Rapid Video Development for Learning Certificate
February 3-4, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m

Gain the confidence to produce affordable, high-quality video quickly.
Talent development professionals are increasingly called on to create training video content that extends learning in the classroom and beyond. In this certificate course you will learn how to make a training video using consumer-level equipment that looks professional and reinforces learning. Drawing on both media psychology and learning theory, the course takes you through a step-by-step planning process for structuring learner-centered didactic video. You’ll plan a storyboard and write an engaging script, learn the e-learning video production process, streamline production to using rapid video techniques, effectively use a camera and compose shots, and edit video.

In this hands-on and interactive workshop, based on ATD's bestselling book, Rapid Video Development for Trainers by Jonathan Halls, participants will have the opportunity to create actual learning videos using the camera provided in the program.

This is a two-day face-to-face learning event in which participants bring their laptops. ATD will provide a lightweight digital camera, tripod, and microphone for you to use in small groups. To learn more about the format and equipment requirements for this workshop, click here.

“In my preconference Certificate I made connections with people I could go out to dinner with to discuss our hopes and plans for the conference, as well as the challenges we faced in our roles back at home. I was able to pick these same faces out of the crowd during sessions and keynotes, making the conference feel friendlier and granting me the confidence to engage with other attendees whom I did not know.”
