5 Articles on Using Video in ELearning

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.
