What is more powerful words images videos or a mashup?

By December 6, 2013Blogs

We know that the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words” is true especially when teaching complicated ideas. Could videos that are a sequence of pictures be more powerful? Even better, could a mashup of text, drawings and video be the best way to show and tell?

I experienced this the other day when a good friend who is an Origami expert had come over. He amazed us with some stunning creations, beautiful birds and animals and one simple steam boat. We all thought it would be a great idea to write up an instructional manual for our neighborhood kids who could use it for small projects at school. Using text alone the article seemed very confusing and it was almost impossible for the children to use it and make even the simplest paper boat. Drawings would help. However we went one step further and video graphed my friend folding the paper boat. But the video alone was hard to follow as he was fast and the details were not visible.
So we mashed up the video along with a few drawings of the paper being folded and created a kapsule on kPoint. Here is what we came up with.

In the past making multimedia learning content was hard to do. Lots of editing and efforts was required. Now, using tools like kPoint it is possible to create very clear and easy to understand material that everyone can learn from. This also applies to using new products, fixing broken ones, or maintaining them! A new era of words, images and video is making learning fun and accessible to all.
