Re: Productive Video
Exactly, very well put. Because of all these different styles of learning it's crucial to be able to have these different way of communicating to a person.

Re: Productive Video
@vnewman - an important point I think. For me personally, video has pretty much been my professional focus for more than 20 years, including production, post-production, integration with other web media and then research, analysis, measurement etc. And yet, I would rather process information in text, because I can do so much faster.

Re: Productive Video
very true, with any content, regardless of medium, the notion of end user preference for "how they want to consume" needs to guide the decsion.

Re: Productive Video
I think the critical word here is "supplement."  It is important to remember that people typically have varied learning styles - some learn best by watching, others by doing, others by listening, others by reading, and others with a combination of all or some of the above.

Re: Productive Video
I don't think videos will replace text.. because reading text can be much faster. Even if there's a 2x or 8x or 64x speed up of the video, it's hard to "skim" a long video to get to an important or key part. Maybe that will change with better "video search" tech, but so far the good video search tech relies on transcribing the audio into text....

Re: Productive Video
dcawrey,

For the foreseeable future I think text has a major advantage in being a narrow channel with fairly high precision. For many situations, what you want to do is build a procedure, rule, or interpretation in the receiver/student's head, and giving them one block at a time and telling them how to hook it to the next block and the previous block is a more reliable way to get them to build the same process into their own heads. Even there, though, the ability of video to not only go step by step, but to show each step in an easily reviewed format, is likely to be an increasing advantage in the future. Right now people are learning to cook and do arithmetic from videos; it doesn't seem unthinkable to me that they'll eventually pick up critical thinking skills the same way (provided there are good enough videos made by people who actually understand the issues themselves).

Re: Productive Video
i hear you however, i dont think that will be the case in the workplace though. the use of video for things like training and customer documentation or "how to" videos typically are intended to supplement not replace other mediums in place including good "old fashioned" print & text -either electronic/digital or text book/pdf based.

The only thing I hope is that we don't all become so used to video we forget how to read. 

Look, I see the trend. People are already watching video at work. Why not take that trend and make it useful in the workplace. I'm just hoping this isn't going to completely eradicate critical thinking.
