SMNX105 Improve Your Videos with a Simplified Review Process
2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Wednesday, October 24
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
One of the keys to making effective training videos is to gather feedback from stakeholders and colleagues along the way. However, the headaches associated with this process can frustrate and deter even the best content developers. The process can take longer than desired, feedback can be provided on the wrong areas, and often feedback comes at the last minute, causing a major rework way too late.
In this session, you will learn the main themes discovered in interviews with over 100 chief learning officers and instructional designers addressing feedback cycles for video content. Attendees will be provided a series of best practices that can help reduce the frustration involved with this process. Additionally, attendees will see a live demo of TechSmith Video Review, a new tool designed specifically for designers and developers creating videos. With this tool, reviewers can leave time-anchored comments and mark up the video using drawing tools as they watch. Making it simpler for reviewers leads to faster turnaround times and quick project completions.
In this session, you will learn:
- The importance of proper feedback loops in the video development process
- How to get feedback on video content being developed that is actionable and useful
- The insights shared by numerous training executives and practitioners related to reviewing video content
- How to utilize new tools to simplify and streamline feedback loops during video creation
- How to consolidate and manage feedback on videos in a single secure location
Novice to advanced designers, developers, and managers.
Technology discussed in this session:
Videos, mobile, TechSmith Camtasia, TechSmith Snagit, and TechSmith Video Review.
