No two learners are the same and one way to cater to this is to create and offer training courses which allow for learners to take their time. Video e-learning and courses which incorporate video are particularly effective with many different learner types. Video has significant benefits over other methods and here are just some of the key reasons that video is the best possible e-learning tool.
1. Visual Learning Works
Research has time and again proven that images are more engaging than just text alone. Visual images are much easier to recall than text too so if learners need to go back to their training in their everyday work, it is much easier if they have an image or video to draw on.
2. Video allows for Storytelling
Everyone has sat through slide after slide of unengaging PowerPoint presentations. The information is there, the bulleted lists offer up all you need to know. However, the ability to retain this kind of information is difficult. The brain simply doesn’t react well to this style of information. It wants to be told a story and video is fantastic for storytelling. Storytelling makes learning accessible and it is easy through quality video.
3. Video is Always Accessible
With a fully recorded and accessible video e-learning course, you don’t need to be there when your learners are doing their training. Live training courses can be great but you can’t stop, pause or repeat them. Similarly, you can’t just watch again if you’re not sure of something. This is where video really comes out on top, it’s always accessible and easy to stop and start.
4. Video provides Consistency
However good a training company may be, they are only as good as their trainers. Some will inevitably be better than others. Consistency is much harder to achieve in person-to-person training than it is in video. Video means everyone can be trained using the same materials and content and the quality of the content never changes.
Online video training is one of the most effective and consistent ways of providing course materials to companies in many areas.

VideoTile e-learning courses are bespoke products for each of our clients. E-learning is a huge effectively tool for modern business and below we’re looking at three key ways our e-learning courses can help your business.
1. Better Quality Training
All businesses invest in training to help improve their workforce, ensure they are compliant and to get the most out of them. Many businesses invest significantly in in-house training, workshops and away days, which can become very expensive and doesn’t always do the job. The experience of a whole day spent training can be beneficial but it doesn’t take into account the individual learner styles and where each of your employees may be in their learning. E-learning does. Our e-learning courses allow your employees to take the courses at their own pace and work through until they feel the information is fully digested.
2. An Effective Engaged Workforce
Once you give employees the power to manage their own learning, most will be proactive. They will also be enthused to make the most of their new skills. Motivation increases and you can always check who is up to what in the training programme and discuss any issues or concerns with individual employees. E-learning provides business owners and management with huge amounts of data about their employees. It is possible to recognise who has the ambition to move forward and add value to the company.
3. Capital Saving
As mentioned, many businesses spend a lot of money on regular away days and training seminars. While we’re not suggesting e-learning is a cheaper option, it does offer better value. You will be making a significant investment into your training through an e-learning provider and distribution company. Even better, once it’s done, it’s yours. Updates and refreshers may be necessary but essential the content is yours to use to train as many people as you need. This is without the requirement to organise training day after training day.
