Lessons from YouTube videos

Posted on: February 22, 2016

This week I thought I should catch up on some notes that we scrolling further and further down my list. The first five are peripheral lessons or reminders from YouTube videos.

Video source
OK Go is one of my favourite bands because they embody innovation. Their latest effort involved being weightless. This is what it looks like.

Video source
Like most online productions, OK Go has a brief behind-the-scenes video to provide some insight into the inspiration and perspiration of their work.

I normally highlight how this is a perfect example of product and process. I also harp on how this should be the thinking and method of maintaining an e-portfolio.

Instead of giving people rules to follow, I would show them these two videos and ask them what e-portfolio values and mindsets might be. Some patterns would emerge, as would some unexpected answers. Most are likely to be valid and there would be more crowdsourced principles than one person could come up with.
