eLearning videos can be used in so many different scenarios around the workplace. They are very versatile and it is an ideal medium for delivering formal training. The best part about these eLearning videos is that you don’t need to pay a professional to run the training session over and over again! The question is, how effective are your eLearning videos at doing what they’re meant to do?
So, here’s a quick guide to creating eLearning videos that are successful. After all, we all want total audience participation right?
Don’t be afraid to branch out and reach out
This is why branching is a brilliant solution. It is a way to ensure that your videos cater to a wide range of individuals and their knowledge base. How is this achieved? By incorporating a comprehensive menu at the start of the video. This enables viewers to select chapters that are most suitable to them. Additionally, presenting branching menus at intervals throughout the video will then allow viewers to shape the direction of their training according to their individual needs and scenarios.
Test and recap
These insightful and useful interactions could come in several forms. Whether they be multiple choice or one-off questions or even game-like scenarios such as filling in the blanks.
Pass me the zoom lens!
Whatever exercises you’ve introduced to your video to measure knowledge, take the opportunity to compile a neat report they can refer to in future. Examples of such could be anything ranging from a numerical score to gradings.
