Video Killed the PowerPoint Star - Creating In-House Media-Rich Training Materials
Date Thursday, Nov 24 Time – Room Tiergarten I/II/III
How to produce your own media-rich learning content, without the need for specialist knowledge, equipment or training? By having a clear structure and process, it is possible to convert the most complex technical content into visually appealing learning materials. If you no longer want to compromise on pre-made, off the shelf content and want to make your own media-rich training, this session is for you.
Instructional Designer, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Canada
Ellen Hayes, Master of Digital Media (MDM), is an Instructional Designer at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). She crafts engaging learning experiences for clinicians, staff, patients and patients’ support systems. Her current work has provided the opportunity to inform design of scenario-based virtual reality simulations for medical students and staff. Past work includes instructional design for online retail systems. She is especially passionate about the topics of 360° video, virtual reality (VR), and virtual simulation for training and clinical mental health treatment applications.

How to Make Great Video Content with your SMEs, Ben Gallacher
From this presentation you will learn to create your own video learning content, discover the importance of reimagining the role of video learning and how to save time in the video production process.
In the world of Learning & Development there are two types of video content - stuff we make and stuff we buy. Both are an exercise of compromise. Make our own stuff and we compromise on quality, on ambition, our time, etc. Buy in pre-made, off the shelf content and we compromise on context, on message, on costs, etc.
Over the last five years I have produced hundreds of videos with diverse SME’s for a wide range of organisations. Throughout this experience I have developed a unique approach to producing broadcast quality video which I will share with you in this presentation.
I hope individuals will leave with a better understanding of how to produce their own video learning content without the need for specialist knowledge, equipment of training.
- Produce your own video learning content without the need for specialist knowledge, equipment of training.
- Top ten tips for producing your own video learning content.
- Learn about a unique approach to produce broadcast quality video.
Converting Technical Presentations to Video or Learning Modules: A Sure Fire Way, Matthew Day
This presentation will show you the process and pitfalls to make a short, sharp, clear video from a sometimes lengthy and detailed technical PPT presentation that can be applied to any technical subject.
Sometimes, technical presentations are just too, well technical. Scientists and engineers know a lot, and sometimes they want their audience to know a lot as well. How do you distil the key elements of their valuable, expert knowledge and give the audience what they really need to know, without losing the key information?
Before they commit to do a Physiological experiment on the ISS, Astronauts have to be briefed on what the experiment entails and how it affects them. This briefing used to be done by the experiment scientist, remotely via PPT. We have recently changed this process and now create a (max) 5 min video explaining the experiment.
This talk explains how this is done. The process and pitfalls to be negotiated in order to make a short, sharp, clear video from a sometimes lengthy and detailed technical presentation. This process can be applied to any technical subject. The video presentation has advantages over the PPT in that it is more appealing to the crew, can be viewed at any time, and frees up the scientists to do other things.
The end result does not have to be a video. It could be a module of E-Learning, a PDF or even a more concise PPT. By having a clear structure and process, the production cycle can be optimised to save time, money and effort.
- Convert a complex technical presentation into a more visually appealing and concise video.
- Apply the lessons to any kind of technical presentation or subject.
- Create more focused content.
Increase Learner Engagement with Media-Rich Scenario-Based Training, Ellen Hayes
In this session participants will receive tips for building more effective and engaging elearning interactions by using media-rich scenario-based training. The session will discuss the design and development phases of scenario-based learning, including tips for limiting scope, reducing production costs and simplifying workflow.
Scenario-based learning has been shown to increase learner engagement, knowledge retention, and confidence. A well-crafted scenario in any form of media can be effective, but intertwined with media such as illustration, animation, filmed video, or virtual reality, greater immersion is possible.
Ellen Hayes will walk participants through an iterative design process for scenario flow, beginning with mind mapping in Miro to the capabilities of Twine.
After this session, you’ll walk away understanding how prototyping scenario flow using the open-source tool Twine can cut down on production costs and time.
- Plan out the design process for a training scenario.
- Key design considerations at each of step of the scenario development process.
- Key functions of the scenario prototyping tool Twine (open source).
