The organisation I work for has bravely agreed to move the training into the 21st Century.
Here is the topic
We develop and sell a piece of knowledge management software to the construction industry. This software comprises of a CRM, Document management system and some other modules specific to the construction industry. See www.unionsquaresoftware.com if you want more info.
Here is the vision
Our fundamentals (navigation, creating records, searching, etc) is currently covered by eLearning and we have had a lot of success with this. We also have been running webinar for the past year and a half with good success and uptake.
What I need help with
I am relatively new to the production of instructional videos - I must admit to having learnt a lot from delivering webinars, but I am sure there is a lot of things I can improve upon. I also have a lot of knowledge with regard to audio and have made sure we have a good setup to ensure good clear vocal quality.
Does any one have a "Tips and Tricks" list they would care to share with me. Or indeed any experiences they may have that I could learn from.
The company would like to extend the production of these videos to other staff who do not have any previous training experience and I will need to guide them to produce good videos - this is one of the key things I need help with as although I can 'do' I am not sure that I have enough time or ability to get a good set of key messages across to them.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
Happy to kick off the discussion .......
My tip would be to keep all the videos to short demonstrations of one key aspect of the system - here's the point - the shorter the intervention the less critical the issue of quality. It'll just be a short simulation after all, and what people are looking for at that point is a quick "show me and let me get on with it!"
Perhaps visit Onlignment, Practical Guides.
And Kineo eLearning tips (number 22)
Thanks for the replies -
Steve - I'd forgotten about Onlignment!
Alan - Great point about "show me and let me get on with it!" and quality.
Looking forward to getting this going, and I'll let you know the outcomes!
