EI Design-5 Killer Examples Of Interactive Videos For Corporate Training

The integration of technology in training has led to a paradigm shift, with interactive videos emerging as a robust tool for high-impact learning. This article explores how interactive videos revolutionize learning, showcasing five effective examples.

How Can You Utilize Interactive Videos in Corporate Training?

Aligning with the 70-20-10 model of learning, interactive videos play a crucial role in experiential and social learning paradigms. When we look at this model of learning, we find that the use of interactive videos maps to formal training and performance support tools, while also enhancing blended training delivery. Furthermore, you can boost the impact of classic videos by up to 10X through interactive videos. They effectively cater to the evolving needs of modern workforces by providing personalized, engaging learning experiences.

Interactive videos provide several advantages, including their ability to deliver high-impact learning, foster learner engagement, accommodate a range of cognition levels, and appeal to different learner profiles. Additionally, they enhance mobile learning solutions, offering cost-effective and high-quality training solutions. Offsetting the limitations of traditional video learning, interactive alternatives provide better engagement, validation, and tracking through AI-driven analytics. This fosters immersive experiences, thereby improving retention and application of knowledge.

When applied to corporate training needs, interactive videos prove imperative across a spectrum of areas including compliance training, soft skills development, leadership training, product training, sales training, behavioral change initiatives, change management programs, and more. Their adaptability and efficiency make them indispensable tools for modern training initiatives.

The Value-Adds of Interactive Video Based Learning

Interactive video learning proves to be far superior to its counterparts. Firstly, it enables the delivery of short, bite-sized learning nuggets, allowing learners to consume content on the go, across various devices. With interactive video based learning, you need to be concerned about the run length of the video. You can focus on the learning outcome and use the rich range of learning interactions to meet the learning mandate.

You can offer branching options (at certain decision points, learners make choices that take them through unique pathways). This approach creates a highly sticky learning experience plus it enables you to move the cognition level to application (from recall or understand). Similar to other learning courses, you can track the learners’ progress as the interactive videos support both SCORM and Tin Can.

Interactive elements within videos foster active learning and skill application, with intermittent checkpoints and assessments reinforcing objectives. AI-driven recommendations also help personalize learning by suggesting customized paths based on learner performance, while AI-driven characters and voiceovers enhance engagement. Investments in adaptability and accessibility through interactive video based learning produce long-term ROI. This enables tailored training via customizable frameworks for enhanced effectiveness in corporate training, leading to improved workforce proficiency and performance.
