My professor (YES I AM NOW A UNI STUDENT) from my Introduction to Communication Studies class posted this video on our online tutorial website today. I think he is expecting us to deepen and reinforce the understanding of “Organisational Communication”, which I’m still struggling to understand because I’m not that familiar with this topic.
Anyways, the reason why I am sharing this YouTube video to you is because it is one of the most unique tutorial videos that I have seen in my life. It’s not like those old-school types where there is an ongoing narration to a powerpoint slide (well I mean that thing helps, but it’s boring isn’t it).
This YouTube clip was made by Matt Koschmann. Not sure who it is, and I do not have the time to research that up since I have a freaking pile of homework to do tonight, so if you guys are interested, go look it up yourselves (Damn demanding aren’t I? :P).
Okay, well let me get to the point then. This video is interesting not only because it thoroughly and clearly discusses the concept of Organisational Communication, but also because of the way he presents it. As you can see (if you’ve watched the video) through the 17minutes++ of his tutorial, he makes his presentation “pretty” through the use of illustration. Yes, this illustrator who contributed this video continued drawing for the whole 17 minutes of this video, which is fast-forwarded to match the narration. That’s pretty impressing right? Maybe not for you artsy people, but for a girl like me who can barely draw, this is some amazing sh*t (sorry, excuse the language). To be honest, I really like his illustration style, cute but casual, and I know this is a very typical thing to say, but this normal/academic/theoretical lecture suddenly becomes an art piece you know? It really grabs your attention. Just like how the animes you watched when you were a kid always dragged your attention anytime, anywhere.
I don’t know, maybe you weren’t fascinated as me after watching this video. But for me, the amount of effort just amazed me. And sorry for my bad quality writing, I wanted to put more effort but yea, I have other stuff to do (since I wasted the half an hour before this on Temple Run LOL). Well well well, I better get back to studying. Bye guys :)
