June 3rd, 2015 E-Learning

woman-with-finger-gogglesHave you ever taken an elearning course that didn’t include at least some form of video?

I know that I have, and it was pretty boring.

Not that I need video in order for a course to hold my attention. What was more problematic was that the course didn’t use a variety of media to split up the message delivery.

I suppose it’s safe to say that this wasn’t my favorite elearning experience.

That said, such courses are becoming a thing of the past as videos and animations are now more of a standard in elearning. Inserting videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, and other similar programs eliminates many of the technical headaches that were once associated with videos in learning.

Whether you have yet to incorporate videos into your online courses or you have been doing it for years, the articles below are worth a quick read. In them you will find tips for increasing effectiveness, security, and presentation.

Thank you for the kind words Ross!

Good write-up.

Would it be a good idea to suggest you to write about slidecasts and other kinds of media content?
