Use short videos in your elearning courses to enrich the experience for your learners, and add interactive elements to keep them motivated and engaged.
- [Narrator] Video can play an important role…in e-learning courses.…But it's best when used in moderation.…While it's true that video is intended to be watched…and therefore it's not interactive.…When combined with thought-provoking questions,…or post video discussion,…it becomes a highly effective delivery method.…Videos tend to evoke emotion more than still images.…So you can establish rapport…with the learners from the start.…Use video to support the message either by…introducing something new…or supporting a concept that was already taught.…
Use video with questions and quizzes…and retention jumps even more.…Videos can be useful for students to watch and write…a short essay or paper on afterwards.…And always remember to include video production…in your budgeting and scheduling.…Some things to think about…when you're deciding to incorporate video.…If the information updates,…will the video need to be recorded?…Updates can be costly.…Do you have the budget to create a good quality video?…And who is your target audience?…
