Camera Ready: NovoEd Introduces Video Practice Learning Experience
February 1, 2022
The NovoEd team recently released a major component of our comprehensive suite of learning software: Video practice, an engaging learning activity to promote practice, peer learning, and feedback via customizable video-based scenarios.
The NovoEd Video Practice feature empowers administrators and learning experience designers to create interactive scenarios with video- and/or text-based prompts that learners must respond to in the moment by recording their response with their webcam or phone. After their session, learners can continue their immersive experience by exploring others’ work, viewing exemplary prior submissions, giving and responding to text and video feedback, and re-practicing to successfully build capabilities such as effective and efficient employee onboarding, leadership development, sales training and enablement, and customer service skillbuilding.
“Our team has built native support for the NovoEd Video Practice to offer our clients the most integrated offering within learning experiences, as well as beyond them. This new feature adds a substantial component to NovoEd’s deep capability-building suite of tools,” said NovoEd Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Farnaz Ronaghi. “Video Practice promotes ongoing sharpening of skills to establish confidence and efficacy. It provides a strong place of proof for learning outcomes, which is often a missing component of corporate learning experiences.”
Get Ready for Your Close Up
When implementing NovoEd’s Video Practice, administrators can define Practice Scenarios that learners engage with when completing a Practice Activity within a course or when re-practicing via Practice Rooms outside of a course.
A Practice Scenario is, in essence, a prompt intended to mimic a real world situation learners will likely encounter in their day-to-day lives. Situations best suited for Practice Scenarios are those mastered through repeated practice and refinement, such as delivering a pitch for Sales Reps or executing an effective communication strategy for Customer Experience professionals, managers, and leaders at all levels.
Learners respond to Practice Scenarios using their webcam or by sharing their screen, recording their reaction to the prompt, and – depending on your Practice Scenario’s privacy settings – sharing their practice for feedback with the teaching team, mentors, and/or their peers within the scenario’s Practice Room.
Within the Practice Room, users will encounter a rich set of feedback and social capabilities. Feedback may be left as either text or recorded video and can be targeted to a point-in-time within the practice or left at the end for broader commentary. Additional people may be invited to share their thoughts or give feedback using at-mentions, or lighter reassurances can be offered in the form of giving a “like.”
With feedback in hand, learners are able to re-practice their response to the scenario on an ongoing basis – improving not only their ability to handle this specific situation, but also building underlying skills to help them succeed long term.
