Surprise! Mobile is a Moving Target

Published by   John Parsons on Mar 24, 2015 9:57:18 AM

On March 25, Viddler will release the latest version of its HTML5 interactive video player. A brief video of the player improvements is available here.

During the course of developing and testing the new player, two things became clearer:

  1. Responsive design means a lot more than elements resizing and moving on different size screens
  2. Tools like buttons and overlays have to accommodate not only the user’s habits (and their finger sizes!) but also their behavior while using a particular device

It doesn’t take long for a busy person’s schedule to fill up. Responsibilities at home and work deter employees from completing additional training outside of their normal duties.

3 ways to make e-learning videos more engaging

Published by   Payton Sherry on Dec 30, 2014 2:50:00 PM

Participation makes a difference

There’s a reason we use video within our e-learning programs: it’s more engaging. However, while watching video is more powerful than text, it isn’t enough. 

It takes many types of learning techniques to increase retained information and engagement. People need verbal, visual, and action learning techniques combined in order really learn. Interactive video offers a solution by including all elements of learning. Viewers are fully engaged when they can hear what they need to learn, they can see it, and they can then act upon or do something with it.
