From how-to and tutorial, to policies and company information, training videos are an effective way to educate employees, and a valuable asset to have on-hand.
So, what exactly is a training video?
Training videos are designed to educate and inform. Companies often create training videos to instruct employees in corporate policies and expectations, or how to use software and systems. If you have ever sat through a terrible, outdated training video as part of on-the-job training, you might be a bit hesitant to subject your employees to training videos.
At Pixelfish, we remove unnecessary costs and simplify the production processes without sacrificing creative integrity. This means that no matter what your specific needs are, from the traditional “new product 101” to “how to” use a system or solution, we will gather together a team of bright, creative and experienced production minds to create a fresh, dynamic and effective training video for you, at an affordable rate.
How do you know if creating a training video is right for you?
If you spend significant company resources training team members through seminars or one-on-one training, a series of training videos can be a more effective and efficient way to educate your employees. With a video, employees can learn at their own pace, and even re-watch the videos if they didn’t quite understand the concept or steps to take.
How to make a fun training video
Whether you have a clear idea in mind or are starting from scratch, Pixelfish is ready to help you create a training video that achieves your company goals. When we work together, you can expect a hassle-free experience in a fun, relaxed environment. Training videos have a reputation for being boring, and while fun might be a bit of a stretch, there are ways to ensure your training videos are more than an invitation to take a little cat-nap!
1. Quick Cuts Keep audience attention by moving them through concepts by showing them at different angles and using quick cuts to add momentum.
2. Keep it Short Whittle down your script to focus on the most important concepts, without unnecessary information. Focus on the information and what your employee needs to know. If you have a lot of content, consider creating a series of short videos in a series on a particular topic.
3. Employee Participation When you include your employees – by acting out different scenarios, for instance – you may find employees in general to be more invested and pay more attention to the video when being instructed by a peer.
