Video will become increasingly important as a method of imparting knowledge as our populace transitions from a linear written-word culture to a global and visual culture. Many instructional designers and developers would like to implement “how-to” videos in their programs but do not know how to go about it. Practitioners are unable to leverage the power of video instruction into their presentations and eLearning projects.

In this session you will explore the practical problems associated with incorporating video in eLearning. You will discuss utilizing both desktop and camcorder video regarding content, planning, size, format, streaming solutions, and accessibility from a learning management system. You will examine the challenges of transitioning from a linear- and text-based information structure to a mainly non-structured visual knowledge culture. You will leave this session equipped with the knowledge to record and produce appropriate videos for your eLearning projects.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The value of video learning in instructional design
  • From practical examples of video-based eLearning
  • How to leverage video in eLearning with common tools
  • The steps required to create a short video and import it into Storyline
