Make learning accessible with video e-learning

Video content offers a whole host of benefits to a teaching environment. One of the main benefits of video e-learning is that it makes learning accessible to all. For example, the vast majority of us are visual learners and respond far more effectively to video than a wall of text when it comes to absorbing information.

This is because the human brain efficiently processes and optimises memory recall when exposed to video content, making it a great learning tool.

Visual and video e-learning also offer numerous other benefits, including improved comprehension and the ability to trigger learners’ emotions in a bid to retain important information.

This style of learning is a great solution for those working in trade industries, particularly who don’t enjoy reading and respond better to visual learning tools than overwhelming blocks of text.

But why is video learning so effective?

A significant amount of research has been carried out in this area. According to the Visual Teaching Alliance, there are the many reasons why the vast majority of us are visual learners.

For example, did you know that the human brain can see images that last for just 13 milliseconds? And our eyes can register 36,000 visual messages per hour? 90% of all information that is transmitted to the brain is visual and visuals are processed 60,000x faster in the brain than text.

Improving comprehension for all learning abilities

Many people struggle to read and retain information presented to them in large text formats, whether it’s due to a diagnosed condition or simply that reading isn’t one of their strengths. It’s a common issue and nothing that learners should be ashamed of. Companies should be looking for ways to ensure that learning is accessible to everyone.

There’s an increasing amount of evidence indicating that visuals can improve learning by up to an astounding 400%. Stimulating a learner’s imagination and allowing them to process information far quicker, visual language is universally far more effective than text.

Video is also a great way for accommodating all learners’ needs, with 40% of learners responding much better to visuals than text.

E-learning video resources are a great way to keep learners engaged and motivated to fulfil their learning goals and, of course, capturing your learners’ attention should always be a top priority.
