Just because you have the skills to shoot and edit a video doesn't mean it's instructionally sound. This is why some videos are easier to learn from than others. And why that learning sticks. Watching video is a passive experience and therefore you might think there isn't much more to it than just making it more entertaining. Yea, you'd be wrong.

Dr. Patti Shank joins us to discuss some of the mental processing models you can use to your advantage when producing videos. She's taught us all how to become better multiple-choice question writers with a scientific approach, and now she's applying that same researched-based rigor to producing better training videos. She reads ALL the research so we don't have too.

Join us for another IDIODC with Patti and she continues to help the L&D community apply the research to all that we do. Save your spot today!
