February: Making an Impact Using Animated Videos

The more educated the team, the healthier the bottom line. The challenge lies in keeping teams informed and wanting to learn more about their roles in the industry. With dry content centered on policies and procedures, how do you create eLearning that engages a learner? By using relatable and fun animated videos! In this session, Karen Kostrinsky will show you how she turned a learning challenge into an eLearning design template for use internally and externally. You will learn how she worked with internal and external subject matter experts to create engaging storyboards and scripts that focus on critical factors affecting the mortgage industry.

At the end of this session, you will be able to

  • Understand the importance of storytelling in developing eLearning
  • Capture the importance of using good audio techniques
  • Use GoAnimate to create fun and engaging eLearning videos, even with dry boring content
