Technology-based training often suffers from the "Terrible Too's of Training." The training itself violates the fundamental rules of adult learning, and consequently doesn't drive business results back on the job. As a result, trainers need to address two major issues—creating compelling content and post-training follow-up.
Today, revolutionary new video technologies are enabling organizations to effectively train and coach at-a-distance using high-impact, low-cost, TV-style video solutions:
• Compelling video-based e-learning can now be created by anyone using a low-cost depth-sensing camera adapted from the video game industry and an inexpensive cloud-based service. And this video can be produced anywhere, from an ordinary office to a hotel room to a home.
• Boring disembodied-voice webcasts can now be personalized by integrating the presenter with the content—in real time and presented from any location.
• Instead of depending on overburdened supervisors to coach learners after training, video solution now exist that manage a comprehensive coaching-at-a-distance process from a central location.
The result is a revolutionary reduction in the cost to create high-end, high-impact video e-learning, and an answer to the problem of supervisors not coaching and reinforcing training content.
