Webcam Video in E-Learning

By:David Anderson

eleaarning“In a recent workshop on interactive video, some participants asked me what I thought of using webcam videos in corporate e-learning. While I haven’t done a lot with webcam video, I think it’s one of the easiest ways for designers to make existing courses more engaging.

Course introductions are a great place to start. Rather than narrate a slide of learning objectives and bullet points, try personalizing your intro with a webcam recording. Chapter and summary slides are also another way to integrate webcam videos into your courses. Once your storyboard is approved, you have the content you need to webcam one or more slides.

Though my workshop folks weren’t entirely sure video would work in their organizations, there sure was a lot of interest in it. And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!
