Returning to CiviCRM videos after some time on other projects, the team at Circle Interactive are now starting to think again about developing a CiviCRM community video project based on the ideas in Young Jin’s blog of Feb 2012.
There are a range of materials that can be distributed to organisations interested in CiviCRM. These are currently available on http://civicrm.org/content/spreadtheword
Anyone is welcome to take these, adapt them for their own purposes and distribute. We should be thinking about whether the content is appropriate and getting them translated into more languages to help penetration into areas where English is not the first or predominant language.
Following a couple of discussions of this, the consensus seems to be that having good coordinated training materials is important to a maturing product to give confidence to organisations buying into the ecosystem. The doumentation has moved along considerably in the new book and this structure seems a reasonable place to start for creating a set of training videos.
Anyone currently working on video?
Last Friday we had the first CiviCRM marketing meeting on irc. Nine people contributed and a couple more were unable to attend due to being on trains or planes. It felt like a good starting point and some encouraging thoughts came out of it. This is a quick synopsis.
