Have you ever wondered what it would take to create better audio and video for your You Tube channel, perhaps recording and distributing videos for your company’s on demand, ELearning initiative? Many companies today, as well as individual contributors on social media, are quickly learning that video is where it’s at for training and marketing communications.
The 2016 Social Media Marketing Industry Report shows Facebook video and You Tube among the hottest trends in socializing information and on demand learning. Similar social learning platforms and micro learning in corporations will soon become an “essential” component of any effective training program. In 2015, I decided to turn my home office into a micro learning recording studio where I can produce recorded or live video, voiceover narration, screencasts, podcasts and webinars; all within a relatively small area and not a large budget.
The results have been tremendous!
Don’t feel like you don’t have the ability to make it happen for you or your company’s training program. With a little bit of cross training, and some excited associates, you can begin to start on the foundation of your own micro and social learning initiative for your employees.
If you develop eLearning, or work in corporate communications and marketing, you have likely been handed a script that a stakeholder wants to have recorded to synchronize with their presentation. If that sounds like you, and you have a copy of the freeware Audacity, then you are in luck. Audacity has a feature that allows you to tag your single audio file and export it into multiple files, all labeled and ready to insert and match to your visuals!
