Since the first filmstrip projector made its way into the first classroom, stand-up trainers have been incorporating video into formal instruction. Used well, it can offer points for discussion and nudge thinking about what and why. It often made for good conversation and could reach the affective domain when other approaches did not. But when we moved to eLearning we left a lot of that behind: The video clips were uploaded, but the rest of that experience—the talking and processing—didn’t make the transition. With so many new avenues for delivering video online it’s a shame that we’re not doing a better job of capturing the things a good instructor in a good face-to-face setting can bring.

This session looks at ways of correcting that by extending the video experience to make it more social.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to use video as a springboard for conversation substituting for traditional face-to-face training activities
  • How to use video to encourage reflection
  • How to use video to situate learning in context
  • How to use video to leverage peripheral capabilities
  • How to use video to research and share new ideas

Designers and developers of all levels.
