Well-designed, interactive video increases attention, engagement and satisfaction. It can also induce a heightened state of 'flow' within the audience; an impression of discovery and creation, with a documented relationship to high performance and motivation. Brightwave's Head of Learning Design, Caroline Freeman explores how this state of flow can create intrinsic motivation within learners and deliver greater impact than conventional online learning. With practical insight of experiences from both game development processes and storytelling modes unique to interactive narratives, Caroline demonstrates the situations in which interactive videos are the best solution to a learning need and why. Key learning points include:
