ATD Certificate Program On Rapid Video Development For Learning Professionals

Video is the new flipchart. Learning and development professionals are increasingly called on to create video content that extends learning beyond the classroom; as well as to introduce more learning resources into classroom training. This ATD Certificate Program On Rapid Video Development For Learning Professionals teaches learning professionals how to use consumer-level equipment to create engaging video that looks professional and reinforces learning. Participants will learn all aspects of shooting professional-looking video, from planning and pre-production, to shooting and recording sound, to editing and deployment.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how video works as a communication method in relation to learning content.
  • Understand how human cognition and adult learning theory apply to media content.
  • Plan and structure a didactic video so the content is quick and easy to understand.
  • Draw a video production storyboard that blocks out each shot size and camera position.
  • Write a video script that follows the conventions of “writing to picture.”
  • Create a production plan that includes logistics review, shot plan, responsibility chart, and risk assessment.
  • Shoot video on a consumer-level camera with manual functionality.
  • Cut shots together using a storyboard or timeline video editor and add appropriate message layers.
  • Publish final video in a format appropriate to your distribution platform.

Video offers many advantages to trainers and their organizations that are looking to bring richer learning resources into the classroom, as well as extend learning to mobile and e-learning platforms. Well-produced didactic video enables learning professionals to offer visual learning content to participants wherever they want it, whenever they need it, and at whatever pace that works for their learning styles. Learning video reduces the time, hassle, and costs associated with attending events to gain knowledge which can be just as easily picked up virtually.

With advances in technology, cameras and editing software are cheaper and easier to use than ever before. However, not all video is created equal. To deliver effective training, didactic video needs to have carefully structured content that is easy to understand, reinforces learning, and looks professional.

This highly practical two-day workshop draws on both media psychology and learning theory. Participants will be taken through a step-by-step planning process for structuring learner-centered didactic video. Participants will learn how to plan a storyboard and write an engaging script. Participants will also learn the video production process, including how to streamline it to turn out video faster; how to use a camera; how to compose shots so they are clear and aesthetically pleasing; editing basics; and how to cut video together so it both reinforces learning and looks professional.
