The power of video in e-learning

Video is the modern global medium for consuming educational and entertainment content. By 2019, technologists predict that 80% of all internet traffic will be video. Video-creating technology has also improved in terms of both quality and accessibility, making it easier and more affordable than ever to include video elements as part of a learning mix. But why bother to jump on the bandwagon? Using our experience at Walkgrove in making award-winning learning solutions, we’ve suggested four ways that video can work as a powerful learning tool either standalone or as a component of an e-learning, classroom, or blended learning solution.

In this white paper we consider:

  • The savings and other benefits which can be achieved by converting classroom content to online learning
  • Course duration, media, interactivity and practice opportunities when designing your course
  • Converting existing PowerPoint content to transform a role-play into an online game or simulation
  • When a blend works better—choosing the best of all worlds.

Systems e-learning doesn't have to be boring

When I was asked to write a course for ASOS, I thought – great – I’ve spent hours and hours trawling through their website for my outfits. They have everything from a “going to tea with the parents” outfit, to a “going out-out” dress. You need an outfit, they’ve got it. But when I found out the e-learning was going to be systems based, I was a bit gutted. Even as an Instructional Designer, I feel the dread of a systems course approaching like everyone else does. They’re hard to get excited about because they can be pretty boring… but not this one. I decided to make this one different.
