Knowledge, Learning, Community

I'm not a fan of the clickbait title of this post (also posted on LinkedIn today) and I also question some of the 'research' behind the suggestions. But overall this is a pretty good post and contains a lot of things to think about, even if you don't follow them. This is especially the case for the bits about working memory and cognitive load. But there's a general message here - that video is more about perception and feelings than it is about content and remembering - that is important. Video helps you learn because it shakes your perceptions and has you asking questions, not because it gives you stuff to memorize.
