This Week In Ideas Shared With Panopto — November 21, 2014
If your first cup of coffee made you 75% more awake, by now we’d all have automatic brewers at the ready on our kitchen counters.
If the latest tablet made you 75% more efficient at work, by now we’d all have seen our last keyboard.
If some new social platform made meetings 75% more productive, by now we’d be repurposing our newly-empty conference rooms.
Right now, your employees are 75 percent more likely to watch a video than to read documents, emails or web articles.
Isn’t it time you took advantage?
Video makes it easy to share virtually any idea, information, or insight — in a visual format that’s way more engaging than text alone.
It’ doesn’t have to be perfect. Just a simple webcam video of you explaining a point, or a recording of your PC screen as you demonstrate an issue, or a quick clip of an on-location issue recorded on your smartphone — they all help you get your message across more clearly and more efficiently than is possible with text alone.
And more and more, your people are already taking notice. Already today 75% percent of executives report watching work-related videos at least once a week. And according to Gartner Research, by the end of 2018, fully 3 in 4 workers at large organizations will interact with various kinds of video more than three times daily.
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.
The Lancet Series on Violence Against Women and Girls
Every day, millions of women and girls worldwide experience violence. Join the Lancet, along with Professor Charlotte Watts and Dr Cathy Zimmerman of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Dr Claudia Garcia Moreno of the World Health Organization, for this recorded presentation sharing the details behind a new series of papers on violence against women and girls. The five papers in the series cover the evidence on prevention, the health sector response, the role of men and women in successful prevention efforts, practical lessons from those working on the ground, and call for specific actions to eliminate violence against women and girls.
Social Media, Activism, and Mascots
Following the US Patent Office’s landmark decision to cancel the trademark held by the Washington DC professional football team, the debate over the propriety of Native American names and mascots in sports has grown quite hot. Sit in with Duke University for this recorded conversation with Adrienne Keene about the role of social media in the movement to remove Native American names and mascots from sports teams across the United States.
Keystone XL Pipeline: The Need, The Delays, and The Lessons
As the US Federal Government continues to debate the production of the Keystone XL Pipeline, Corey Goulett, President of Keystone Projects, comes to the Texas Tech University School of Law for the latest in the university’s Energy Law series. Goulett’s keynote presentation looks into North America’s energy infrastructure requirements, the organization’s view of the challenges that legal rulings and protests against the pipeline have created, and makes the case for why the pipeline should be developed.
The Value of Labelling Autism
Don’t miss Stuart Neilson’s presentation at the 6th Annual Critical Perspectives Conference, held at University College Cork. The conference considers and explores the value and relevance of psychiatric diagnoses in understanding and responding to a wide range of human experiences of emotional distress. Neilson’s own section looks specifically into Autism, and discusses the virtue of labelling the disorder in individuals as a means for helping people on the autism spectrum more easily find acceptance and protect their rights.
The Climate Reality Project
The data on global climate change continues to accumulate, becoming more striking with each new study. The Climate Reality Project presentations educate people about climate change, and build local networks of climate activists who work in their own communities and countries demanding solutions. Join Julie Anne Genter as she shares her learnings with Waikato University in New Zealand about the global climate crisis and its solutions.
Thunder and Lightning: Testing a 17th Century Naval 24-Pounder Cannon
Sometimes the best way to connect to history is to use it to blow something up. Dr Fred Hocker, Director of Research at the Vasa Museum, shares the details of the history and construction of this 300+ year old naval cannon — and demonstrates its capabilities — in this thrilling recording.
