There are many different methods of creating and consuming learning. People go to classrooms. We host webinars. One very popular way of creating learning today is the use of video. The problem is that we don't always know the best way to do that. We wonder if we need to invest in expensive equipment, or can we use our smartphones to shoot it. We wonder if we need to create the video, or do we have to buy it. Maybe we can use YouTube, or some other on demand streaming service. What's the best way to use video in a classroom or in other learning venues.
The Academy is excited to announce this first ever collaboration with the Society of Insurance Trainers and Educators (SITE). We have partnered with SITE to bring you this conversation with a panel of SITE experts. This conversation, hosted by Academy Director, Patrick Wraight, will dive into the use of video. Our panel includes:
