This video, made by Mike Wesch and his students at Kansas State, does a remarkably good job at conveying the problem. Perhaps we should be making a different type of video, a montage of this workshop and the projects that have been showcased, as a cure for the problem so to speak.
There is a different project on Campus, Writing with Video, and perhaps it would be good to partner with them, encouraging their students to create such a video. A well done job might create quite a bit of visibility for Students Engaging in Inquiry.
Here is another video by Mike Wesch that you might like. It got a lot of attention in the eLearning world.
