofit organizations in this flipped classroom lecture. Grant’s lesson looks back in time to discuss the historical and cultural events and changes that set the foundation for modern nonprofits, and is a must-see for anyone interested in the management and development of today’s charitable enterprises.
