Power Videos

If a picture can paint a thousand words, how much a video can?

Statistics Videos are the new era of teaching and learning. Honestly, I understand my lessons more in videos than my teachers have taught me during classes. It is also maybe because our mind is more likely to retain pictures than words.

It is more engaging for audiences rather than traditional teaching (classroom lecture type). If a video is embedded in the website, visitors can just click and watch the videos to learn what is your site all about and what are the services being offered. It may be costly, but effective.

Retention is one basic factor a consumer could have, and this is easily achieved by videos. This is accomplished if the videos have a great production design. Many experts assert that viewer engagement is maximized by chunked content and short (<6 minutes) videos. In fact, this seems to be one of the few best practices that are widely accepted, but educators should make sure that the actual content of the topic is not misinterpreted or misunderstood.

It is astonishing that the modern day learners have this medium to learn

There are so many ways to learn, the only question is, how you would like it to be.
