New Technologies to Support Short Form Video-Centric Storytelling and Target Learners Globally

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 4 marzo 2019

NEW YORK (PRWEB) According to a study by Cisco in 2019, 80% of the World’s internet traffic will be video. In a new interview with C.M. Rubin, founder of CMRubinworld, Anurag Dwivedi, co-founder of video creation platform Rocketium, says enhancing communication and collaboration skills via video creation is essential to enable learners to “flourish in the 21st century.” Dwivedi’s Rocketium platform allows teams of creators from any part of the world to work collaboratively on video projects in one innovative space and produce stories at the speed and scale they need. No previous video creation training is needed by the user. The company has automated the majority of the time-consuming tasks of the video creation process including one-click styling, automatic resizing of videos in different aspect ratios for different social platforms, as well as providing creators automatic translation of content into over 120 languages. The platform provides advanced controls for styling and sequence timing for users, enabling creators to customize styles in a way which Dwivedi claims no other video creation platform can provide. Rocketium creators have an online customer service team to support users’ production questions throughout the creation process. Dwivedi says the job of today’s storyteller “is to use our tools to create the most impactful video story you can without worrying about the design or styling aspect of video making.” Rocketium makes video creation quick, simple, and accessible on browsers and mobile apps. The company wants to democratise video creation by enabling anyone to create quality video stories in minutes.CMRubinWorld’s award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, brings together distinguished thought leaders in education and innovation from around the world to explore the key learning issues faced by most nations. The series has become a highly visible platform for global discourse on 21st century learning, offering a diverse range of innovative ideas which are presented by the series founder, C. M. Rubin, together with the world’s leading thinkers. (by CMRubinWorld)

Greenpeace: Study – 100% renewable energy globally by 2050 possible

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 21 settembre 2015

berlinoBerlin, 21 September 2015 – The investment necessary to move toward 100% renewable energy by 2050 would be more than covered by future savings in fuel costs, according to a ground-breaking new report from Greenpeace, researched in collaboration with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).The Energy [R]evolution scenario 2015 also says more jobs would be created in the energy sector – with the solar industry alone employing as many people in the future as the coal industry does today. Its detailed data compares different regions of the world.
Within 15 years, renewables’ share of electricity could triple from 21% today to 64% — almost two thirds of global electricity supply could come from renewable energy. Even with the rapid development of countries like Brazil, China and India, CO2 emissions could fall from the current 30 gigatonnes a year to 20 gigatonnes by 2030. In jobs, the solar PV industry could employ 9.7 million people by 2030, more than 10 times as many as it does today. Jobs in wind power could grow to 7.8 million over the same period. Sven Teske of Greenpeace, the lead author of the report, said: “The solar- and wind industries have come of age, and are cost-competitive with coal. It is very likely they will overtake the coal industry in terms of jobs and energy supplied within the next decade. ““It’s the responsibility of the fossil fuel industry to prepare for these changes in the labour market and make provisions. Governments need to manage the dismantling of the fossil fuel industry which is moving rapidly into irrelevance. Every dollar invested in new fossil fuel projects is high risk capital which might end up as stranded investment.”The necessary investment is more than covered by savings in future fuel costs. The average additional investment needed in renewables until 2050 is about $1 trillion a year. Because renewables don’t require fuel, the savings over the same period are $1.07 trillion a year, so more than meet the costs of the required investment, with the cross-over point happening between 2025 and 2030.Kumi Naidoo, the Executive Director of Greenpeace International, said: “We must not let lobbying by vested interests in the fossil fuel industry stand in the way of a switch to renewable energy, the most effective and fairest way to deliver a clean and safe energy future, so more than meet the costs of the investment.“I would urge all those who say ‘it can’t be done’ to read this report and recognise that it can be done, it must be done and it will be for the benefit of everyone if it is done.”The Paris climate summit, in less than three months, offers global leaders the opportunity to take the necessary and critical steps to fight climate change, by accelerating the steady transformation of the world’s energy sector, away from fossil fuels and towards 100% renewable energy by mid-century.Naidoo adds: ‘With this Greenpeace scenario, the Paris climate agreement must deliver a long term vision for phasing out coal, oil, gas and nuclear energy by mid-century, reaching the goal of 100% renewables with energy access for all.”
