My team is responsible for Lotus and WebSphere Portal product documentation, online help, technical articles, learning material and more -- anything that helps customers get the most out of our products. One thing we hear from customers over and over is "show us a task, with screenshots and videos!" Well, we've taken that to heart and have focused on producing more multimedia technical content over the last couple of years.
But we realize there is a lot of expertise in the Lotus community OUTSIDE of our organization, both within and beyond IBM. So last week we launched an event called VideoFest, which is aimed at: 1) raising awareness of multimedia content, 2) encouraging the community to share their own Lotus videos, and 3) recognizing community contributions.
How VideoFest works
Upload your videos to YouTube or another video service, then embed them into Lotus product wiki articles. Then, be sure to publicize your article using the new share feature, which allows you to share the article via Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more.
