A recently funded new company called Sunday Sky is worth keeping an eye on for its potential to augment learning and content. Another one of those simple yet powerful ideas I think and what Sunday Sky does is to automatically turn your web content into videos.
More difficult to describe than to just learn by example so check out this example of how ePlans.com an architectural home plan design company is using this. Click on the video obviously and you’ll quickly see how Sunday Sky has enabled them to convert what would have been separate and rather static home plans and pictures and assembled them into a mashup collection in video format.
No doubt we will see commercial sites such sa ePlans use this first but start to think about how YOU could use this ability to convert some of your content into different formats such as video to make them more accessable, more compelling, more engaging and more customized to fit each individual you are reaching.
As per my mentioning here several times before I’m a big fan of the RSA animations and so this Sunday Sky example has me wondering if there might be a way for “the rest of us” to be able to take some of our content and have it automagically converted into a video along the lines of an RSA animation?
Anyway, wanted to bring this recent example to your attention of how mashups are enabling the Snowflake Effect of mass customization to reach more and more people in more and more ways.
