The digital classroom allows students to be educated in ways they never were before. How do eLearning and videos help in the classroom? Not only will it improve year after year—in fact, roughly half of all college classes will be eLearning based by 2019—but it is also shorter than classroom training on the same subject by up to 60%, according to Brandon Hall, 2001 and Rosenberg 2001. There are countless benefits to eLearning and watching videos over instructor training. Here are 3:
- 85% of every dollar that is spent on classroom training is spent on the delivery. What does that mean? Time is valuable. For the amount of time that an instructor is standing up in front of the classroom, that same amount of time is spent on the instructor getting to the classroom. Video saves not only time, but money as well.
- Watching videos is proven to increase knowledge retention by 25% to 60% (Corporate eLearning Exploring a New Frontier, WR Hambrecht.). As we have said before, the human brain can only sustain attention for about 8 seconds. In order to have people pay attention, you need to learn how not to overload the brain; understand what it is exactly students are trying to accomplish by being there; and what will attract them.
- Lastly, and most importantly, you can save between 50% and 70% (IOMA) of not only time, but also money, by replacing instructor-based learning with eLearning and videos. If you are a technology driven university, this is your answer. This is the future.
eLearning and videos are proving to be the education solution time and time again. Not only has it proven it’s success by how much money you can save, but also by how much people are learning from video over instructors. Want to learn more about the KZO Video Suite? Contact us today!
