Images have a power to quickly convey ideas that far outstrips words, but when words and images are skillfully combined (no of course your boss’ dry Powerpoints dont count!), then you have something rather special on your hands. A fact that hasn’t slipped past the RSA, who have combined some of their lectures with the artistic talents of Cognitive Media for the RSAnimate: Bringing discourse to life series of animated scribing videos. Presenting the lectures in this way makes them infinitely more digestible and memorable. If only I’d had a personal scrib with me through my uni days.
I’ve included Philip Zimbardo’s The Secret Powers of Time and Jeremy Rifkin’s Empathic Civilisation below, but you can follow and comment on the full series here.
