6 Must-Use Video-Based Learning Strategies In 2019

While the usage of videos in eLearning is not a new concept, the wider adoption of mobile learning and microlearning has accelerated its use for learning. In this article, I outline 6 video-based learning strategies that you must adopt in 2019. This post was first published on eLearning Industry.

Interactive Video KC Question not continuing video

I’m creating an interactive video using a YouTube link. I created a simple overlay slide with information and a “continue” button. The next two I wanted to be knowledge checks. So I inserted two knowledge check slides with actions as “on success continue” and “last attempt continue”. I don’t need them to go to a bookmark. The first overlay works fine. The second one appears (KC) and when you get it right or wrong and click “anywhere to continue” it skips to the next KC and then the next slide, never showing the rest of the video. Any thoughts?

I am using Knowledge Check slides and NOT Quiz question slides.

Is there a solution or workaround?

Adobe captivate file extensions/output

Has anyone used adobe Captivate for the VR feature. Also I want to know how to output different file extensions with the software.

EX: If I wanted to output a Virtual reality project and have it housed on a web page (not a LMS), what steps would I need to take?

Interactive Video for effective Training:

In this tutorial, I am using existing Video(a small flat training video already created) and will add interaction to that video and there by making it more result oriented.

Before seeing interactive video, First, have a look at this static training video.


And now, have a look at the same video after adding integrative elements.


 You will realize that this one is no doubt, more effective and result oriented.

Steps to do it.

Step 1: Create a new project in Captivate.

Step 2: Add the training video that you would like to make Interactive.

Step 3: As a instructor(or developer), you will have some plan where to interact in the existing video to make it more effective. You can review your inserted video and decide following three points:

a)       Overlay Slide point: The points( in time line) where you would like to add interaction. That means, at what instant(in min, sec in video time-line.) 

 b.)  Interacting Slide(Normally Knowledge Check Slide): How you would like to interact. That is, whether by help Text slide or by Question slide etc.

c)       BookMark: If in case Viewer is not clear in concept, from which part of the video would you like user to re-view the Video.

Step 4:

Prepare Interactive slides (as per decision you might have made from Slide 3b.)

set that slide property as follow:

 For present scenario, I have covered “How to change Google Account password”. So I would like to interact after second step and would like ask a question there by confirming whether viewer(our student) understood that points or not.

  Step 5:

To make Viewer to jump to particular point of the video, we need to create, what we call a “BookMark”.


Step 6:

In the response to that interaction(knowledge check question in this scenario), Viewer either gives correct answer or wrong answer.

If he/she gives wrong answer, our program will repeat that portion of the video(by sending program to specific Bookmark) so that he understand properly. And if, he/she gives correct answer, our Video will continue with further steps involving.

Step 7:

We can repeat step 4 at as many points in video as per our need. For long video, naturally there would be many stops to interact with viewer.

Can you upload a video to YouTube with the TOC feature using Captivate?

We’d like to start creating our videos and include TOC. I see that this can definitely be done in Captivate, but what I can’t seem to find out is if once you’ve created a project using Captivate, can you upload the output file to YouTube and still have the TOC show and work?
