eLearning Narration Strategies
Increase Retention & Foster Behavior Change
The strategies of different e-learning programs have different end-goals. Academic courses orient toward increasing learner retention, while corporate training programs seek behavioral changes to internal and external facing audiences. A voiceover artist who understands and performs thier role with your specific project goals in mind, helps you achieve your KPIs and targets.
Pacing & Tone
Whether your online course is structured with long lectures or broken into micro learning, the pacing and tone of your voice over talent is integral to the success of the audio part of your multimedia presentation. You want seamless audio quality, consistent pacing and varied rhythm. The tone? Something pleasant on the ear.
Style & Role
The style and role of the narrator has changed in eLearning. Gone are the soporific, robotic professors and here to stay are the character narrators. The quirky hipster, the genuine friend, the engaged peer, the conversational manager. There is still call for the authoritative professional narrator, but even the delivery of this style has changed to a more authentic read. The key to great narration no matter the role taken on is high engagement. These choices bring new life to the genre. The focus? Totally one-to-one.
The key takeaway in high quality eLearning voice over narration? To give justice to a well thought out script, a good eLearning narrator must be either a subject matter expert who also has excellent, professional-grade storytelling capabilities or is an outstanding voice artist. Generally this means someone with both an acting background and experience with the educational process, who can present the material with the passion of a SME and keep the listener spellbound within the story of the script.
Genuine interest in the educational material at a high level is critical to robust learner engagement and program success.
Types of eLearning Training
Employee training is the most frequent type of eLearning organizations use an LMS for. Organizations utilize employee training for numerous reasons, such as onboarding new hires and improving employee performance. Training employees using an LMS formalizes training delivery and makes it more efficient.
Compared to traditional training, eLearning more effectively encourages professional development by promoting knowledge and an eLearning culture. Furthermore, your LMS should allow you to create exams, run reports and gather feedback so that you can continuously assess and improve training performance.
Compliance training is a necessity for most organizations. It informs your employees on the laws or regulations applicable to their role and industry. Compliance training is mandatory and tackles topics such as health, safety, and dignity in the workplace. Some examples of compliance training include:
Running a smooth compliance training program helps to minimize the risk of non-compliance and maintains your reputation. Your employees will also benefit from a safer, more productive workplace. Furthermore, keeping up-to-date with changing legislation and amending your training materials is made easier with eLearning via a reliable LMS.
The idea of training your customers may seem like an odd notion. But it has profound value! Customer training programs help your customers use and understand your product or service. This type of training is especially popular with software providers. As well as raising the customer experience, customer training benefits the organizations that run them too. You will experience better customer onboarding, increased engagement with your product or services, and improved customer retention.
Also known as reseller training, partner training gives your partners the tools they need to be successful members of your network.
