Hi all! Right now we have a video that explains what, why, and how to use MURAL. If you had a magic wand, what would you add, remove, or change about this video and why?

Thinking about content, visuals, sound, story, etc, what do you:

LIKE about the video?

WISH we included or removed from the video?

WONDER what other stuff might help you introduce people to MURAL?

    There's a lot I like about this, and it's a big improvement on the 50-second video I had been emailing out (apparently 1 group spent a full 5 minutes discussing whether the video was supposed to have sound, because people are weird).

    There are 3 things I don't love about it, but TBH they're not deal breakers - I'd still use this as is.

    1. The gigantic comments on the mural board examples... I find that when people use the comment feature, I have no idea they've used it until it's pointed out. So, would prefer you just delete the comment images.
    2. Highlighting the "ask to be followed" and "summon" features - since I only use Mural when I'm facilitating client groups, I don't really want those folks to just start asking to be followed, willy-nilly. On the other hand, letting people know that they can follow the facilitator by clicking on their image at the bottom would be GREAT.
    3. You recommend people set up their zoom settings before the meeting starts. I do send out a Mural sandbox and people can set zoom settings then, I think, but not everyone does this - in a client facilitation situation, this is recommending someone do a thing they don't have access to.

    Hey @Gina this is incredibly helpful thank you for sharing what we can do to help make this video really stand out and be helpful to you. Looking at it from the participant perspective is key.

    When you say "in a client facilitation situation, this is recommending someone do a thing they don't have access to." Can you say more about that? I don't exactly know what you mean here and want to be sure I get it right.

    I really like the video! I think it is the right length, engaging and insightful.

    WISH:

    • Explain that the delegates can zoom in by using the roller ball on their mouse and the ctrl +/- on the keyboard. In the video you say to set the zoom up in Mural but the info regarding how to quickly zoom is missed a bit
    • Explain that there are lots of different types of Murals which they may experience which will be tailored to the goal of the meeting (as they may watch this video and assume it is only the Murals you showed which exist)

    Thanks for creating this video! Really useful :)

    Thanks @Angela that's helpful! It sounds like there needs to be more about the physical setup and use in addition to the actual working in the software, which is great to know.

    @hailey thanks for asking...

    LIKE

    Not surprising - some of the best things about this video are:

    your energy, pacing, sense of humor and the way you seamlessly make the features accessible.

    WISH

    that the captioning on you tube didn't hide the bottom of the Mural screen

    WONDER

    about including a few examples of when a facilitator will be asking for the use of these features - or how they will be useful in their upcoming workshop

    about limiting the number of or focus on gifs so people don't think they are required in order to be proficient 'muralistas'
