Video has the power to make us feel a bevy of emotions, but it can also teach us something. A video that is fun to watch and engaging makes it that much easier to learn new concepts and ideas. When we see those types of videos we can’t help but take notice. We are even more impressed with the creativity and innovative ways people are using video to teach us something new.
With that in mind we have been searching the web to find online video content that doesn’t just entertain, but teaches us something. We have found some amazing examples of how people use video to break complex ideas and concepts into bite-size nuggets of information that are easily comprehendible. That is why we want to recognize their efforts with the RealPlayer Video Visionary Award – Education. Later this month we’ll be announcing our first education-centric recipient here on the blog with an article highlighting the video and the video creator.
We are going to be presenting a RealPlayer Video Visionary Award – Education monthly. We see this award as a community effort and want to enlist your help in finding these remarkable recipients. As is the case with the RealPlayer Video Visionary Award – Humanitarian Award, we invite you to submit your own nominees for this award and share your thoughts on non-profit organizations that you feel are creating innovative video content.
In order to submit a series of educational videos please take the following steps when leaving a comment below:
1) Include the name and URL for the educator or educational organization you have selected
2) Briefly describe why you think it would be a good fit, and what about their video content caught your eye
3) Include URL’s to specific videos or YouTube channels so we can easily review your submission
Remember, all you need to do to nominate a video or series that aims at educating the people who watch it is submit a comment below with the information listed above. There is no e-mail address or form to complete.
We are absolutely ecstatic about this award program and look forward to sharing our first recipient later this month. Stay tuned to the RealPlayer blog for more information.
