Al mejor estilo MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) Yotube publica cursos online.

 

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, May 31, 2013 10:27 PM

I WILL be taking this.  Sounds like a great idea.  I'm convinced that a lot of the stuff the 'gurus' put in their courses (the ones they charge for) is freely available somewhere.  In the case of YouTube, I know for a fact that they publish a LOT of good stuff that's totally free....e.g. the YouTube Creators Playbook (that I found over a year ago).

 

I am also convinced that understand just this one simple, well-known tool of YouTube is (all by itself) a highly marketable skill.  I'll bet if you walked into 10 businesses and just said, "Hi, my name is Art Williams.  I'm a YouTube consultant.  Are you doing anything with YouTube to build your business?" it would lead to several people expressing interest.

 

I think the key to making that kind of prospecting work would be to have several different 'products' or services available.  Some people will need to be nurtured for a bit before they finally give you some real business....kinda like going into a Denny's and ordering an iced-tea first and then deciding that you really are hungry.

Video is a fast and involving way to build engaging content. Here's an online course from YouTube.

Pacific's Tokelau first territory in the world on solar energy

Pacific's Tokelau first territory in the world on solar energy | WereldBeeld | Scoop.it

The remote Pacific islands of Tokelau have become the first territory in the world to generate their electricity entirely from solar energy, in a project hailed as an environmental milestone. Before the solar power grid was completed, the New Zealand-administered grouping of three coral atolls, with a population of just 1,500, relied on diesel generators for electricity. Project coordinator Mike Bassett-Smith said the diesel was not only environmentally unfriendly, it also cost the islands, which lie about halfway between New Zealand and Hawaii, around NZ$1.0 million ($825,000) a year.

 

Bassett-Smith, from New Zealand firm PowerSmart Solar, said the change would allow Tokelau to switch money from fuel purchases to social welfare projects. "For Tokelau, this milestone is of huge importance for their continued well-being," he said in a statement received Wednesday. "Many Pacific nations struggle to provide a high proportion of their people access to electricity, and even when they do, access to affordable electricity is a significant additional challenge." New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully said the US$7.0 million project had achieved a world first and Wellington was working with other Pacific nations such as Tonga and the Cook Islands to develop renewable energy.

A billion brains

A billion brains | WereldBeeld | Scoop.it

A survey by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors estimates that in 2010 India had just over 500,000 civil engineers when it needed nearly 4m, and 45,000 architects when it needed 366,000. It predicts that by 2020 the cumulative shortfall of core professionals involved in the building trade could be in the tens of millions.

 

The shortages extend far beyond the construction industry. The editor of a new magazine, the Caravan, says finding skilled staff is next to impossible because local education is “extremely bad”. A manufacturer moans that even if you find capable staff, they quickly flit off to the next job.

Curate Your Live Interactive Real-Time Community Hub with Livefyre StreamHub

Robin Good: StreamHub is a new web app which allows you to create social community web sites around any topic, and to bring them to life by being able to curate social media content coming from Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. 

 

What makes StreamHub unique, is its ability to show new content and comments in real-time, and to filter incoming relevant content from selected social channels to match specific criteria before being published. Auto-curation at work?  

 

From Techcrunch: "There are two big pieces to the new system. First, there’s the Core product, which allows publishers and brands to engage their audience directly.

 

The tools to make that happen include Livefyre’s commenting system, as well as liveblogging, live chats, and custom apps.

 

All of the Core services are linked by the ability for publishers and readers to have conversations in real-time.

...

The second major StreamHub product is Curate, which allows companies to add live content from elsewhere on the social web to their sites.

 

So you could embed a live stream of tweets to a web page, and you could also set up a number of rules around the stream — if you only want photos, or if you only want tweets from within a certain geographic area.

So for example, a sports site could use Curate to create a stream of photos shared by fans that are coming from a specific game."
