Video-based learning to train remote workers

The rapid move to remote working due to the pandemic has posed new challenges for companies – providing employee training is one of them. Companies are being forced to adopt distance learning models to train their employees. With the introduction of the latest technologies and tools, video-based learning has become very effective for training employees. Plus, videos are an affordable solution for business learning and training. Companies are increasingly using video-based learning to train their remote workers. Video-based training offers many significant advantages if we employ the appropriate strategies.

This article describes 4 video-based learning strategies you can use to train your remote workers.

1. Use interactive videos to capture learners’ attention

As the name suggests, interactive videos give learners a chance to interact with the video content. Learners can tap, click, drag, scroll, move the mouse pointer, enter data or text, and take other digital actions to interact with the learning content in the video. This is similar to the way we interact with web content. You can incorporate multiple functions into one interactive video, such as: B. Hotspots, tabs, buttons, 360 degree panoramic views, input data fields, drag and drop options, etc.

Clickable buttons such as hotspots allow learners to go to a separate document, website, or more content directly in the video. Interactive quizzes provide each learner with personalized results and feedback at the end of the video. Interactive videos provide learners with more fun and engaging experiences and make the learning content more interesting, memorable and entertaining. In the current era of pandemic and remote work, you can effectively use interactive video to train your remote workers.

2. Use microlearning videos to provide just-in-time information

You can effectively use 2 to 3 minute long micro tutorial videos to provide bite-sized information to your learners. The main advantage of this format of video-based training is that it can teach or train the learner about a single concept, process, action, skill, or bit of knowledge. This user-friendly approach makes it easy to deliver easily digestible and actionable content to your employees.

Microlearning videos can help your employees learn when they need to. You can also use these videos to provide current and selective information on the latest happening in your industry and to keep you updated with the latest information. Because microlearning videos can be easily shared with your employees using an LMS, they make learning on the go easier. You can efficiently use microlearning videos to train your remote workers.

3. Use screencast videos and text-based videos

Screencast videos are digital video and audio recordings of what happens on a teacher’s computer screen. Screencast videos provide a detailed explanation of how to perform a specific task. Audio can include sound effects and music tracks to provide an engaging experience for learners. Screencast videos can include demonstrations, tutorials, and narrated presentations.

Screencast videos can be incorporated into many other learning activities. Screencast videos are a great way to train employees to learn new software or applications, orientate a new product, create product demos, demonstrate a step-by-step process, and explain how to analyze data.

Text-based videos offer a specific type of content for specific learners. If the training topic includes lists, processes, data, and graphics, kinetic text-based videos may be appropriate to train learners.

4. Create a video resource library as part of LMS

You can create a repository of training videos as part of your company’s LMS to provide a wider range of training resources to your employees. Learners can review a topic of their choice and access video training online at a convenient time. You can upload videos on a wide variety of topics covering topic concepts, knowledge areas, skills development, explanatory videos, presentations from industry experts, videos on your company’s strategies, and business plans to train your employees. Such a library will surely benefit your company to effectively implement video-based learning as part of your digital learning strategy in the long run.
