If you are facilitating an e-discovery training class in a room with internet access, why not take full advantage of it and open your session with a video to break the ice. You Tube has several pretty good videos to choose from, I’ll post some of my favorites over the next few weeks.
I like to use the videos as conversation starters or to quickly introduce a concept or idea that may be new to my audience. It helps me to determine what my students may or may not already be familiar with so that I don’t waste their time covering something they already know.
Here’s a series of animated videos using beloved “Star Trek” characters to address various common e-discovery issues, concepts and best practices.
Episode 1 of 5: Cooperation & The FRCP
Episode 2 of 5: Working with Vendors
Episode 3 of 5: Training Lawyers
Episode 4 of 5: Case Example – Sanctions
Episode 5 of 5: Proportionality
These are fun videos even if you’re not that much of a Trekkie! Thanks Ralph Losey, for posting them to YouTube!
Litigation Support & e-Discovery Trainers, let me know how these work out for you in your class room and what other videos you have discovered that help you get the message of e-discovery across to your students.
