P11 - BYOD: Creating Compelling eLearning Videos: From Tech to Technique
The video landscape is changing. Gone are the days when you needed to create slick training videos using a spokesperson, expensive equipment, and complicated software. Now, your audience wants videos that are genuine, relevant, and story-driven. The technology is easier to use than ever before and is often completely free! Your organization has a story to tell and knowledge to share that will inspire and educate your team, customers, and prospective customers. It is time to share that information in an engaging, effective way.
In this in this hand-on workshop you’ll learn about the different types of videos you can create, and generate your own list of video ideas. You’ll learn about two free software applications you can use for creating videos and how to leverage the Heart-Head-Hands script writing technique to make your videos more compelling. During the course of the day we’ll select two of your ideas and create short videos using stock footage and content captured from your mobile device. You’ll share your videos and script with others and get feedback, and then learn about equipment that you can use with your smartphone to increase the production quality of your videos.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why video is an important strategy for training and communication
- How other organizations are effectively using video in L&D and communication
- Video styles and themes to incorporate into your L&D and communication strategies
- How to use free video creation software to rapidly create professional looking videos
- How to write compelling video scripts using our Heart-Head-Hands scriptwriting framework
- What equipment can be used with your smartphone to increase the production quality of your video recording
- Where to access free resources for royalty free images, video footage, and music
