I continue to discover creative and instant 3-minute or less videos from YouTube. The effort to prepare a 3-minute video may require 2-3 hours. But the impact and usefulness of the video is outstanding. See this example for fun!
Imagine if many of us in e-Learning learn to develop short, concise messages, it would dramatically change our learners' perception of the training value.
In Web 2.0, presentations must be short and focused on value, otherwise no one views and no one spreads, in viral ways, the material. In e-learning, since the topics are usually forced down the throat of learners, e-learning developers are callous to the sentiments of learners.
