NORMAN, Okla., July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NextThought, an online learning solutions provider specializing in collaborative and community-based education, announced today it has released The Learning Video Playbook for association and corporate education. It is being made available to at no charge.
The Learning Video Playbook is a collection of research, best practices, and video examples designed to help associations and companies create successful learning videos.
According to NextThought's Chief Learning Officer, Dr. Rob Reynolds, "Associations and corporations increasingly are turning to video as a core component of their learning solutions. We wanted to provide these organizations a useful guide, with examples, to help them create educational videos that will result in successful learner outcomes."
The playbook offers an overview of the learning science and design strategies behind effective educational videos, and also presents step-by-step video guides. In addition, the playbook contains valuable resources and tips for leveraging video as part of an organization's learning strategy.
"One of the common challenges to creating successful learning video," says Chris Kalinski, Director of NextThought Studios, "is that organizations focus all their attention on media production while ignoring learning design and cognitive science elements. But every educational video is a stand-alone learning environment that should incorporate specific, research-based design components based on the particular learning focus. In The Learning Video Playbook, we stress the importance of best practices and design elements, and we highlight them with detailed learning environment models and step-by-step examples."
