Video learning has some definite advantages. Many individuals are visual learners. When you combine narrative with video, people can see and interpret information much faster. The saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words” is accurate according to the research. Employee training videos are incredibly powerful training tools that make content come alive and engages viewers. Every individual is getting the same effective training and information with every training module. This consistency is important to be sure everyone is operating at the same high level. The result? Reduction of costly errors.
Video also solves the time dilemma. You create the training videos once and then leverage them wherever and whenever you need them. No more scheduling nightmares, use them for online training videos or as a supplement to face-to-face training. If you do need to make changes or adjustments down the road, you can do so without having to recreate the entire training. Using video means employee development and learning is more accessible and more cost-effective in the long-term.
Access is also critical. With the proliferation of smart devices, online video-based training can literally be at the user’s fingertips in the office, on the plant floor, or at home on the couch. Accessibility creates effective training videos which encourage employee learning.
We’ve created all kinds of training videos for employees including:
- Safety Training Videos
- Customer Service Training Videos
- Sales Training Videos
- Compliance Videos
These are just a few types of videos that we can produce for your company. If you have a specific need for employee training videos, our team will work with you to develop a custom solution.
One important thing to note, many organizations that use video training may be annoying their viewers instead of engaging them. The typical mistakes are easy to spot – poor quality video content, shaky shots, poor audio, and bad composition. Video training must be high quality. And if it’s fun, that’s even better.
As an alternative to realistic video, consider a whiteboard video. A whiteboard video is another way to condense information, educate, and present problems and solutions. The style of these can range from simple drawings to detailed illustrations.
Done well, video training can be used to efficiently and effectively communicate while also saving money.
