My friend Jenise Cook over at Ridge View Media turned me on to this interview between Gabe Anderson on Articulate's Word of Mouth blog and Mark Dorosz of Knowledge Screen. The interview spotlighted Mark's use of video in eLearning.
I wanted to turn you on to it, as well, for its insight to the relative ease these days of incorporating video in our online training solutions. Now, I don't want to give the impression that "have camera will travel," and your video will seamlessly complement your instructional design. Nah, I think most instructional/video designers will say there's a little more to it. But, once said, I think most of us would also say that it isn't a skill that can't be honed (sorry for the double-negative, there) in a lot less time than it used to "back in the day."
When done right, video provides the missing link between the passion of a classroom instructor and the scalability of self-paced elearning. People sharing their ideas on camera is the norm...A polished video script combined with a well-rehearsed presenter can add a new level of personal engagement and credibility to elearning that we just can’t achieve with Flash animations.
You can read the transcript of the interview on Articulate's blog here. Meanwhile, I've included a sample of Mark's production below, showing his use of Articulate Presenter 2009 as the rapid eLearning development platform.
