Adobe Captivate – Final Quiz Question Remediation

In this video tutorial, I show you how you can set up remediation for your final quiz questions. Remediation in eLearning is when a learner has exhausted their attempts and is returned to the portion of the training where this knowledge or skill was originally taught. Once they’ve gained the knowledge they will have the opportunity to return to that spot in the quiz, make another attempt, and hopefully be successful.

„Blockaden im Kopf lösen“: Bottom-Up Digitalisierung @ Chinese University of Hong Kong

Jürgen Handke hat eine Woche an der Chinese University of Hong Kong verbracht und darüber ein Reisetagebuch beschrieben. Die Themen: (natürlich) Digitalisierung der Lehre, Flipped Classroom, Lehr-/ Lernvideos, OER, Lernapps. Seine Eindrücke: Begeisterung für das Thema Digitalisierung allerorten, große Motivation und die Bereitschaft zu teilen und zu kooperieren. Sein Fazit:

„So fliege ich mit gemischten Gefühlen heim. Auf der einen Seite die große Begeisterung für die Digitalisierung und das Vorhandensein aller Elemente und Strukturen in Hongkong; auf der anderen Seite die großen Probleme zu Hause. In Deutschland macht man genau das nicht, was anderswo und zumal in Hong Kong Standard ist: Man teilt häufig nicht, man kooperiert nur zögerlich, man redet von Strategien und Herausforderungen, man diskutiert Risiken und setzt den Fokus bei der Digitalisierung auf einen Top-Down-Prozess. (Und während ich diese Zeilen schreibe, wird Unsinn-Verbreitenden Ignoranten wie Manfred Spitzer im Deutschlandfunk auch noch eine Bühne gegeben). So wird das nichts mit der Digitalisierung der Lehre.“

A Taxonomy of Asynchronous Instructional Video Styles

Videos, so der Autor, sind schon lange das Medium der Wahl in Online-Kursen. Ob Videoportale wie YouTubeEdu, iTunesU und Ted Talks oder MOOC-Anbieter wie Coursera, EdX, Udacity, FutureLearn und Iversity – man setzt auf Videos, um Inhalte zu präsentieren. Um Lehrvideos herum gibt es zudem didaktische Konzepte wie den Flipped Classroom, und es gibt eine Reihe von Untersuchungen, die sich mit dem richtigen Einsatz von Videos beschäftigen. Was fehlt, ist eine Taxonomie der Instructional Video Styles.

Vor diesem Hintergrund schlägt der Autor ein zweidimensionales Klassifikationsschema vor, das erstens danach fragt, ob und wie Menschen den Stoff präsentieren, und zweitens, welches Medium für die Präsentation genutzt wurde (Tafel, Slides, etc.). Wenn man aber bedenkt, dass zum Beispiel Menschen auch durch Avatare ersetzt werden können, ist auch mit dieser Taxonomie noch nicht das letzte Wort gesprochen.

„We organized instructional video styles in two dimensions according to the level of human presence and to the type of instructional media. In addition to organizing existing instructional videos in a comprehensive way, the proposed taxonomy offers a design space, which should facilitate choice, as well as the preparation of novel video formats.“

How Can You Use Interactive Videos Effectively In eLearning

While usage of videos in eLearning and mobile learning courses is an established practice,  it is Interactive video, its updated avatar that is being proclaimed as the next big thing for online training. In this blog, I outline how can you use Interactive Videos effectively in eLearning.

Before I highlight how can you use Interactive Videos effectively in eLearning, let us look at the key differences between videos and interactive videos. We also look at the key benefits that an eLearning approach based on Interactive Videos provides.

Then I showcase how you can use Interactive Videos effectively in eLearning (both for formal and informal learning). This is not all, I also provide pointers on how you can further enhance the impact of Interactive Video-based learning.

What Differentiates An Interactive Video From A Classic Video?

Classic or traditional videos although very engaging and in widespread use, do not offer any control to the learner (beyond, start, stop and pause).

While this does not impact the expected gain from short videos, it becomes a serious shortcoming when:

  • The run lengths of the videos is long.
  • You need to checkpoint the learners assimilation.

This is exactly where the next avatar of videos for eLearning or Interactive Videos fit in. They are designed to provide learning interactions that are similar to the interactions in an eLearning courses.

With This Approach:

  • You can use the videos to be longer length (aligned to the learning outcomes) but have adequate interactions to engage the learner.
  • You can also checkpoint the learning assimilation through quizzes and assessments.
  • You can allow learner to progress through multiple paths (based on choices at crucial decision points) by providing branching options.
  • The output of this approach is SCORM compatible enabling you to track the learner’s progress.

What Are The Key Gains As You Opt For Interactive Videos?

The key advantages are:

  1. Studies confirm that an Interactive video has 10 times the impact of a traditional video.
  2. The moment you remove passive viewing (associated with traditional videos) and replace it with meaningful learning interactions and assessments, (associated with Interactive Videos) you will see a higher engagement quotient with your learners.
  3. You can validate if the learning mandate is met (expected take-aways as per the required cognition level). Wide ranging options of Formative assessments or Check Your Knowledge as well as Summative assessments enable you to achieve this.
  4. Appeals to all profiles of learners.
  5. You can multiply the impact of the learning experienceYou can enhance the impact of your training delivery by combining Interactive Videos with other techniques like Gamification and Microlearning.

How Can Interactive Videos Be Used For Various Corporate Training Needs?

Most organizations use the 702010 model of learning that factors for formal, informal and on the job training.

In line with this, the Interactive Videos can be used to offer:

  1. Formal trainingInteractive videos are a great fit for Compliance, Soft-skills and Professional skills trainingsThey are equally high impact approach for specific trainings like Sales training, Product training and supporting or driving Change Management programs.
  2. As Performance Support Tools or job aids to support formal trainingInteractive Video-based nuggets can be part of the leaning path that provides support to the learners post the formal training programThey can be used to reinforce primary training or be designed to practice certain concepts and enable for an effective application of the learning on the job.
  3. To support Instructor-Led TrainingWith increasing digitization of ILT sessions to a more blended approach, you can use the Interactive Video-based nuggets to provide practice sessions (role plays or complex decision-making simulations). They can also be used to offer real-life scenario-based assessments.

What More Can Be Achieved By Integrating Interactive Videos In Your Learning Strategy?

This is limited by your imaginationHere are a few ideas that you can use:

  1. Use them as Microlearning nuggets
  2. Offer them as a learning path
  3. Design them to offer formal training as well as for Performance Support (job aids)
  4. Integrate other interesting components like Gamification
  5. Offer Personalization options (from a repository of assets)

Summary

I hope this blog provides a good insight on the benefits of using Interactive Videos for eLearning. You can use them to enhance the impact of most of your corporate training needs. If you have any queries, do contact me at apandey@eidesign.net.
