Training Videos: Lights, Camera, Action... Let’s Review! +eLearning Industry 

Recently I was given the task of revising one of our older training programs. It was your generic, synchronous eLearning program talking about professionalism in the workplace; not a lot of interactivity or graphics in it, but it got the job done. In addition to adding colorful backgrounds and activities to the program, I decided to add a video to the end of the program that would allow the employees to review everything they had just learned in a fun, visual format. What follows is an example of how training videos help with reviewing training material and enhance the corporate learning experience.
