Successful video production explored at Learning Technologies 2014

Learning Technologies Conference 2014 (29-30 January) will see two invaluable sessions on optimal training video production.

"Google is the most used search engine in the world. YouTube is the second."

says Donald H Taylor, Learning Technologies Conference chair. Most of us know this to be the case. When stuck on how to do something, step by step instructions from Youtube videos on how to solve the problem, are more often becoming our solution.

With the costs, complexity & delivery of video all becoming easier, then it is not surprising that video is becoming a mainstay of e-learning development.

We would recommend attending one of the video sessions being held at Learning Technologies this year. The two sessions are being held by Mark Copeman of 8:45 TV and Barbara Thompson from BP International. Expect to learn how to design a video learning object prior to shooting, how to create the video on a low budget and how to create an effective video learning resource.
