I've used Common Craft videos at Intel since 2009 and the reaction from my co-workers is always the same - delight. I do internal presentations frequently and tell the audience that I'm going to show a video that will explain something complex in only 3-4 minutes - and they laugh. Then I show the video. Every single time, the audience applauds and I am deluged with compliments and questions about the video.
As a educational technology instructional consultant my audience is primarily school teachers who are just beginning to familiarize themselves with Web 2.0/ Social Media tools. Often these teachers don't think they can "do technology" and the Common Craft videos help them realize that Web 2.0 isn't as complicated as they think it is. I like to address questions as they arise during my instruction through the use of stories and analogies. Common Craft videos provide great stories that serve as starting points for addressing questions about Web 2.0 tools.
Common Craft videos allow viewers to consume hard-to-explain ideas in a very simple format. People are amazed at how thoroughly the videos can explain so much. I'm excited about the possibilities of new learning opportunities that simple explanations like Common Craft Videos can bring to our students, faculty and staff.
