Online Visual Explanation: Plastic Bottles & Ocean Pollution

We’re living in a time of information overload and complexity, inundated with too much information and too little time to get through it. I believe that visual explanations, such as video and online presentations, will be an important tool for organizations to convey their message, whether that’s selling a product or advocating action of some other kind. To that end, I’ve jumped in to developing online presentations, videos and screencasts as visual explanations. I’ve also recently become interested in ocean advocacy. So, I developed an online presentation to explain some of the issues concerning the health of our oceans in the hope of raising awareness. Check it out below. If you have trouble viewing the embedded version below, you can view it on my SlideShare page.

What I like about this online presentation format is that it easily allows a visual explanation to easily go viral, whether it’s of your product or service, or explaining an issue or a concept. The share and embed features, like you see on many videos, allow other web sites and blogs to put your explanation on their site.

If you’ve got a product, service, issue or concept that you’d like explained in an online presentation or screencast video, contact me. If you’re motivated by the presentation above to learn more about ocean issues and get involved, visit my SaveTheOcean blog for more information.
