Frequently Asked Questions
What does e-Learning mean?
e-Learning, Tutorial Video and Video Tutorial are all synonyms and they refer to the use of video in learning and teaching
What information is needed to begin to calculate an offer?
For the calculation of the offer we need to understand what must be explained to the student,
- instructions for use of a product
- maintenance of machinery or disassembly of a part of the machine
- warnings on the risks for the incorrect use of a product
- instructions for safety and health at work
- description of a production process with video animated simulations
In addition, we must evaluate the length of the movie, which is required in order to explain everything in detail.
How long does it take to make a movie?
The time required to make the video are to be divided into two phases:
- shooting, usually at the customer site;
if for example the video should explain the replacement of a mechanical component, we will film your technician showing the whole operation in the details
- editing of director, at our offices;
with our software we cut, assemble, and comment on videos, moreover we integrate with animated drawings if necessary, etc.
Adding the times of general organisation, typically movies are made within 30-90 days from the order.
What is the cost of a movie?
Formation achieved by means of video is cheaper than the training made with traditional methods;
Costs are generally proportional to the length of the final movie and to the possible complexity of the shooting.
Videos have audio?
It depends on customer's request and what must be explained.
Often the customer chooses a music, simple without copyright, in the background, without any voice and with short sentences written in one language.
What and how many languages can be managed in the movie?
Every movie should show only one language, to make it easier the training video course;
we can duplicate movies and put in each a different language, for example English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, etc;
we often agreed with customers that written text on the screen is more efficient than voiceover;
language management is simpler and less expensive with the written text on the screen.
Where the video is made?
Shooting is usually done at customer site.
What are the benefits for the company that offers the course of teaching?
- Video courses may be sold as traditional courses, but are cheaper, and then reach more customers
- Greater dissemination of information related to own products
- Video courses are modular
- Possibility to provide their courses also to professional schools, obtaining advertising on its own products without additional costs
What are the advantages for the student?
- Unlimited possibilities to revisit any part of video course, stop it, and see it again
- Opportunity to study when he wants
- No longer need to take notes in class, the course video is always available to remember the most difficult parts
What are the benefits for the company that pays for the training of its own employee?
- By purchasing a single video course, they can train more employees
- There are no travel costs, hotel and transfer to attend the course
- The course is useful again for new hires
What are the disadvantages?
None. Resistance to change is only generated by laziness toward a new technique of learning. Statistics show, however, that students of any age and culture rapidly adapt to the new method, because they learn more quickly and with less effort.
Companies will not produce any more classroom training?
Depends on the company's commercial choice, often training courses are also a time to meet with its own distributors and customers;
but videos courses may also be used to optimize the organization of the classroom training.
For example, it is possible to reduce the time spent in the classroom limiting the explanations to only essential arguments;
or send the video to students prior to classroom, inviting them to study, during the meeting in the classroom there will be a debate just on the most difficult or not sufficiently analyzed topics.
Companies can verify the effectiveness of the course and the preparation reached by each student?
Yes, it is available on request a software platform to test what the student has learned.
For example, access to the next course could be restricted only to students who have successfully passed some of the questions,
or, students' names may be listed in a table with coloured symbols in the side of each:
- red = tests not yet passed
- yellow = tests partially passed
- green = tests passed
