Is there any better way to show people how to do this?

The following 13 stats point to the power of video content: – https://boast.io/13-stats-that-prove-the-power-of-video-marketing/

Before you follow my links to my favorite video creation tools (near the bottom of the post) I suggest that you spend a bit of time to make sure that are you using the power of images, video, and words to influence and motivate people rather use the video to just dump more information?

If you are wondering if your video is going to be effective in motivating people to action I suggest that you consider the list of questions that I pose on my post When people need motivation, not information http://www.harapnuik.org/?p=6705

Enough words – check out the following two videos to make sure that you are targeting the hearts before you target the minds of your audience.

In the post, The Head Won’t Go Where the Heart Hasn’t Been http://www.harapnuik.org/?p=5461 I provide some of the research behind why it is so important to target the heart before you target the mind.

It doesn’t take much encouragement for me to share my passion for using YouTube to enhance the learning environment. In the YouTube in the Classroom workshop at the Learning and Teaching Centre at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) on November 5, 2014 we explored using YouTube and other media to enhance the face2face, flipped, hybrid or blended and fully online settings.

The following are all the Youtube clips and related links used in the workshop:

This just one of many TED talks that I recommend. If you go to TED.com and filter by “Most viewed” you will see Ken Robinson’s talks as well as Simon Sinek’s talk about Why and many more amazing talks.

My blog post The Power of Media in informal learning offers the insights that I have found in using media to help my two sons in their pursuit of becoming professional downhill racers.

For a learning theorist and instructor there are few things more invigorating than working with a group of highly motivated faculty. I had one of those invigorating sessions today at BCIT when I had the privilege of conducting a Part Time Studies Instructor Professional Development Day workshop on the Power of Video. While we focused much of our time on using Youtube to create a context, introduce a concept, provide a bridge, introduce humour, create engagement, offer complex instruction and much much more, we also explored using other forms of media in combination with video to enhance the face2face, blended or online learning environment.

The following are all the Youtube clips used in the workshop as well as several of my favourites that we unable to view due to the lack of time. Note for next year—need to allocate at least 90 minutes or more for the session.
