Video-based learning has been incorporated into corporate training ever since its inception and has gone through positive progressions to today’s interactive video-based learning. With the gaining momentum of mobile and microlearning, interactive video-based learning is experiencing an exponential rise in the corporate setting.
According to Forrester Research, 75% of employees are more likely to watch videos rather than reading rows of documents. With interactive video-based learning, your employees will learn more in less time and have a better grasp of several work concepts, thereby increasing productivity and attention span.
Drawbacks on traditional video-based learning and how interactive videos can change the scenario
Even though videos have been established as an impactful learning method, there are certain drawbacks or limitations that an organization might face in traditional video-based learning.
- There is a paradoxical black hole area called forgetting curve where employees might lose interest after 45-60 seconds into a video of 2-minute or more in length.
- The videos have a limitation of being passive and not interactive enough to keep up with the on-demand training.
- It has been proven that videos provide high recall ability, but not high enough for cognitive level.
Despite the drawbacks in traditional video-based learning, it has transformed and laid the foundations of what today’s video-based learning in corporate training would be. With interactive video-based learning, your employees can understand the interaction of the video through junctions or pathways. These pathways lead to honing of the employee’s decision-making skills and have an impactful training.
Why employ interactive video-based learning in corporate training?
Corporate training needs videos to attract the attention of the employees and retain them until the video ends. Interactive videos can beguile and fixate the attention of the employees with the organization’s content is of paramount importance.
Makes learning accessible
We all have access to a smartphone, tablet, or PC at any time we require. It is a win-win situation for both L&D instructors and learners as the concepts can be done despite the geographical difficulties. Also, real-time learning enables us to see immediate and measurable results.
Microlearning is a short burst of information that allows learners to learn on the go. Video-based learning can make use of microlearning and bite-sized learning to continue on the efficiency of corporate training. Videos under 2 mins with inline checks and quizzes at the end of videos can increase the retention rate.
Standardizes training content
Does your organization contain a global workforce? Then approaching your employees with a comprehensive training program would be your best bet. Organizations require consistency and interactive videos using training materials from various points of contact. Every individual has specific needs, and these can be met with demonstrating procedures, theories, and decisions at every checkpoint.
Higher knowledge retention
It is tried and tested and also proven that humans tend to retain information from a video rather than text. Individuals have their checkpoints and tricks of retaining information and interactive video-based learning, allows learners to consume information at their own pace. As the learners attention spans are getting shorter by the passing minute, the videos must be short, concise, and of value.
Track the employees course with checkpoints and more
This is one of the pros that interactive video-based learning has over its counterpart. From the interactive videos, organizations can track the employees progress in the video-based course. By integrating features like click to reveal, hot spots, timed activity, branching videos, and much more, both organizations and learners can benefit from real-world scenarios.
Project-based video learning can improve employee productivity and engagement on the job. Novac Learning creates interactive video-based learning based on the content provided by the organization and prepares the required learning mechanism with a varied range of features set in place.
