Microlectures, microteaching

A microlecture. Sixty seconds in length. These are brief, focused lectures. Hard to call them lectures. Imagine that they are the essence of an hour-long lecture - the key, salient points. 20 second introduction, 20 second body (key terms, or content), and 20 second conclusion. This instructional strategy focuses on application of knowledge by answering questions. While these are thought of as audio files, as video files they could introduce images. Interesting concept to think about.

Do we need a full hour for a lecture? Do we need to lecture? Something to think about.
