Programming tips for eLearning developers: Distributing microlearning training videos
Here at Pathways we specialize in all things training and eLearning, and as such, we have created microlearning training videos for several different clients.
Basically, microlearning means modules that deliver content in small bursts, for example, live action videos or whiteboard animations with a duration of 2-3 minutes (maximum 4 minutes); but after the content has been produced, how do we distribute it to our learners?
Using Learning Management Systems
Like many of our clients, let’s assume that the content you want to distribute has confidential information that you wouldn’t like your competitors to know. As such, we can make use the advantages that an LMS gives us: Protected information and completion tracking.
But how do you track completion on a video?
Well, it depends on the LMS you are using. For example with Pathways LMS, you can create different kinds of learning activities, videos among those options, and you can manually set the completion criteria, for example, just by accessing the video, it will be marked as completed.
If you have a different type of LMS, that can only import SCORM compliant activities, you can always use a SCORM wrapper to upload your microlearning video to your platform.
There are two options you can use to SCORM wrap your video:
Authoring tool: If you want to make your life simpler, you can always use an authoring tool, such as Articulate Storyline or Adobe Captivate, and as a matter of fact, these tools give you the advantage to create quick, short knowledge checks at the end of the videos, that will even expand the options of your completion criteria, either by just watching the video or by successfully answering the questions in the knowledge check.
By doing this, you can certainly distribute your microlearning training video in a secure manner while keeping the tracking capabilities.
