Thanks to Scott Monty’s Social Media blog, I just discovered Common Craft’s “in plain English” digital shorts. If you haven’t seen one yet, stop whatever you’re doing and go check out their Web site. Using a format they call “Paperworks”, the smarties at Common Craft explain subjects (mostly related to social media) “in plain English” using short, unique and understandable videos. For example, “Podcasting in plain English”, “Twitter in plain English”, etc. And the best part? They share them on YouTube for free. They also offer downloadable versions that are licensed for the workplace.
Here is one of my faves. “Social Media in Plain English”
