Webinar Recording Details



Most videos in training and elearning are talking heads, lecture-type presentations or demonstration of a product or process.  Case in point: your training director suddenly decides that it is good for the CEO to present an idea.

In another instance, your company has a library of videos which can be re-purposed for training. They are costly and took long to produce, hence, the need to be “put to good use.”

However, they are oftentimes, boring and fail to engage learners and teach the content.

In this webinar, Ray Jimenez will discuss these topics:
  • What do you do with really boring lecture and demo type videos ?  How do you make them engaging?
  • What do you look for in a video and how do you find opportunities to add interactions?
  • What are the steps to augment your videos with interactions like discovery exercises, games, test exercises and activities to improve retention and recall?
  • If you are to start from scratch, how do you plan to create a new video and make sure they are provided interactive components?
  • How do you cut costs, increase the speed and increase the quality of your videos?

Attend and preview demos and examples of interactive videos.
