TEL AVIV, Israel, June 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- D-ID, a world leader in AI-driven creative media, today announced a new partnership with Skill Plus, a Japanese e-learning platform which plans and sells seminars and e-learning courses, to incorporate D-ID's digital human technology into their offering.
Post Covid, the demand for online communication has increased in many fields, not least of which includes education and e-learning. There are however still old-world offline issues that need to be overcome. For instance, it is time-consuming to shoot and record lectures, often with the need for multiple crews with specific expertise to be present when shooting such as camera, lighting, and wardrobe, as well as the need for the continued presence of the e-learning Instructor.
As Skill Plus's Representative Director, Yu Tsukada says, "To record a 30-minute e-learning course, we had to allocate at least 4 hours for travel, preparation, filming, and cleanup. In addition to the instructor, a filming crew, and a director had to be present. We wanted to eliminate these problems and were looking for ways to utilize realistic digital human instructors. With D-ID's Speaking Portrait, we can now easily create e-learning videos that are more engaging and personal."
Using D-ID's technology, Skill Plus developed Meta Speaker®, a system which generates digital humans from photographs and audio, drastically saving the time it takes to create educational videos.
"With Meta Speaker®, a single staff member can produce a digital human-learning instructor in about 30 minutes, significantly reducing the work-hours required," says Tsukada.
"When we were considering a tech partner for this project, we chose D-ID because they are simply the leading company in the world for creating educational videos at scale from still images."
An example of Skill Plus' Meta Speaker® in an e-learning environment can be seen here.
Skill Plus intends to produce more e-learning courses in the future using Meta Speaker®. Currently they have a service aimed specifically at owners of beauty salons, who face particular challenges keeping up to date with regulations and best practice. They plan to expand further into industries that require the use of digital human resources.
"We are convinced that this will be a new business opportunity for publishers and next-generation authors," says Tsukada.
