So keep reading; it’s time to re-think the way we train our employees!

Make sure your employees are interested in the topic

e-Learning Videos are an integral part of any corporate environment’s employee development program. It can be hard to make sure that your employees remember the important information from these instructional videos. One way to ensure that your employees retain knowledge from them is to make sure they are interested in the topic. This is where a professional voice actor comes in handy – not only will they be able to keep your employees engaged, but also help portray content in a voice suitable for corporate narration. Consider hiring someone who sounds professional yet friendly — you don’t want a voice that’s too formal as it may lead to people tuning out quickly.

Keep training videos short and to the point

When it comes to training videos, people don’t need long explanations to understand and internalize the message. In fact, keeping those voiceover scripts short and to the point will help your employees retain the information more effectively. In that same vein, having a narrator who knows how to break up sentences and when to use pauses for emphasis can really make a difference in how your employees take in information.

Encourage employees to take notes during the video

For employees to get the most out of e-Learning modules, have them write down the key concepts or questions. Encouraging note-taking during these sessions is the perfect way for them to have something tangible they can refer back to in the future. To make sure this is possible, break up long scripts by spacing out the information and throwing in some visuals to help stimulate engagement and give them time to write key points. Of course, you need a professional to make sure everyone can hear correctly and take notes properly. A clear voice will make the difference between an “Oh, I see” and “Wait, what did she say?”

Follow up with a quiz or test after the video is over

Fostering a culture of learning is essential to success, which means training videos should be a priority in any workplace. To ensure your employees gain valuable information from every video, consider fortifying the experience with additional activities like reviews, tests and/or quizzes following playback. Creating a simple quiz or test after every module is an easy way to ensure that your employees understand the material presented. This will keep your team up to date on important topics and help them stay ahead of the curve! You could even make it more engaging by having the voice actor read the questions and answers.

Reward employees who get a good score on the quiz or test

Watching training videos can be a great way to have your employees learn and retain information quickly, but it’s important to follow up by testing their understanding. Although quizzes are not generally fun, they incentivize employees to pay attention and take notes. To cut off the edge a little, you can reward those who score well. Rewarding your employees with perks or prizes for getting top scores will give them all a little extra incentive to pay close attention and do their best!

Now that you understand how to ensure your employees will effectively retain information, keep these tips in mind so that the videos are actually effective. Make sure the topic is interesting and engaging, keep the e-Learning videos short and concise, and follow up with a quiz after watching.
