Starting a new job can be intimidating when you don’t know is expected of you. Often, even the most competent person struggles when they aren’t given the proper training or direction. So if you want a strong internal team, you need an effective training method.
What is a training video?
A training video is a dedicated video educating viewers on a specific topic with the goal of teaching a skill, information or knowledge.
Why should you produce training videos?
The benefits of producing training videos are many but we will focus on some of the key ones that our clients at Kiwi Productions have personally benefited from. By now, most of us know that video engages better. Would you rather watch a 5 minute video or read a 150 page manual? When you factor in the time and cost factor, videos triumph as they are less time consuming and more cost effective in the long run.
Videos are more digestible as they commonly focus on the key points of a topic which helps increase retention rate. With the ease of access, training videos are readily available for everyone especially your new employees and can be shared with one click of a button. If done right, your training video can be a powerful tool for your company.
How to make training videos?
A well produced training video consists of proper pre-production. Scripting, storyboarding, selecting the right talent, creating a realistic timeline, creative briefing and budgets are some key elements of pre-production. Filming in a professional space, incorporating captivating graphics, multilingual subtitles, voice over, background music, living within your presentation, clear crisp video and audio can result in a dynamic end product!
