Training and eLearning videos are known to heighten motivation of people to learn and to stimulate brainstorming. They appeal to various different learning needs and can be adapted for virtually any audience.

Training and eLearning videos have commonly been used in schools and colleges, but they have become increasingly popular in the business environment in recent years. Not that long ago you’d have been forgiven for believing that using videos to train your employees was simple a fad. But now that many of the world’s largest, most successful companies have embraced the idea, it’s clear that this is the way business is done in our new engaged, information-rich workplace.

IBM is just one company that has reaped the rewards of eLearning training. Having done some research that revealed traditional training events that required travel and accommodation attracted an additional bill of more than 40 percent of the total event cost, they decided to do things differently. After shifting half of the company’s training to eLearning, IBM reported a $579 million in savings in only two years!

It might seem amazing, but it isn’t rocket science to pinpoint just why training and eLearning videos have become so important.

  • Videos are much more effective than books when it comes to keeping learners engaged.
  • Videos capture attention quickly and effectively.
  • Videos are great for demonstrations and provide a user-friendly platform for explaining complex concepts.
  • Videos can be used very successfully to reinforce what learners have been taught through other methods – verbal and written.
  • Those who learn via videos seem to able to store information more easily and more effectively.
  • Videos are fantastic for triggering discussion and dialogue.
  • In the business context, simulations of processes and manufacturing have great potential via videos.

Generally training and eLearning videos are short and interactive. We find it is better to have a series of eLearning videos than just a single training tool. Length does though depend on both the age and expertise of those who will be using the video for training.
