Information for G02839

Promoting information-sharing in Ghana using video blogging (PLA 59)

Prince Deh

Journal article

Prince Deh describes the use of video blogging by the Ghana Information Network for Knowledge Sharing (GINKS). Similar to a blog, a video blog - or 'vlog' for short - contains short segments of video content. Usually in the form of interviews, these vlogs help members to share information about work and experiences. Deh also considers the potentials of vlogging for advocacy purposes, as well as the challenges inherent in using Web 2.0 tools in countries such as Ghana, where Internet access is still mostly limited to urban areas.
