Unifying, Communicating and Advocating: Video and Knowledge Stream
Videos for all?
In our digital and always-connected age, it seems almost everyone loves a good video. Did you know “how to” videos are the second most popular type of video viewed on YouTube (behind “product review” videos)? Videos are a great way to share your practical information.
To help ANR staff and academics learn to make effective videos, the Strategic Initiatives leaders are planning a series of “how to produce good video” workshops. Stay tuned for early 2020.
Want to get involved? We welcome suggestions (content) that you can send to any of the SI leaders. We also welcome suggestions on people to help plan and implement the video workshops. We will also support webinars on this topic (e.g., WebANR or SI Spotlight Webinars).
The workshops will be implemented in partnership with Strategic Communications, News and Information Outreach in Spanish (NOS), UC IPM and the Communications Advisory Board.
Knowledge Stream gains traction
Got practical information to help people? You can help people find your practical information. Interest in and contributions to the Knowledge Stream blog (“news you can use”) is growing. These practical stories connect people to solutions for their real-world problems. The stories are not only featured in the Knowledge Stream blog, but can be featured on one of the six Focus Areas of the ANR website and/or one of the flexible UC ANR home page tiles.
Submit your story at https://ucanr.edu/blogs/KnowledgeStream. Remember to include links to your practical information sources.
