I’ve commented several times on how standard 50-minute plus 10 for questions presentations are becoming passé. TED talks are 18 minutes. The average YouTube video is 11.7 minutes, lower than I thought, as music videos average 6.8 minutes. Even gaming videos on YouTube, the longest, are 24.7 minutes.
Another indication, today, I attended an online session from the Canadian War Museum where four excellent speakers gave 10- minute presentations.
There’s an interesting initiative from the Toronto Branch of OGS following the trend — DNA—How It Can Help Your Research.
In four parts between 18 and 26 May, starting at 7:30 pm, each evening will include several presentations of between 10 and 20 minutes.
The sessions will be recorded and available to paid registrants until about 26 June.
It looks like a deal at $20 for OGS members and $25 for non-members. Judge for yourself at https://torontofamilyhistory.org/event/dna-how-it-can-help/
