Interactive training is all about putting your training into practice – before the job actually starts!
A training video is to make your audience competent in applying your learning objectives in their daily work.
Interactive training videos are not just about telling the audience what to do, but showing them what to do – and then testing their understanding.
It involve your audience more deeply.
It make your training video memorable, and motivates your audience to put your training methods into practice.
And it edu-tains!
Show your audience a video clip, then follow it with a multiple choice question – as part of the video – in order to validate the training.
Tell me, and I will forget.
Show me, and I may remember.
Involve me, and I will understand. (Confucius, BC 450)
With an interactive training video you can confirm everything has been understood – at the very moment the learning is given!
Here are some of the ways you could use interactive video training:
> Training new recruits
> As part of your contractor induction
> The retraining of existing staff in new technology, policies or operating methods
> End-user training, showing your customers how to get the most out of your product or service
> Health & Safety training or hazard awareness
As part of an interactive video training package you can use interviews of people who have already received the interactive training, and hear their (helpful!) comments.
Peer group influence in this way can explain how important the new training is, and how it has positively affected their work practices.
