1009 Video Critique: Best of the Best
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Thursday, June 22
Learning videos can range from astoundingly effective to painfully bad. And while most people can at least create content that avoids the latter category, it’s not always easy to know what makes the difference between video content that truly resonates with your audience and content that is fine but forgettable. Thankfully, one of the best solutions is to take a closer look at examples that work well.
In this session, you’ll get inspiration for making your video content even better by taking a critical look at some of the most effective videos used for learning. You’ll look at a wide range of approaches to using this medium for teaching content and engage in in-depth discussions about what made each approach successful. Through exploring this curated selection of video examples, you’ll find out more about what makes video content memorable and get new ideas for techniques you can use in your own work.
In this session, you will learn:
- About different approaches for using this medium to share content
- What successful learning videos tend to have in common
