Video has traditionally been difficult, time-consuming, and expensive, but it doesn’t need to be. Today, eLearning professionals can produce live-action and animated videos easily, quickly, and on a budget. But which do you choose, live-action or animated? It can be challenging to determine which option will best tell your story and engage your learners while also making the most sense given your budget and time constraints.

In this session, you will learn how to determine the best choice between live action and animated video for your learning projects. You’ll explore when and where it’s best to use live-action video. You’ll discuss the pros and cons of animated videos. You will also explore how to shoot live video, how to create an animation, and how to incorporate both together for best results.
