There's a reason YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the internet (#2 as of 2023!). It's because video is so darn entertaining and can even be educational too. Video is also a popular form of microlearning.
When a video has the right focus and topic, it's a powerful tool to train employees. They can be helpful in reducing technical support calls, correcting a specific employee issue, or introducing new changes.
Video also works great within eLearning courses as part of a larger topic. That means the interactivity of a self-paced course can easily be augmented with the easy-to-digest format of video.
The Perfect Microlearning
Microlearning is a term that means different things to different people. As long as it's focused on a single task and relatively short learning can be considered micro(learning). But, video is a very popular form of microlearning.
When people need to learn how to change the cabin filter on their 2017 Honda Civic, they most likely head to YouTube. That's because it's a visual format that's easy to understand for a visual topic. Shouldn't employees have access to the same simplicity with workplace training?
When practice isn't necessary because it's a short topic, video lends itself well to technical training. In the right situations, a short video can work wonders to change behavior and empower employees.
What Can Videos Be Used For?
Video is extremely versatile even if it's not always a replacement for eLearning. We've used video for many quick training and communication purposes. It's an effective way to accomplish a lot in a short time and works well on computers, tablets, and smartphones.

We've used videos to accomplish a lot for internal technical launches and to help external customers learn applications. We've even created short animated training videos to train on important topics for employees. We'd love to share with you some of the projects we've worked on.
