Today, when it comes to corporate training, agility is the name of the game. And companies of all sizes have made strategic investments in tools meant to improve learning and development, including learning management systems (LMSs), video content management systems, training content development tools, and other online learning systems.
And along with those, many Learning and Development leaders have another secret weapon in their arsenals when it comes to improving employee training — video software that makes it easy to produce and share quick bursts of knowledge, commonly referred to as microlearning.
Microlearning video content is perfectly suited for agile training and development for a number of reasons, including:
If you have yet to experiment with microlearning strategies, you can get started by following these 6 best practices for creating microlearning content.
Creating microlearning content is only half the battle when it comes to improving employee training and development within your organization — making training content discoverable is equally as important.
Even short microlearning videos, with all their advantages, can be difficult to store, share, and search without the right tools. Fortunately, leading end-to-end video platforms are designed to make sharing knowledge and discovering content in videos as easy as creating the videos themselves.
Employees need the ability to rapidly find and access knowledge when and where they need it. A video content management system (video CMS) lets you create and curate a library of video knowledge that will be shareable, searchable, and viewable even on mobile devices — all of which is essential to making microlearning work.
For example, with Panopto, you can create a corporate YouTube for all of your video content in which employees can search not only the video metadata, but also the content within the video. And video playback is optimized for the device the employee is using, whether it’s a large computer screen or a mobile phone.
