Does your video training suck? We can help.

No one wakes up in the morning and thinks, “I can’t wait to sit through some boring employee training video today.” If your video training isn’t informative and interesting, it’s a waste of everyone’s time. So what can you do to ensure your employees are engaged? We have three tips that can help you be more successful.

One

USE REAL-LIFE SITUATIONS

It may seem a little obvious, but providing your people with a real-life scenario will give them insight into the situation and give them relevant professional development training they need to succeed.

Two

INCLUDE EXPERTS

No one wants to listen to someone who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Having an expert in your video training adds more weight to the your training.

Three

DON’T BE BORING

Seriously. It’s ok to have fun — maybe even include some cats, everyone likes cats, right? Wait, you’re a dog person? Fine, just put something fluffy and cute in there. If your video is boring, you’ll immediately see your employees’ eyes glaze over and no one wants that.

5 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Company’s E-Learning Software

An LMS is supposed to teach employees valuable job skills … but some just wind up teaching you what you don’t want in an LMS. Here are a few signs it’s time to put your current learning management system out to pasture.

ONE

The LMS Isn’t in the Cloud

If your learning platform is installed software, then your employees can only use it at their desks. A cloud-based LMS lets employees learn from anywhere, on any internet-enabled device.

. . .

TWO

You Need to Involve IT in Everything

You should be able to create courses and manage content without tech support. And when you DO need IT help, it should come from the LMS provider, not your in-house team.

. . .

THREE

It Takes Too Long to Create Courses

Corporate training should be timely. Therefore, course creation should be intuitive, easy, and quick.

. . .

FOUR

Customer Support Doesn’t Cut It

Odds are you’re feeling a bit confused or frustrated when you contact customer support. Your support experience should alleviate that feeling, not add to it.

. . .

FIVE

The LMS Doesn’t Have the Necessary Reporting Capabilities

Training employees without analytics is like training for a race without timing yourself. You need to be able to see progress and identify areas for improvement.

. . .

WANT MORE?

These aren’t the only signs of a lackluster LMS.

Compare your LMS to the full list and then compare Bridge.
