As new media evolves we here at Health Train Express and Digital Health Space realize that our content can and will be more accessible with expansion of our presence in video and audio content to supplement our blog posts.
New Media today is far more that blogging, tweeting, or written content. It encompasses the rich spaces of audio, and video. Some of us absorb content differently much like the multi-pronged approach to education. In the next several weeks the content of Health Train Express and Digital Health Space will be offered on YouTube Video, and mp3 using ‘Sound Cloud. Readers will now be able to receive important comments and opinions on health IT, health reform as well as general Health and Wellness Events. The content will be from over 200 of our usual sources.
Whether you are on the bus, commuting to work, at the beach we will be available, as long as it is daylight in Southern California (even weekends). Using your smart device, listen to or watch….This is your chance to be the center of information for your colleagues.
The audio portion of YouTube recordings can be extracted using Format Factory
In addition to those platforms we have expanded to Pinterest and Newsana. Pinterest is a poster-like presentation platform which seizes your visual attention and directs you to the deepdyve of the content.
Newsana, in a similar vein, offers an attention-getting meme, lyric and related link.
Until the 1980s media relied primarily upon print and analog broadcast models, such as those of television and radio. The last twenty-five years have seen the rapid transformation into media which are predicated upon the use of digital technologies, such as the Internet and video games. However, these examples are only a small representation of new media. The use of digital computers has transformed the remaining 'old' media, as suggested by the advent of digital television and online publications. Even traditional media forms such as the printing press have been transformed through the application of technologies such as image manipulation software like Adobe Photoshop and desktop publishing tools.
The power of new media is that it does not require ‘scaling’ or increasing sales of print documents, nor using different ‘old media’ models. We are witnessing the evolution of a universal interconnected network of audio, video, and electronic text communications that will blur the distinction between interpersonal and mass communication and between public and private communication"
