5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

John Burik's curator insight, June 20, 2013 10:27 AM

Sharing knowledge is a way to increase happiness for many of us. At the same time it's a good idea to consider how much information we are sharing in which particular context. As we've recently learned even searching for information can have its cost in the amount of personal information we are sharing. While google has been my first choice for many years I'll likely be using http://duckduckgo.com much more frequently.

Andrea Norwood's comment, June 24, 2013 11:00 AM
I love it when others share information with me, whether it be business, political, in which I am not all that much into, but it still helps to know what's happening in the world of politics, or whether it be history of old or new, knowledge is the key to life and especially education.

[INFOGRAPHIC] The Psychology of Colors in Marketing - | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it
When you’re developing a new brand story, redesigning a logo, or setting up an ecommerce site, it’s important to remember a very powerful marketing tool – color.

Move over Power Points, and static pages, enter VLogging and Youtube! The world has come a long way since the times of power point presentations, and why not when you can have the advantage of video! Videos make for better engagement of the audience, they appear to be more human, and yes there is less of print matter!
