As we know, eLearning has become a popular way to train staff and customers in almost any industry.
From training employees on how to use industrial equipment to teaching Adobe Photoshop courses, as a British male voiceover artist, I have recorded hundreds of hours of eLearning narration and voiceovers in the last 8 years.
So it must be pretty popular!
Plugging in a professional British voiceover recording into your learning management system is no problem at all and straightforward.
Learning management systems such as the following all allow professional voiceover recordings to be added.
- Adobe Captivate
- iSpring Learn
- Talent LMS
Now, even though I’m a male British Voiceover artist, my recordings are used all over the word. It doesn’t seem to matter that my accent is British and not American for example. As having a professional record your eLearning voiceover is more important than accent in most cases.
As evidenced by how many times my British voiceover recordings are used around the world…even though I’m a British voiceover artist.
eLearning videos can be used for anything from health and safety training all the way to the process of instructing new employees about the history and culture of your company.
By making these videos, courses and other eLearning resources available and ensuring that they are produced to a high standard it is possible to make sure that an eLearning video might be even more effective than a full classroom session.
So, even though there is a cost involved with hiring a professional British voiceover artist like me to narrate your eLearning course, just imagine how much money could be saved from your budget by not having the employee downtime and potential hotel costs that come with traditional classroom training.
The big advantage of using videos for eLearning that have had a professional British male voiceover like mine added to it is that your training and/or message will be consistent. No matter how many times the video is viewed. This ensures that customers or staff are always given the same advice, training or support.
Now, before you get too excited and jump into putting together an eLearning video or course be aware of one of the major pitfalls.
One of the big issues that can occur with eLearning today is the chance
that many managers or staff members will just get someone to use their phone
and record them in front of a whiteboard and then use this footage!
Believe it or not, this happens often. Videos with un-professional voiceovers, poor video and poor sound quality are everywhere.
Some eLearning videos often have a manager speaking in a boring monotone over a slideshow presentation. We all know that this is hardly inspirational!
The problem with DIY eLearning in a business is that it can appear unprofessional and it can destroy the credibility of the manager or staff member that recorded it. No matter how well intentioned they might be.
How often have you seen a walkthrough of how to use a website or software package where the voiceover just kills it.
Using a professional British voiceover artist like me can really help
you avoid this boring monotone type of presentation and allow your company’s
message to really engage with your customers and staff.
Which is after all, why you are recording this eLearning in the first place isn’t it?
