Recording now Available: Adopting Video Learning – And Why It Matters – A webinar with Dr. Michael Moon

You may have missed the webinar, but the recording is now available.  

Webinar Description:

Learning from other people has long been recognized as an important way to familiarize newcomers to an organization but colleagues and peer groups are significant sources for learning in every phase of the employee lifecycle.  Video-enabled learning can help support learners, particularly when it is delivered via searchable, bite-sized chunks. This method is useful for learners who need access to just-in-time learning enabling the learner to apply the knowledge to the current challenge at hand.  But not every organization is ready to adopt the use of video content as a part of their learning repertoire. Despite 2014 research from Forrester Research which found that employees are 75 percent more likely to watch a video than to read documents, emails or web articles, not everyone is convinced.  Similar to mobile and social learning, HR and Learning leaders have concerns over the efficacy of video content, especially user-generated content.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What the many benefits of using video learning content are and hear about some of the many use cases for video learning
  • What some of the obstacles to the adoption of video learning are and how to overcome them
  • How to integrate video learning content as part of your overall learning strategy
  • How to harness the collective intelligence of your employees through user-generated video content to collaboratively create new forms of dynamic learning content where employees can learn both with and from each other.

Webinar: The Future of Learning is Video and Collaborative

Join our Webinar on April 13, 2016 at 2pm EDT:

The Future of Learning is Video and Collaborative

Your learners collaborate to get their work done.  They know who to ask when they have a question.  They use Google and YouTube extensively to quickly find that 90 second video to help them with common things. They are NOT searching the corporate LMS for a two hour course about your CRM system. They want answers immediately and chances are someone on the team already has one.

Informal learning has always been a part of our work environment:

  • It’s the water cooler.
  • The ride back from the job site.
  • The post mortem in the airport after that big pitch.

Learn how you can blend new approaches to learning with your traditional systems.  The advent of short form video has created a fantastic opportunity to leverage both video and collaborative approaches into the learning portfolio you deliver.

The Future of Learning is Video

 

“Predictive…Content…Mobile…Collaboration. These are the trending themes in leading edge business systems,” says Jim Lundy, CEO and lead Analyst at Aragon Research. “Many organizations are exploring video based content authoring and delivery. Some are investing in big data architectures to glean predictive workforce insights. They are also deploying various employee and customer collaboration systems for engagement and support. However most of these initiatives are disconnected from each other and such critical business systems as their learning infrastructure.”

During this webcast you’ll hear Jim Lundy of Aragon Research present the evolving social learning landscape and discuss how leading organizations are taking steps to embrace these trending themes.  Jim will discuss the evolution of video for recruiting, learning and knowledge capture.   He’ll highlight the benefits of embracing social learning and collaboration to transform the traditional LMS into a strategic asset used daily for both internal and external needs.  Finally Jim will describe how mobile is transforming learning by providing access to information anytime and anywhere.

Experts from Mzinga will highlight key examples of how the use of its flagship product, OmniSocial Learning, has enabled leading global organizations to reduce costs, increase productivity and user engagement, and deliver customer value by leveraging their untapped assets. As more and more organizations are searching for ways to maximize their learning investments, they are realizing that a key knowledge asset has been left untapped – their employees, alumni, and customers.

Please join us to hear why now is the time for your organization to embrace new trends in learning for your employee and customers alike.
