For the past year-and-something I have been unable to add Vimeo videos to my List.ly collection, as they did not show well. Yesterday I tried again and it turns out it works again. The only problem is that they have changed their business model, so I can only add new videos to my existing list until I pay…
Let me share some recent finds with you, while I ponder what to do. (Suggestions welcome, although the thought of moving all those vids to the 4th platform does not really make me happy; the thought of paying is not much better 🙂 )
As we are launching our intranet in a few weeks, I have decided to do only demo’s this time.
1. The Vine (Financial Services, USA)
Intranet demo for a bank. The intranet looks quite friendly, and not very corporate. It has to do with the font that they use for headers. Interesting to see that makes such a difference! The intranet has many pages and a deep structure, from the look of menu’s and all.
I like the request to update your profile, although they ask too many things, in my opinion. But hey, if it works for them, that’s all that matters!
Tip for presenters: do not move your cursor around too much while talking. It can make your audience restless. Instead, try to keep your cursor at the exact item you would like to show.

2. 4Cs Connect (Insurance, UK)
I really need to make a list of all intranets called “Connect”. There are so many! 🙂 This one is based on SharePoint.
Very nice overview of this intranet, which looks pretty clean and has a megamenu in the top navigation. It explains the basics in a straightforward way, together with text balloons. The voice is a tad mechanic, I wonder if the narrator is trying too hard be very neutral.
I realy like the clear and concise explanation of the search function, the call for feedback, and the instructions for mobile. It is really a good inspiration for our own video-to-be! s

3. Intranet for VIB (Flemish research institute – Belgium)
Well, this must be computer-spoken as the words sometimes have an incorrect intonation. This makes it a bit boring to listen to.
Clean-looking intranet, with several personalization options and a very nice People finder! (Microsoft, can you take a good look, please?) I also like their Roadmap, and the fact that it is visible to everyone.

4. Sioen (Industrial textiles – Belgium)
The spoken word in Dutch, with English subtitles. Now and then you will see that it has been built on SharePoint.
I really like their shared documentation, such as standard materials, business presentations, templates and logo’s. Having those in one central place can save everyone time!

That’s it for this time, folks!
