Flip the classroom with training videos

Flipping the classroom with video  brings the lecture home, and the homework into class.   Training Videos are revolutionising teaching by delivering lessons to students at their convenience,  allowing educators to the classroom to reinforce learning with practical lessons and tuition, a learning method called “Flipping the Classroom”.

Video content is at the heart of the flipped classroom. This can take many forms, from a simple video of a lecture, to a full green screen production video, depending on…

Will 2018 be the year of Agile?

As 2018 opens more people are seeing the value of Agile in digital content and video production.     In their New Year’s blogging, Creative Bloq identified “Minimal Viable Product” (MVP)  as the number one trend in digital in 2018. MVP is a set of principles which abandons the “Big Bang”, embraces iterations and lean production, and mirrors our Agile production methods.

Green screen training videos with the UK’s top pharmacy trainer.

The UK’s top pharmacy training provider is making training videos central to their teaching.  In 2016 we produced nearly two dozen training videos for the leading provider of pharmacy training, which has allowed them to “Flip the Classroom” as well as reach many more students than previously possible using traditional methods.
