Video is ubiquitous, but are you getting the value? 89% of you are doing some form of video training for either yourself or you and your team. It’s important to ensure you’re getting the value from those hours behind the screen. After a course, are you tying the course learning objectives to real-world projects? Are you checking back in on skill development for time periods following completion of a course? Are you holding yourself and your people accountable for using the methods they learn in the videos? If you’re not demanding application and reinforcement, you’re likely just logging more hours behind a screen. It’s important to find ways to put those great video courses into practice if you want to get the value out of them.
