As humans become more comfortable will technology (think Millennials and their successor Gen Z), employees will no longer be interested in Powerpoint and printed handout manuals. A multimedia solution is quickly becoming the norm for thriving organizations with 93% of teams seeing a video as essential to communication and 67% of respondents planning to increase their video budget according to a leading internal communication research and training organization.
Multimedia can sound like a great thing on paper but how does it stack up in real life? With all the buzz around audio, media, animation, and video it can be hard to see how a multimedia campaign could fit into your organization. With that in mind, we’ve compiled some case studies from our clients who looked for multimedia solutions to bring about change in their company and how it impacted their programs when they found multimedia success.
In this day and age, people have what seems like infinite ways of communicating with each other but not all communication are created equal. For some texting is the way to go; for others, it’s keeping up that Snapchat streak; and sometimes you can’t beat an old-fashioned, handwritten letter. When it comes to your company, have you considered multimedia communication?
By now Multimedia isn’t a new concept. Between Instagram Live and Snapchat’s augmented reality, we’re pretty comfortable around multi-forms of media usage. However, sometimes we fail to see how we can apply media into our professional life when it comes to corporate digital learning. Multimedia learning can be defined as the combination of narrative, images, video, audio, and animation designed to engage users; it’s a great way to make learning more exciting.
It’s the start of a new year, and with that comes new strategies, technologies, and a new resolve to improve L&D initiatives across the board. But we’re not the only ones making resolutions for an effective 2017: We reached out to 85 L&D pros across a number of different industries to see what their focus for 2017 would be and the results surprised us. Check out some of the most interesting findings and see if they align with your organization’s L&D goals.
Think about the most effective marketing campaign you’ve ever seen. Maybe it was the empowering Always #likeagirl campaign, or you wanted to Share a Coke after watching the latest round of Coca-Cola commercials. Maybe you teared up watching Google’s Year in Search spot. Whatever pulls at your heartstrings, makes you laugh, or makes you act, the same is true across the board: marketing has a way of connecting to your emotions.
At the risk of divulging some of our favorite apps, we will admit that there’s something gratifying about being able to demonstrate rejection with a single swipe. In a social scene where you have about five seconds to make a good impression, creating an immediate connection with your audience can do more than get you a date. But how do you get engaging content?
You put a ton of resources into creating a learning initiative for your team, all just to have it be neglected to wither away in an LMS graveyard. Sound familiar? It’s frustrating to put all of your time and energy into a program that doesn’t really get a response. Maybe you even tried to send out an email to drum up support–and still; nothing. Read More
