Two words that should never be separated - but all too often,
Video is a key tool in e-learning. It brings learning to life;
makes it fun and absorbing. It presents the learner with reality,
rather than page after boring page of animated PowerPoint. Video is
increasingly how people learn and communicate online.
Interactive video is even more effective.
It holds attention.
It engages emotion.
It demands to be remembered.
It's not a passive experience - the viewer has to sit up and take notice or the learning and scoring opportunities are missed. They can interact with the video through hidden or visible hotspots to explore other videos, text, audio, graphics, and anything else you want to provide. Each interaction with a hotspot can be scored through a Learning Management System (LMS), ending the separation between learning and testing.
Everything you want to know about interactive video.
If you're using xApi (Tin Can), you can
dramatically enhance the learning experience, going beyond the
standard pass/fail capabilities of an LMS. You can capture
information about every hotspot choice and consolidate it into
dashboards or leaderboards; motivate through competition, or give a
sense of progress to your learners as they improve their level of
achievement. The information captured can be integrated with other
systems, perhaps to automate site security and access or IT
security and provisioning.
Transition's partners, Outtakes, are passionate about crafting great video. Their distinctive style is all about reality. Real working people filmed in their workplaces. This has two distinct benefits for clients - it's cost-effective and, crucially, it's believable. Even where actors have to be used careful scripting and understated performance create realistic scenes.

Interactive video has applications that translate into every
workplace and every job. It can be used for demonstration, in
teaching how things work or what to do with them, in customer
service, in interview techniques; the list goes on. Essentially if
it involves things that you can do, see, feel - if it involves
people - then you can use interactive video.
