A lot of online training involves video content, such as informal smartphone videos, webcam videos, or interactive video interviews. These are fantastic ways to captivate learners and present typical e-learning content in more visual and engaging ways.
Another creative way to use videos in e-learning is to clone yourself in the video to simulate talking to yourself at the same time. I’ve been interested in this effect for a while, but after seeing this short video from Renaldo Lawrence, I knew it would make a fun e-learning challenge.
