Learning content specialist Video Arts will be showcasing its Digital Content Library and its latest e-learning titles on stand 712 at HRD 2009 (ExCeL, London).
Video Arts has dissected its most popular DVD programmes to create a Digital Content Library of over 1,000 bite-sized ‘learning chapters’, each of which lasts two to three minutes and covers a specific learning point. These chapters can be accessed online, via an organisation’s intranet or offline via a video hard drive.
At HRD 2009, Colm Gibson, Learning Resources Architect at Video Arts, will be presenting a free topic taster seminar outlining how these video clips can be used to enliven in-house e-learning, blended learning or classroom-based training programmes. Entitled You Call the Shots: creating your own unique learning with world class digital video, the session will run 10.00-10.30am on Tuesday 21 April.
Video Arts has also created a new ‘pay as you go’ service which allows independent consultants and training companies to use its digital video clips in their client training. Like a prepaid mobile phone service, credits can be purchased in advance and used to access any content as and when needed.
Video Arts will also be showcasing its 57 e-learning courses, which cover subjects such as people management, communication, customer service, interviewing, selling skills and diversity. Each 90-minute course combines memorable video content with interactive tutorials and exercises. Available online or on CD-ROM, the modular courses are fully SCORM-compliant for learning management systems. They include pre and post course assessments, enabling organisations to benchmark their improvement rates.
“Our Digital Content Library and streaming options make it easier and more cost effective for organisations to use our video clips in their training,” said Martin Addison, Managing Director of Video Arts. “We’ve extended our offering, so you can either have unlimited ‘anytime, anywhere’ access to all of our content or you can now ‘pay as you go’. This puts the tools firmly in the hands of the trainer. Just as MS PowerPoint enables anyone to create a presentation, our bite-sized learning chapters enable learning & development practitioners to create their own engaging and reusable learning programmes.”
