DI Videos


These are the results of the DI video auction. Each subteam is responsible for delivering a video describing an exciting digital innovation implemented at their assigned company.
The objective of the video is to illustrate the innovation, how it works, and its business value.

Length: about 5 minutes.
Audience: the Comm4250 class.
Your video can include segments downloaded from the web, pics, screen recordings (e.g., create a PowerPoint animation and record it for inclusion in your video), as well as recordings of your team members.
Audio track: feel free to overlay your voices and your soundtracks to whatever audio the original video has.
Sources: recognize your sources. Overlay text at the end of the video.
Hint: you do not have to offer a comprehensive survey of all the innovations that your company has to offer. Focus on the coolest one/ones. Wow us.


Before class, test the equipment. Make sure that the video shows well and that the audio works.

In class, each team will briefly introduce themselves and the company. For some companies (e.g., amazon) this can be fairly short. For others (e.g., Oxford Nanopore) you will have to explain a little more: what does the company do? To whom do they sell it? How big are they? Who do they compete against? Are they successful? Give us enough context so that the video makes sense. After that, the team will present the video and then lead a 10 minute conversation about what we saw. Ask the audience if they have comments or questions, and if time allows be prepared to challenge the audience with some thought-provoking thoughts / questions about the presented innovation. We expect the team to be reasonably well informed (albeit not omniscient) about what they showed. Extra credit for connecting the video to the concepts discussed in class. However, if the connection is not there or is not particularly insightful, do not force it.
