Today’s learners are pressed for time, and need to be able to search within a video, not just for it, and navigate through it they way they want.
New York (PRWEB) April 9, 2007
Veotag, Inc., announced today the introduction of The E-Learning Starter Pack, which gives corporate training and e-learning professionals everything they need to put their audio and video libraries onto the web and make them more convenient, memorable and effective for learners.
Veotag (tm) gives learning professional tools that help learners find the exact audio and video segments they seek, navigate conveniently through audio and video, enrich their learning experiences. The E-Learning Starter Pack consists of an annual subscription to Veotag’s do-it-yourself services plus 40 hours of streaming per month at a special price of $3,500 per year instead of the normal price of over $5,000. The offer is good through May 31, 2007.
“Video can be a great way to learn but often the nuggets are trapped in a long, boring presentation. Nobody has time to sit through an hour of video to receive a few minutes of essence,” says Jay Cross, author of Informal Learning, Rediscovering the Nature Pathways that Inspire Performance and Innovation. “Veotag maps a video so you can go right to the part you want. I imagine many organizations will use this low-cost technique to wring value out of video and audio resources that have been gathering dust in the backroom somewhere.”
With Veotag’s E-Learning Starter Pack, learning professionals can:
- Create “actionable tables of contents”: Non-technical users can create and display clickable text menus, or “actionable tables of contents,” beside any web audio and video. The menus help learners see what’s inside the audio or video and let them click to jump directly to any part that interests them.
- Make audio and video searchable: The text in the actionable tables of contents is exposed to Google, Yahoo and a organization’s internal search engine. When learners click on a search result, they’ll jump to that moment within the audio or video.
- Add coordinated slides: Users may add coordinated slides, notes and links that display alongside the audio or video file on the learners’ screens, thereby enriching their experience.
- Create libraries: Learning professionals can create searchable libraries of their audio and video files at the touch of a button
“We created The E-Learning Starter Pack because most organizations realize that simply posting training videos onto their sites won’t be effective,” said Scott Rhodes “Today’s learners are pressed for time, and need to be able to search within a video, not just for it, and navigate through it they way they want.”
