Given this trend, what are the different ways that video-based learning can be used in your organization to deliver an exemplary learning experience?

 

Interactive Video
The simplest explanation of an interactive video is a digital video that allows user interaction through touch, voice, clicks, and gestures. Users interact with the video by following along with tutorials, filling out forms or playing with game-like experiences. Interactive video can be used for shopping, marketing, training, or as a source of entertainment.

These videos allow you to synthesize information into an interactive project and incorporate it into your Learning Management System to track data such as employee compliance. Whether it’s an interactive tutorial or a product video, interactive videos improve learner’s retention and engagement.

Live Video
Live video or live streaming is a technology that allows you to stream a live video feed to an online audience. The only difference with the live sportscast or newscast is that anyone can do live videos, and the audience can react and comment in real time. Live videos can be used to achieve different objectives in the workplace such as in executive communication, internal meetings, franchise communication, and employee training.

Live videos allow you to quickly impart huge amounts of information to hundreds of employees. Live training sessions provide an immediacy that the other forms of training can’t compete with. These videos support real-time interaction between the learners and the trainer irrespective of their geographical locations. So, you can use live video streaming to roll out training programs to your entire workforce and get instant feedback.

 

Whiteboard Animation Videos
This is a process in which you tell a story on a whiteboard using continuous and interconnected drawings. It is a powerful learning tool. You simply draw a series of engaging animations in front of the camera (at least, that’s what it looks like!) and record the illustrated story using a whiteboard.

In conclusion, you can easily use videos in your workplace to share knowledge, communicate, collaborate, address problems, and above all, effectively train employees on everything of value to the organization.
