More and more businesses are beginning to utilise digital resources in order to promote their brand, educate their employees, or increase their returns - and you don’t want to get left behind. Read on to learn more about how e-learning videos can benefit your business!

Key Benefits Of E-Learning Videos

Did you know that the human brain can process videos 60,000 times faster than it can process text? Not only are videos more accessible and engaging for audiences, but they’re also much easier to absorb - especially in the modern-day world where digital content is becoming the norm! Studies indicate that learners generally absorb and recall around 10% of textual content, 65% of visual content and an astonishing 95% of audio-visual content – meaning e-learning videos actually deliver more beneficial results than traditional paper-based training courses. When your goal is to get a message across, this body of research shows that there is no better way to make sure that your viewers effectively receive and retain that message than investing in an e-learning video rather than print. 





Some of the biggest advantages of e-learning courses include:

  1. Present Information Easily: If you’ve got complicated information or a lot of details to communicate, then an e-learning video can help you to do this in a simple and easy to understand way. Videos allow you to condense huge amounts of information into digestible pieces, enabling your employees or students to remain more engaged with the content. They also provide more effective ways to present complicated concepts or intertwining themes using connected visuals and other devices that are not possible in print. 
  2. Cost Effective & Time Saving: E-learning videos generally work out to be less expensive than traditional face to face training programmes. With no expensive manuals or other learning aids to print and assemble, your business can deliver robust training programmes simply by clicking a button. At the end of the day, materials cost money, and - although producing a video can sometimes require an up-front expense - the lack of tangible resources in e-learning adds up to enormous savings down the line. Additionally, as e-learning videos tend to be user led, you can use your time more efficiently. The videos can be replayed again and again, with no costly reprinting or restocking of materials on your part. Just press play and let the video speak for itself. 
  3. Available 24/7: Perfect for employees who are based overseas or work a different shift pattern, e-learning videos can be accessed remotely at any time of day. This allows learners to progress at their own pace and to spread their cognitive load. Additionally, your message will be able to be much more effectively received than a lecture, as viewers can pause, re-wind, and re-watch segments in order to take notes or ensure comprehension. Gone are the days of coordinating complicated and often conflicting schedules and blocking out hours of valuable company time for training sessions. With e-learning videos the audience can watch from anywhere at any time. Plus, these videos can be accessed from a wide range of device types, so no matter what kind of tech your employees or students have, your video will be accessible to them.
  4. Great for All Learning Styles: E-learning videos work well for a wide range of learning styles, making them a versatile addition to any training package. Despite being a visual medium, videos with a voiceover can be very useful for aural learners (those who learn best through listening) and subtitles can offer great benefit to verbal learners (those who learn best through written or spoken word). Studies have shown that multi-modal methods of information delivery work best for comprehension, and the versatility of video production greatly promotes this aspect of learning, especially when it is tailored directly to the target audience. 
  5. Greater depth of information: Due to the digital nature of e-learning videos, companies can now learn more than ever about their target audience with statistics such as video completion per individual, total number of views, and even self-test options to ensure comprehension. Knowing your audience is just as important as presenting a cohesive message to that audience, and the insights that digital education can provide to you is just as valuable as the education that your videos are providing.
