Mental health awareness

 

Public and political awareness of mental health has risen significantly in recent years, as has society’s understanding of the moral and financial imperatives to improve mental wellbeing. This trend is notable in workplaces because work has been identified as the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives. Employee mental health has come under increasing focus as more and more organisations take this issue seriously. Businesses recognise that employees who feel valued and supported to spend meaningful time at work are not only more likely to have higher wellbeing levels, but also tend to perform better in their roles.

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.
