Instructional videos offer several benefits for training and education. Whether you are trying to cut costs, save resources, support remote learners, accommodate conflicting schedules, or just looking for more ways to boost learner engagement in more fun, visual ways, videos can help your organization achieve all of this—and more. However, with so many moving parts, video production can feel overwhelming or even daunting for some. Because it’s best to stay organized and plan ahead when venturing into the world of instructional videos, it’s worth following an intentional workflow.
In the new 8 Step Checklist for Producing Engaging Instructional Videos, Jonathan Halls shares an eight-step workflow for making creative and engaging training videos. Each step includes tips for getting the most out of the overall process. Here is a quick look at a few of the key takeaways outlined in the checklist:
- Define your learning objective and break it into different chunks. Keep these chunks in mind when brainstorming your content.
- People remember what they see more than what they hear. Make sure video is the right modality for the content you’re trying to communicate.
- Think about safety, the environment, and the people you are working with. Create a risk assessment and identify how you can minimize roadblocks.
The checklist is truly a great resource for both those who are new to instructional video production and looking to get started, or for established video creators who are looking to refresh their skills and pick up new strategies.
