LS707 The Anatomy of a Video-based Simulation

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Thursday, March 17


Palm 5

Video has long since been a medium that evokes emotion and sells products through dynamic storytelling. In the past, however, it has been a passive medium. Fortunately, new knowledge and advancements make it possible to create more interactive video outputs.

In this session, you will learn how video can be leveraged in eLearning and mLearning simulations effectively to teach a skill or change a behavior. You will view examples of how video is used to demonstrate and simulate a task or behavior. You will learn tips and techniques that experts use when designing, producing, and developing video simulations for eLearning and mLearning courses. You will learn about practical tools you can use in the design and development of video-based simulations in your next training project.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How video simulations can teach a skill or change behavior
  • How to plan for video simulations in your training project
  • How to design video simulations efficiently
  • What tools can be used to produce video
  • What tools can be used to add video simulations into your eLearning or mLearning course

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
Storyboarding tools like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Branchtrack. Development tools like Captivate and Storyline.
