10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, June 8

Video technology is ubiquitous. However, many professionals become so preoccupied with whether they CAN produce a video that they often don’t stop to think about whether they SHOULD. Too often, this results in the development of ineffective content that doesn’t support user needs, wastes viewers’ time, and sets a poor precedent for the use of video within the organization.

This session will cover strategic ways of applying video to facilitate learning within a modern performance ecosystem. You will assess the connection between video consumption habits in the real world and the workplace. You’ll examine practical examples in which video supports learning in unique and meaningful ways. You will leave this session with new ideas of how to quickly and creatively use video to address your organization’s knowledge and skill needs.
