Elevate Student Education with These Explainer Video ELearning Projects
The digital environment that we’ve all become so accustomed to has certainly given way to a rise in E-Learning video production and the use of explainer videos for elearning purposes. In fact, explainer videos are one of the most popular types of videos across a wide variety of outlets, e-learning included. Explainer videos can elevate the education that you provide to your students while providing increased opportunity for engagement, enjoyment, and entertainment, too! To improve your explainer video elearning projects, resulting in elevated learning outcomes, consider these different types of explainer videos and specific project paths to suit your student’s needs.
Teaching and training students, whether in a classroom setting or outside this environment such as when training new employees or existing customers or clientele, can take on a variety of different formats. One of the most popular formats for today’s instructional scenarios is through video, rather than the passive instruction from the past that many of us are quite used to. If you’re looking for ways that you can elevate student education, explainer video elearning projects are an ideal opportunity that can take on many different forms.
Animated Training Videos
The incorporation of animation into training videos can make the content a lot easier to understand and digest, regardless of how complex or challenging it may be. In fact, explainer video elearning projects that incorporate various forms of animation into the training can be incredibly engaging and powerful. Animations are capable of helping visual learners to actively balance a lot of detailed information in an otherwise short period of time making these videos ideal for new customer or employee onboarding and various other teaching or training initiatives.
Engaging Explainer Style Training Videos
Explainer video elearning programs typically involve a narrative explanatory video in which the student audience will learn basic concepts followed by in-depth analogies, support, or similar admission of existing data. These types of videos are important to helping learners engage and understand complex topics that are otherwise quite challenging to fully grasp.
A short, explainer style video that teaches a very specific topic with pre-defined learning objectives, can be incredibly useful for students. This technique is valuable, provided there are no points in the video in which there is redundancy or unnecessary repetition of information.
Instructor-Led Training Videos
Training videos that require the support or guidance of an instructor can actually go a long way at elevating the education providing by the instructor. In fact, instructor-led training videos are incredible common and typically include very short, engaging modules in which the student will receive small, short bursts of information that they can then apply to a particular test, scenario, or situation. By providing education in this manner, students do not get bored with the information they are learning while instructors don’t have to actually be present physically for the training.
Instructor led training videos typically provide presentation style interactive options in which students engage with the video content for a short period of time followed by a period in which the instructor is present nearby in the room to provide further instruction, real-time discussion, question & answer sessions or various other forms of enrichment.
Interactive Explainer Style Training Videos
In order to elevate student education with the explainer video elearning projects that you create, consider interactive elements a vital source to the success of your project. Interactive explainer style training videos can incorporate a variety of techniques into the video training to keep learners actively engaging with the video training. Consider the following:
- Use quizzes to assess student understanding throughout or at the end of each video.
- Consider the use of scenario-based activities which allow students to choose the direction that their learning takes them in.
- Incorporate hotspots with hidden information or additional content details.
- Integrate question and answer elements throughout the video to highlight and reinforce important topics or areas of concern.
Many other opportunities exist to assist you with elevating your student education when it comes to creating interactive opportunities within your training videos and elearning projects. Consider the scenarios-based training and simulation style training in further detail.
Scenario-Based Training Videos
Scenarios-based training videos provide student audience members an opportunity to choose specific paths or scenarios based on their learning or on real-world objections. The outcomes can be positive or negative, depending on the choices that students made. This type of training is ideal for first responders, customer service training, and a variety of other scenarios where relatable situations can help employees or others to understand or to brainstorm real solutions to existing problems.
Simulation Style Training Videos
Similar to scenarios-based training videos, simulation style training videos are ideal for real-world situations in which a simulated cause/effect training scenario can help the student to better understand the training that is being provided. By simulating a real world problem, students can actively engage in brainstorming to come up with a solution or they can choose a solution from the simulated training exercise.
