How Video and Webcasting can Help Employees Fulfill Continuing Education Requirements

Posted by Chris Fasano on May 31, 2017 2:01:00 PM

Some of your company’s employees have licenses or certifications that require continuing education. Generally, “Continuing Education” means that an employee must receive a certain number of hours of additional training on an annual or bi-annual basis to keep their license or certification. If you employ lawyers, teachers, healthcare workers, food service professionals, or various training professionals, then you may already be aware of these requirements, which help professionals stay up to date on changes in their profession’s best practices, legal compliance, and new developments.

For Effective e-Learning, Webcasting Has it All

Posted by Daniel Roche on Feb 15, 2017 12:00:00 PM
The overwhelming majority of learners want self-paced content they can consume whenever wherever they want. The use of multimedia in eLearning courses suits this majority well. Content that can take hours to read can be effectively explained in minutes through video or audio, with greater user retention to boot.

In addition to giving learners the flexibility to view course content at their convenience, eLearning has other benefits for businesses that provide customized training in the workplace or administer professional certifications:

  • Saves time on preparing and updating content.
  • Saves the expenses of trainers, classrooms or other learning venues, and attendee travel costs.
  • Enables consistency in training. Employees throughout the company get the same quality learning materials at the same time.
  • Makes accessibility easy on any device the learner chooses.

Webcasting is increasingly being used to educate and certify audiences of all stripes. With Convey, registration, security, polling, and reporting options allow presenters to see when viewers are watching and completing the required coursework. Quizzes confirm comprehension of the materials, and certification is handled automatically by the system.

TalkPoint’s technology seamlessly connects to most proprietary and third-party learning management systems (LMS).

Human Resources and Video: Connect and Engage with Employees

Posted by Joseph de Leon on Dec 6, 2016 1:52:10 PM

Video helps reinforce employees’ desire for corporate transparency and fosters a feeling among employees of being valued by management. An executive can share company news with expressions and body language that simply cannot be conveyed through text. This authentic communication builds trust among employees, bolstering their emotional connection to the company.

As the steward of your company’s culture and values, the Human Resources function plays a crucial role in engaging and uniting employees. Effective internal communication is vital for success. Layer on a multi-generational, geographically dispersed workforce, and the communication challenges only multiply.

With the swelling popularity of YouTube and video viewing among consumers, it’s not surprising that corporate video usage is rising. Video engages employees like no other medium.
