Using video in e learning

  1. 1. Video in eLearning can be great* *and by great we mean expensive** **especially if it’s boringMatt SullivaneLearning and Tech Comm@mattrsullivanmatt@mattrsullivan.com
  2. 2. eLearning• Definition for my demonstration: – Recorded content – or content delivered live via online connection• Includes: – PDF, PPT & YouTube, LMS Content – Webinars & Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)
  3. 3. Treat tools as tools• Learn tools, but study speakers• Instead, follow inspiring speakers – Nancy Duarte – Steve Jobs – Martin Luther King
  4. 4. Above all, tell stories,engage your audience
  6. 6. Webinars/Live Training• Audience Poll: – Webinar Hosts – Online training sessions – Successful? – Stressful? – What were the main trouble spots?
  7. 7. Online trainer perks• It’s cool to train in fuzzy slippers/Ugg boots• No bad hair days• Great office fridge• The Daily Show + DVR = 20 minutes• Exercise before work easy without commute – Tougher to duck getting kids ready for school
  8. 8. Common downsides• Students do not read hardware and software requirements prior to class• Ensure – Appropriate hardware – Appropriate software – Use 2 screens
  9. 9. Overhead costs are near zerocompared to brick and mortar• Adobe Connect: $45/month• Overheard at the Sullivan household— “But sweetheart, that $1,000 monitor will make webinars so much easier…and it’s tax- deductible”Nearly $0.00
  10. 10. Example of webinar recording• Cue 8:30 and 11:00 in webinar recording “Publishing to Amazon and iOS”
  11. 11. Online is still a tough sell for manyregional clients• Let’s be real: eye contact is a good thing• They think VILT is 3-6 hours of boring lecture – (Sometimes they’re right)• Ways to increase interaction – Camera – Screen sharing – Polls – Troubleshooting InterAct
  12. 12. Nobody fills out evaluations afteronline training is over• Best way to get an inaccurate evaluation: Force students to fill out eval after conclusion of presentation• Fill out eval’s prior to start of last lecture period
  13. 13. Definition of an Expert• One who has done every possible thing wrong• And (hopefully) has learned from those mistakes
  14. 14. Things I’ve done wrong in VILT• Rely on a wireless internet connection• Rely on a hotel internet connection• Rely on a hotel wireless internet connection• Speak monontonously (for more than a few minutes)• Let students hide from you• Refrain from engagement
  15. 15. Concept-based training:POWERPOINT& ADOBE PRESENTER
  16. 16. Adobe Presenter Defined• Adobe Presenter publishes PPT as a recorded, interactive module suited for eLearning/LMS
  17. 17. PowerPoint & Presenter are only tools• Find inspiring examples of presenters and PowerPoint content – Mark Fidleman • – Jesse Desjardins • steal-this-presentation-5038209
  18. 18. Use the right tool for the job• PPT/Presenter = Concepts• Captivate = Software skills• Overlap – Quizzing with scoring, random pools – Publishing – SCORM
  19. 19. Use continuity• Understand Animation Pane (don’t go crazy)• Use video and/or .swf where appropriate• Record audio to enhance and/or narrate
  20. 20. Presenter & Captivate in combination Find your cut line Software Concepts Documentation + S/W Documentation+ Concepts Presenter w/placed CPT Captivate with PPT
  21. 21. Understand publishing options• Subtle differences between packages – Assign personas to Presenter skin/player – Captivate is faster at creating many quiz questions at once
  23. 23. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? • Storyboard • Script • Practice, Practice, Practice • Record • Edit (lather, rinse, repeat) • Record audio, edit audio • Publish
  24. 24. Recording only 2% oftotal time spent on project• So record with PURPOSE – Understand your script – Make precise clicks – Avoid mistakes
  25. 25. Best Practices• It’s easier to delete than to create – When in doubt, capture it! • Text captions • Transition slides• One thing at a time – Recording in audio in real time is tough – Use computer gen audio to work out scripts
  26. 26. Understand Defaults and Pref’s• Eliminate – Repetitive formatting – Cumbersome content• Rely on previous assets/styles
  27. 27. Recap• Regardless of method – Tell a good story, be accessible – Make your audience the hero – Define “What is” – Show “What could be”
