ou might already use videos in your training courses, but from from tomorrow onwards, your participants can easily record and submit videos in aNewSpring. In other words: Put your learners in the video drivers’ seat!

The new feature makes the following scenarios possible:

  1. Ask participants to include a welcome video and introduce themselves to the group.
  2. Introduce a specific situation by video and ask your learners to record and hand in their response: asynchronous video role-play!
  3. Share these video responses amongst learners so they can see different approaches and their effectiveness.
  4. Ask participants to record a video that demonstrates how they have put their new skills to use (e.g. delivered a presentation thanks to new presentation skills).
  5. Hand in role-play exercises with another learner, colleague or even a customer.
  6. Hand in 360-degree video feedback; explain how peers, colleagues, supervisors and customers experienced the performance of the learner.
  7. Offer video reflection; learners record a ‘thinking-out loud’ reflection on their learning.
  8. Share examples of anything that can be useful and relevant for your peers (co-learners), as related to the learning journey – social learning.
  9. Hand in the assignment of a video-recorded interview with an expert, thought leader, client or customer to share their perspective on the topic.
  10. Share how a topic from the training course is relevant or applies to your work environment.

Although many people don’t like to record videos, evidence shows that a familiar and safe environment takes the pressure off: “online courses allow for additional time to compose thoughts, reactions and reflections on course content without the pressure of real-time interaction”.

We’ve now made the video hand-in assignment feature available for all aNewSpring users.
What this means is that a learning designer can simply add it to a learning journey.
