Thanks Gregg,

someone off list (twitter) alerted to me that they were a product of CognitiveMedia.

Yes, you're right. I think the Tony Hart stuff in the old "Take Hart" series in the 70s was actually quite a similar idea - animated storyboarding.

I think what's special about the RSA/CognitiviMedia stuff is possibly

i. it's not been possible to do it over low-bandwidth video/internet devices before (e.g. Youtube or mobile phones); and

ii. their choice of topics - most of the videos I've seen are implicitly providing an argument in favour of the very media they're using (which is very clever!)

I wonder whether this kind of medium would work well for teaching procedural content rather than just general, abstract theoretical/conceptual stuff ?

What do you think?
