A Rapidly Growing Industry
It is safe to say that eLearning has changed how people learn and grow. Today’s fast paced media environment has altered learners expectations for captivating content. The rise in gamification in education and the crusade to keep those consuming eLearning engaged has also changed the playing field. Today’s eLearning developers grapple with daunting statistics like:
- Corporate eLearning has developed by 900% over the last 16 years.
- Social learning approaches have a 75:1 ROI over electronic preparing alone.
- In this media-centric age, 80% of the internet traffic in the world is video
- The average employee has just 1% of available time in their work week to devote to professional development.
- The worldwide eLearning market is projected to be worth $325 Billion by 2025.
- eLearning has lead to an increase in income for 42% of US organizations.
- A survey of 2,500 companies found that those with “comprehensive training programs” have 218% higher revenue per employee and 24% higher profit margins.
The Right Voice
ELearning developers spend weeks, or even months developing courses that strive to achieve educational objectives and they want their audience, in turn, to be engaged and invested in that learning. A narration that falls flat, or merely delivers the content without connection to the material is often a large detraction from that effort. Even with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) narrating their own material, they can lack the presentation and instructional skills to get across their message no matter how knowledgeable they are about their subject. The choice of narrator for the project is a crucial element in the design process and can often determine if your learners will go the distance with the course, or be knocked out in the first round (and not in a good way). Gaming and interactive educational models also often incorporate re-enactments or scenarios that require acting skills as well to make them authentic and believable. A good narrator can deliver great content, or even improve on mediocre content but a disconnected or unskilled narrator can kill learning and engagement completely.
