Did your Company use Remote Learning During the Pandemic?
The pandemic drastically increased interest in remote eLearning because classrooms and offices weren’t safe anymore.
The Lessons We Learned
All of our professional lives were drastically altered as offices became a breeding ground for the disease. “Jonathan Sexton, a researcher at the College of Public Health at the University of Arizona, found that places such as refrigerators, drawer handles, faucet handles, push-out exit doors, and coffee pots tend to have the highest concentrations of germs” (Liang, Lu-Hai, 2020).

Recent statistics show that more than 40% of global Fortune 500 companies already use visual technology to train their employees so it’s no surprise that companies are also making the switch to videos that demonstrate a service or teach a lesson...
Just like detectives, we are always trying to get to the bottom of what our clients really need. We love answering your questions and, if we could, we would answer them all, but in order to do what we love we have to get inside your heads and see exactly what you’ve imagined. That’s why it’s our job to ask questions during the pre-production process that help us envision your ideal video concept. This is what you could call our investigation. In video production, we are creating a representation of what you envision which can be a daunting task if we aren’t prepared with the right questions to ask...
