Plus... Tips for the Success of Your Video
By Greg Ball, President of BMI
Video used as a tool in a trainer led class can be extremely powerful when the video is produced and integrated properly. This method of instruction has many benefits to the trainer, company and student. I’d like to discuss these benefits and share some tips on what you should consider when deciding on creating video training elements. Here are some benefits and tips.
Trainers – are you bored with the repetition?
Teaching the same topic over and over can be brutal. It can be a struggle to sound fresh, enthusiastic and to give an effective, attention grabbing delivery when you’ve done it over and over... It can be a frustrating part of your job. By using video for portions of the class you can be set free to do what you do best:
- You can capture one enthusiastic and effective delivery on tape, and show that to your students. They will have the benefit of your best take.
- By integrating video with live training, you will still be able to teach and interact in a fresh way. You can deliver portions of the class such as the introduction, questions and answers, and facilitating workshops. You can deliver any portion of the class that is best presented live.
- You can keep your sanity and enjoy your job. It will come through to the students.
Standards and consistency can be achieved in delivery.
There are some topics that really need to be delivered and taught in a particular way. By videotaping, you can be sure that each student will receive the same information every time. No variations from trainer to trainer, no goofs.
Teach the topic anywhere! Save money on travel.
It can be very expensive to send your students to a different location. When you need to demonstrate something using a particular location, video allows you to take that message anywhere. You can capture everything you need to show at your locations. Then just send the video and the trainer to the student’s location, instead of sending all the students to another location. This can save you a great deal of money in travel expenses and lost work time from your employees. Placing the video on the web is a great way to reach everywhere! View our website video production page for details on web video options.
You can make sure everyone can see the demonstration.
Train larger groups. When a student needs to see something such as a computer screen display or a piece of equipment, live demonstration can limit the number of people you can effectively reach at one time. By videotaping the process, you can effectively display the information to a much larger group, and you can be certain that they will all see what they need to see!
These are just some of the benefits of integrating video into your training classes. Video can be a money saving investment that can increase workforce effectiveness, and just make life easier!
