Here's a great idea from Dick Eastman. He found himself pinch-hitting at the Family History Expo in Mesa, AZ over the weekend, speaking about Footnote for Beau Sharbrough, who wasn't able to make it. On the fly, he decided to use a video on RootsTelevision.com to get his presentation going and it worked brilliantly!
You can read all about Dick's experiment and how he did it here.
l've shown videos on RootsTelevision.com at assorted events -- sometimes to demo the site itself and sometimes in the format of mini-film festivals on topics such as DNA or Annie Moore. But I had never thought about others doing this and I have to say that I like the idea!
Societies often tell us that they're now using RootsTelevision.com to pre-screen speakers, and I suppose we have enough videos up there from various conferences now (check out the Conference channel) that speakers could check out conferences as well!
If you have any other creative ideas for using RootsTelevision.com, I'd sure like to hear them!
