Educational video production is a genre of content that has a goal to teach, to give some knowledge of a specific topic. This type of video is longer than explainers with a duration that can vary from five minutes to an hour, but most often tend to have 5-10 minutes length.
Learning video production is used in schools and universities, by governmental and public organizations. Businesses tend to use educational videos in staff training, HR activities such as onboarding, and when building a knowledge base. The professional training video is bread and butter for companies that provide training services, especially online.
Let’s recall school classes, college, or university lectures where educational material was given in a monotonous way with few illustrations or slides. So, sometimes it was too complicated to follow and sometimes just boring.
Even with a PowerPoint presentation, there is no guarantee that you will get full attention of your audience. Preparation of presentation always takes time, but sometimes it’s doomed to fail because it is boring. If you really want your audience to become involved listeners, you should be creative and progressive. Educational video empowered by animation means is the best way to achieve that.
