New Video Player Improves Your e-learning Experience

We have now completed a significant upgrade to the training area of the Human Focus e-Learning system. Ian Pemberton, Human Focus Managing Director says, “we would like to thank all of the many customers who have provided us with helpful ideas and suggestions for improving the video player that is used for our online health and safety courses. We have listened carefully to them all and we hope you will agree that result improves significantly the user experience. So far the feedback has unanimously been that this is a big improvement. But, this is an ongoing process of improvement, so please, do not hesitate to tell us what you think.” The new video player interface in the online health and safety training area now has three screen sizes which the trainee can select – Normal, Large and Full Screen.

Human Focus has been a pioneer in the field of video-based health and safety e-Learning in the UK. The company has been able to demonstrate to its customers that video-based courses have highly significant benefits over still picture and text formatted e-Learming courses. These benefits include:

  • Significant cost savings in training course delivery – trainees can cover the same training content via video courses in a fraction of the time it takes to study lots of text and still images
  • Improved trainee accessibility12 million adult workers have the reading age of children. Many employees struggle to learn effectively via text and picture. With video it’s no problem for those with even minimal literacy skills
  • Improved trainee learning – our research has shown that many employees are turned off by text and picture e-Learning courses – describing them as “boring” and “like a book without the benefits“. Video is not only more engaging but it can convey messages far more powerfully and in ways that are just not possible via still images.
