NECC Cool idea #3: Short Videos to Introduce Complex Subjects

OK–admit it. Everyone understands something in a class and the professor asks, “OK–any questions?” Everyone rolls their eyes, and you think, “I have NO clue!” and are too embarrassed to say anything?

Do you really know how Twitter works? What’s the history of the World Wide Web? Do you need a difficult subject explained in layman’s terms?

Common Craft to your rescue! To quote their website: Our videos may surprise you. They’re short and simple. They use paper cut-outs. They cover subjects “in Plain English.” But lurking under the simple surface are lessons that have been crafted with great care. Despite our fun and lighthearted style, we take explanation seriously. The site is worth a visit!

Oh, and what IS Twitter about?
