Explainer Videos: Effective Tools To Pass Info Messages

Explainer videos are becoming more popular with each passing day extending their effect onto the educational space. Since 92% of those who view digital videos are millennial’s, topics that were once seen as abstract and hard to grasp are now readily accessible and can be better understood with videos.
Various studies have indicated that explainer videos create room for better memory recall and efficient processing. The auditory and visual nature of videos allows individuals to naturally process information. The fact that explainer videos are processed through the pictorial/visual as well as verbal/auditory channels, makes them the best tools for learners to recall and memorize.

To enhance reception as well as processing, the four methods below are the best ways to go about designing as well as creating the perfect explainer videos:


Signaling: You can achieve this by deploying on-screen text. It captures the attention of the learner and emphasizes the information you want emphasized.
Segmenting: Divide information into adequately sized chunks, giving the learner additional control when processing it. which you can do through proper management of video duration, implementing pauses, or breakpoints, all through the video.
Weeding:  Get rid of any unwanted information within a video which may obstruct the ability of the learner to process as well as recall such information.
Matching Modality: Present information in a manner where it targets the visual and auditory channels at the same time. For instance, providing narration along with on-screen animation. This helps to improve processing within the functional memory as well as prevent any cognitive overload.

Features of Effective Educational Videos

When you develop an educational video keep in mind that you should be limited to three minutes or even less unless the amount of information is huge.
