Orientation programs for remote employees

Do you know of any best practices in design of new hire orientation programs for remote employees? A colleague is proposing a series of 1 to 2 hour self-paced videos - which sounds like torture to me. I'd love to come in with some more creative ideas and haven't found any gems online yet. Thanks!

We are a producer of e-Learning content. Write back to so I can share some good examples.

Typically in a self-paced learning environment, the span of attention of a learner is very short. My experience - mono-media content will fail to attract users. Thus design a multimedia course which has reading, interactivity, exercises, decisions, graphics, narration, assessment all through. Keep 1 medium of delivery for no more than 30 seconds as it gets boring later on. Keep changing mediums and combinations to keep learners engaged and make learning fun.

Not sure if you are looking for a "regular" orientation or a "safety" orientation but here is a good version for safety.

Sorry I couldn't get the "youtube" button to work but that is the URL for the video! Hope that helps!
