The Benefits of Video-Based eLearning

The Benefits of Video-Based eLearning


Care managers are fast-discovering that eLearning is an incredibly cost-effective way to train their care staff. However, some people remain unaware of the reasons why video-based eLearning is favourable over text-based. Below are some key reasons as to why this is the recommended way of eLearning:

Attention Grabbing – Videos are more likely to grab the attention of a viewer, this is due to your eyes being more attracted to movement over something that is static, and non-eye-catching.

Videos Engage Viewers – A video can take information and make it easy for the viewer to interpret. Your brain processes visuals much faster than text. 90% of the total information transmitted to your brain is visual. Your brain is capable of processing visuals 60,000 times faster than text!

Video Content is Memorable – Most people require a visual aid to learn, which text-based eLearning cannot offer. Viewers can retain 95% of a video’s message, as compared to 10% of a text-based message! You are able to package much more information and the message you are conveying into a short narrative, as opposed to having to read loads of text.

Most of the other social care eLearning competitors tend to use text-based eLearning, which is also aided using stock images that have been purchased. However, at CareTutor we provide video-based content which has been created by filming professional actors in real care settings.

Your staff are more likely to retain the knowledge that has been provided to them throughout their training, as our video-training packages also come with interactive content to ensure they understand and remember the information that has been presented to them.

These are just some of the reasons why CareTutor are the number one choice for social care eLearning!
