After a few weeks prep, and a lot of fun we have launched the Little Online Learning Video (LOL_V) project. The concept is simple and something that everyone can get involved in.
LOL_v 🙂 is a library of innovative, challenging, helpful or just plain funny learning moments for you to enjoy, listen and learn, change your behaviour and / or contribute to. There’s a blooper reel as well!
We’ve produced a resources page on our website where you can download the Picky Polka music and the graphics to bookend your own LOL_v productions. If your not sure how to assemble them, we’ll do it for you and send you the finished article.
The idea is simple; a very short face to camera quote, tip or fact filmed with an interesting background from around the world. Don’t take it too seriously, it’s about enjoyment as much as it’s about learning. If you are a trainer with a video camera, or just know some good ideas that could help others then join in the fun with us.
The project is based upon the fact that you really can grow your brain. Experts have proven exercising your brain is like exercising your muscles, the more you do it, the stronger it becomes.
Here’s some ways that LOL_v 🙂 can help you give your brain a workout: Choose a topic or pick one at random, watch a video moment, and then commit it to memory. Try to recall the fact or tip as much as possible over the next few days. If the moment has provided you with some advise, work out how to implement it and try to move the knowledge into practice as soon as an opportunity arises. Alternatively, just launch in and click through a bunch of learning moments until something strikes you as valuable – then make a difference in some way with that knowledge.
At the time of writing we have already accumulated over 50 LOL_v moments. Search through them from this link, and then why not start posting your own.
