Lauren Fain, Training Specialist, Amica Insurance

Biteable is a quick and easy way for individuals to make a pro-quality informational video. Biteable has hundreds of animated, live-action or photo scenes in many different styles, or users have the option to use a pre-made video template created by one of their designers. The software allows users to add their own content, photos, colors and sounds to customize videos and edit it all on the simple drag-and-drop timeline. Again, Biteable is a great way for businesses to advertise, make presentations, invitations or introductions of new products and/or services.

Creating Video-based Micro-lessons with PowerPoint

Before you go spending big bucks on fancy eLearning tools just to get a magical Publish button, you really need to take a good look at PowerPoint. Yes, *PowerPoint.* The tool that used to put you to sleep faster than NyQuil is now a tool that can caffeinate even the most boring training lesson. Just wait to see what it can do with video....

Let’s Market Training with a Combination
Cleon McClure, e-Learning Specialist, BD Interventional Surgery

I was tired of the dull/boring openings to modules/ courses.  I looked to “marketing “ solutions to connect users emotional and to my themes or brands for the learning.  You’ll see Viddyoze, VideoMakerFX, Articulate REPLAY 360, and FlipSnack come together, grabbing your users attention to learn more…

Creating videos with the templates provided in Viddyoze and VideoMakerFX is easy, good flexibility to added images, colors, etc.   You’ll see how combining shorter videos together in Articulate REPLAY 360, then adding a touch of super-charged music works wonders to increase users’ interest…

An eBook… really?  Seems so yesterday’s technology.. FlipSnack provides that mobile reference that my users love to visit after completing the modules… PDF upload, added videos and other interactions.. a good “spacing tool” to share focused training..
