using multimedia for science, health news

Complete video of a seminar last week on "Using Multimedia to Communicate Health and Science News" is now available here online, with demos, slides, handouts and full video of the panel of reporters and communicators speaking about online video, social media and more. The panel included:
Karl Bates, Director of Research Communications, Duke University News & Communications
Nils Bruzelius, Deputy National Editor/Science, Washington Post
Tom Kennedy, Managing Editor for Multimedia, Washington Post
Art Chimes, Producer-host of Our World, Voice of America
Jorge Ribas, Video Producer, Discovery News
The seminar was hosted by Eurekalert!, the online research news site from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Best advice from Karl Bates of Duke University: "Keep it short. Aim for 90 seconds...If you think people are ruthless with a TV remote in their hands, watch somebody with a mouse in their hands." Couldn't agree more...

Thanks so much for this, Denise!

I have met Karl before & as much as it pains a Tar Heel to say it, they have really got it going on at Duke Research.

I will bookmark this & use it as a resource & reference point.

Happy Holidays!
