Over the last three decades, education has moved beyond the four walls of the classroom to the infinite possibilities of the internet. As a result, training resources that use rich media are widely available: on YouTube and Vimeo, through open education resources and lecture capture inside LMS, and via third-party content-rich media libraries. As such resources become fully integrated into the learning space, organizations must recognize which video resources work best to effectively train and educate their employees.

During this complimentary webinar, Laurie Burruss, education consultant for, will discuss how online video can be used as a powerful tool for engaging learners, while changing and enhancing the way they learn. She will also explain how a great online video addresses the "why" of each lesson, present the big picture of the subject matter and support it with granular details and steps.

Attendees of this session will also learn about additional factors that impact the effectiveness of video-based learning -- including availability of transcripts and closed-captioning, playback controls and real-time access -- as well as the benefits of simplicity, personalization and customization, and learning in a private environment.

As education consultant at, Laurie Burruss supports the company's academic initiatives and evangelizes all things higher education. In addition to her services at, she serves as a full professor in interaction design and chair of digital media at Pasadena City College, where she has acted as a regional resource for the state of California during the past 19 years in an effort to further collaboration between education, industry and the community.
