This video has been making the rounds on social media over the last week. San Francisco designer Karen X. Cheng taught herself how to dance over the past year through sheer persistence. It’s pretty impressive to see her go from doing a pretty dorky robot on day 3 to a fully choreographed routine on day 365.

Something struck me when I was reading her blog about the experience. She was using video every step of the way. First, she used video to help her illustrate what she needed to work on. Quickly communicating complex ideas and information has never been easier than it is right now and Karen was able to use video to capture that information and communicate it to herself in a way that she could easily digest and understand it. Business video is no different. In the business world, we’re not teaching ourselves to dance; we’re helping each other to learn.

The second thing that struck me is that she learned almost everything she knew about dancing from YouTube. You could search YouTube right now for almost anything you could possibly want to learn and chances are you would find a tutorial within the first five hits.

With a social video portal in your business, you can create a wealth of knowledge for your employees so they can take their YouTube learning habits from home and bring them to work.

Learning the dance of putting video to work in the enterprise can be difficult. We’re still in the early days of figuring out how video will reshape the way we work, learn and interact. With video as a dance partner, however, we’re learning faster than ever.
