Usage of video based learning has been used fairly extensively in eLearning. Video based learning continues to be in the top 3 preferred formats for learning.
What is interesting to note is the significant position it is gaining as an effective tool for both formal and informal learning. It is also being used to support Instructor Lead Training (ILT) or Virtual Instructor Lead Training (VILT).
In this blog, I show you 5 different approaches to integrate Video Based Learning for corporate training. These approaches will help you achieve higher learner engagement and see the desired performance gain.

Videos are universally acknowledged as an effective medium for training. The Video based learning predominantly uses the Scenario Based Learning (SBL). These range from simple scenarios to highly complex decision making, branching scenarios.
However, there are certain challenges associated with Video based learning:
Offsetting challenge 1: The first challenges can be easily offset through Interactive Videos that offer 10X impact over traditional Video based learning. Similar to degree of interaction that is possible in a typical eLearning or mLearning based course, you can have:
All of these measures help you create Video based training that is:
You can use also Interactive videos to support ILT/VILT training. This can be done in two ways:
Offsetting challenge 2: You can use Videos based learning beyond the classic format (where you had to shoot through a cast of characters) to other interesting formats that are particularly useful for informal learning.
Some of the key formats that you can use to easily leverage on Video based learning are:
