Interactive and Personalized Video based Learning is a new advancement changing the landscape of Learning & Development altogether. FocusOn Learning Conference and Expo is one of the biggest e-learning conferences held in Texas this year, from June 8th to 10th. The conference focus was trends and technologies that are changing the approaches to training. Exaltive conducted a speaker session at the ‘FocusOn Video Program’.

The session shared insights on how an interactive video learning experience gives the power of choice, fosters collaboration, and promotes increased knowledge retention. The session explained how existing or new videos can be enriched with feedback personalization (such as Q&A, branching, quizzes, and surveys) and the factors to consider when onboarding an interactive video program. The major highlight of the session was how analytics driven by interactions, captured using the xAPI, can help measure learner behavior and effectiveness of the program to further fine-tune the overall learning experience.
