Training companies are signing up partnering agreements for exclusive regional and sector representation of newly launched online learning and development solution, Digital Training Videos.
May sees three relationship partners newly signed up to represent DTV.
Talbot Green-based Development Consultancy is to represent the company to public and private sector organisations in Wales.
The company operates from offices in South Wales and Bristol and is soon to open in the Middle East.
Hereford-based Learning Field is to represent DTV across all markets in its home county.
Milton Keynes-based SSW Performance Solutions will represent DTV exclusively within the automotive business performance development sector.
DTV’s web 2.0 technology-enabled streaming services was launched in April at London’s HRD show, with 20 newly filmed business skills video productions covering eight topic areas.
The ‘overview/introduce’ films serving to induct newcomers to a business practice are complemented by ‘take action’ productions designed to analyse and advise on detail specifics.
Film formats include expert interviews, case studies, and drama-based scene setting.
Users can view and select from an easily navigable topic library, spanning personal and professional development, management, leadership, coaching, communications, customer service, sales, teamwork and sustainability.
A lively content mix – modelled on cult TV shows such as ‘Pimp My Ride’, ‘Lost’ and ‘Sex In the City’ – advises on how to compose and write professional emails; becoming a better team member; handling a first day at work; best sales practice; and how to make the office more environmentally friendly.
Bite-sized videos come with downloadable support material and are available on licence packages or pay-per-view pricing.
New content uploaded every month includes a main feature title, usually relating to a current topic, with added location footage and specially packaged with a longer running time.
Response from training providers to the DTV initiative has been highly encouraging with another four companies signing in June, says the company.
“Unlike current video offerings, DTV combines quality, thought-leadership inspired content with optimum flexibility of delivery in a unique learner experience delivering value to partners and users,” says DTV managing director Sean Walsh.
“We are seeking to partner with the best people in the industry to take DTV to market.”
