Watched a webinar from the ICOI this evening on my iPAD – captured screen shots of the presentation as I watched it – see photos below (sampling). Increasingly apparent, that whether a simulcast or an archived presentation, the ability to review material and capture samples from the presentation with “screen capture APPS” is going to make a huge difference in the “amount” of CE one can attend. Real time will always be real time for hands on, but increasingly, online content provision has to take hold. The best example is a year ago, Dental XP had 11K members, in 2012 – they are fast approaching 100K….and about to go mobile.
Read this snippet from the referenced article, granted it’s from Fox News and Sarah Palin is on staff, so accuracy comes into question………however, “Has America’s love affair with bigger and better TVs gone sour? According to a survey from Accenture, people are watching less broadcast and cable TV. Less than a third intend to buy a new TV in 2012. Smartphones, tablets and computers are eroding traditional TV viewing — bad news for TV manufacturers and traditional content providers. The online survey of 10,000 adults in 10 countries, including 1,000 in the U.S., found that the percentage of people watching broadcast or cable TV in a typical week on televisions fell from 71 percent in 2009 to 48 percent in 2011. The percentage of consumers who intend to buy a TV set during the next 12 months also declined, from 35 percent in 2010 to 32 percent in 2011″. Break one tradition, you start an avalanche of breakage…..first thing to go, all day presentations….divide them up reasonably into webcast or webinar segments and their serviceability simply has to be greater….you’re never going to experience information overload, fall asleep at 2 o’clock after a high carb lunch or find there is no toilet paper in the bathroom……
3-D TV Without Glasses
Toshiba America CEO Mark Simons on the latest tablets and new 3-D technology. “Craving an always-on, always-connected lifestyle, consumers increasingly are using other consumer electronics devices in their daily lives to access the entertainment that only TV once provided,” Mitch Cline, global managing director of Accenture’s Electronics & High-Tech Group, said in a statement. More than half (56 percent) of the survey respondents indicated they have changed their behaviors due to online services and cloud computing. Nearly one-third (32 percent) have stopped, or almost stopped, renting or buying DVDs and 26 percent stream media content. In a typical week, 33 percent of consumers now watch shows, movies or videos on their PCs, and 10 percent are watching such programs on their smartphones .
