Stop reading, start watching – using video for knowledge capture, sharing and transfer
27/11/2013 Leave a comment
Knowledge capture, sharing and transfer are core aspects of knowledge management activities and, as many knowledge managers know, different approaches are required for different situations and for different types of knowledge.
The use of video to help capture, share and transfer knowledge (particularly tacit knowledge) is not a new idea. That said it is an idea that is being innovatively used by JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) to produce a peer-reviewed scientific video journal.
Knowledge managers may wish to take a quick look at Jove’s web site to get a flavour (you can see the first 20 seconds of some videos without the need to subscribe) of their approach and for further ideas (try their blog) about how to capture, share and transfer knowledge (in this case the reproducibility of scientific experiments) that is difficult, if not impossible, to write down.
