Virtual learning isn’t exactly new, but it has certainly taken center stage amid the coronavirus pandemic. With in person interaction no longer a responsible option, virtual learning has paved the way for educators and professionals alike. We are all re-examining the new normal and figuring out what works moving forward - the power of video is key to this.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of tech glitches, systems overloading and networks crashing, but the benefits of virtual learning can be immense and in today’s world, help keep us all a little safer. If you are equipped with the right tools and knowledge of how to use them, online learning and training is a breeze.
Training and explaining videos like the ones we produce are ideal for a virtual learning setting.
Being at home the entire day can make it challenging to define clear and established times for your day. This is different for everyone and having a training video you can refer back to at your leisure goes a long way.
WHY IS VIDEO IMPORTANT?
Video is important for virtual learning because it’s the next best thing from person to person interaction. Your audio and visual senses are both stimulated, unlike traditional textbook reading for example. People are far more inclined to pay attention to a video that offers graphics or photos to explain their message.We also want our information available at our fingertips at all times.

NEED AN EXAMPLE?

Check out this video we produced that walks them through how to use their online system, all from the comfort of their own home.
