Increased attention through video interactions
Use videos to make learning fun and successful
Every good eLearning strategy benefits from videos. Moving images and sound attract attention, depict situations realistically, and are immersive. They also support learners with preferences for visual and auditory content. An ideal medium that’s indispensable for any web-based training. However, videos can often be very long and editing them complex. Additional information, such as links to more detailed content, additional facts, or graphics, can only be added using expensive software and additional effort.
Expand content and create focus
Efficient and effective
With Knowledgeworker Create, you can use videos to even better effect: Interactions maximize your learners’ attention at the right time. Introduce interactions at any points in your videos that deserve special attention. When viewed, the video stops at the appropriate point and a striking pop-up opens. You can customize this as you wish, using any of the design elements in Knowledgeworker Create. Add text, links, photos, and a variety of interactions. Get your learners to answer questions, or ask targeted follow-up questions to make sure they continue to pay attention to the video. Once the pop-up has been viewed, the video starts again automatically.
Use the full potential of your video content
Practical examples of video interactions
Any kind of video benefits from effective interactions. Attract attention and add further information. Integrate quizzes or comments to create unique and useful content for your learners. Improve learning outcomes and completion rates with little effort. For example, you can use the feature for the following:
Take learners step by step through the process displayed, providing additional information if necessary.
Add literature references, download links, or interesting facts at appropriate points in the recording.
Comment on documents or recordings without having to change the originals.
Point out details or specific situations in videos to learners and focus their attention.
Test the knowledge already imparted during the video and ask the learners what they think about the content.
For maximum impact, combine video interactions with video chapters. This makes your moving-image material the ideal learning content for your online course. The following practical example shows how it looks when you connect both features in Knowledgeworker Create.
The bottom line
Videos alone are already powerful media for successful eLearning. With video interactions, you can unlock the full potential of your moving-image content. Thanks to the versatile design options, there are no limits to your imagination. Create varied and entertaining content for a motivating learning experience.
