More Video Flexibility with ConveYour - 4 Key Video Options

Some learning management systems don't offer a lot of flexibility in terms of how I want to deliver video to learners. For some, I have to upload the video, and the LMS platform hosts and embeds it. For others, I can include the link of a video hosted on video platforms like YouTube or Vimeo, but it's not always clear if my intellectual property is protected.

With ConveYour, I have found that I have more options available to me on where I host the videos and how I present them. Here are the 4 most notable video options:

  1. Custom Start and Stops. One valuable option ConveYour offers is the ability to control how much of a video is shown to the learner. I can show only a section of a video using the custom start and stop range slider. This allows me to focus in on a specific moment if I need to make a point for the learner. Convert a long lecture into a fun, short, micro-learning moment.

  2. Focus Learner Attention. I can also select whether or not I want to showcase the video by itself - to focus full learner attention to the video - or if I want it to be shown on a the same page with some context.

  3. Protect Intellectual Property. Some of the content I work with contains proprietary information that I don't want readily available for public consumption. Hosting private video with hosts like Wistia, Vimeo, or Sprout ensure that my videos are not searchable - yet I can still embed them in ConveYour lessons.

  4. Encourage Completion. If I want to ensure they complete a video lesson - and watch a video in its entirety before moving forward - I can make the video a requirement by setting it to a "must watch" video. "Must watch" videos are very valuable for employee development compliance training.

So what? Really? This puts the content creator in the driver's seat! I don't have to rely on a team of engineers to "have it my way". The lessons system is very intuitive and with the new video controls in place, I have multiple ways to deliver video content that better serves the learners.
