The use of Video in L&D
How much video plays a role in the % of training material?
I have experienced a previous instance in one factory where they sat all the new employees down in a room and played a video to cover all the safety training on a small TV.
Once the video had finished, the employees where then told by the trainer/supervisor:
'That covers your safety training for working with the machinery in our factory. Any questions?'
The video looked like it was produced in the 1970s.
It looked like this 1974 video on Forcible Entry for police:
(Although this video was more fun to watch.)
Thanks for any input from community members experience or thoughts on this.
