Video and Animation: Universal Formats Loved by Learners
Video serves many critical purposes in learning today. It’s a flexible, cost-effective, and ubiquitous medium that can be used powerfully to create the right impact at the right time.
Your learners love it as it’s a medium they’re familiar with. Learning designers love it as they can deliver complex information in a concise way. Storytelling that’s relatable and emotive makes it a critical tool to drive behavior change.
Effective video isn’t necessarily about cinematic-style productions and big budgets either. Simple, user-generated content from a peer can also instantly command your learners’ attention.
It’s this deep understanding of the medium that sets LEO Learning apart. Our dedicated, in-house team of video and animation gurus understand your learners’ needs. We'll bring your video and animation vision to life.

Learning Video That Meets the Expectations of Today’s Learners
The beauty of video for learning is that we use it in our everyday life. So your learners already expect to absorb information this way.
Video is a powerful part of a blended learning approach that supports micro-learning. Your learners, for example, can watch a 60-second video from an expert on their mobile, at the very moment they require that information.

We produce a huge range of video styles, that fall into four main categories:
Written by professional dramatists and scriptwriters. We understand how to create stories that drive emotional engagement. Whatever the scale or the location, our drama content delivers realistic situations that learners instantly relate to.
From expert and senior team interviews to promotional videos and product demonstrations. Modern animation overlays can add additional information, creating moving infographics that enhance the learning still further.
Interactive video is a highly-engaging way of delivering short scenario-based learning integrated within a video file (*link). We weave together powerful narratives with realistic decision points that truly challenge learners.
Immersive 360 Video
This video format allows full immersion in the content—the learner is surrounded by a visual environment, with no distractions. This is especially useful for recreating an experience for training purposes, such as hazard-spotting. We can create interactions within these environments, as well as visually rich presentations.
