Short attention span lectures

Here is a Powerpoint presentation of recommendations for print journos learning to use video — the slides have been remixed via a website called Animoto.  You upload the slides, they let you select some music and viola — a 30-second music video.  Is this the future or I am just a sucker for glitzy toys?

Update: The Chronicle of Higher Education is reporting that students watching videos of professors’ lectures are running them at up to twice their normal speed.
