It takes two to tango!

The live roleplay scenario is a staple of the in-person training world. But when it comes to eLearning, the closest you can probably get is to have two voices acting out a conversation or scenario as part of your narration.

Whenever you have multiple actors, a whole new set of issues can show up. Problems with mismatched volume, echo, and weird sounding conversations.

Next time you plan to have two or more people in a conversation for one of your eLearning modules, here are a few things to consider before you hit record.

Hopefully, they can save you some time in the recording sessions or in the editing process.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Working with two talents recording at the same time
  • Working with two talents recording at different times
  • The Cardioid Pickup Pattern
  • A new definition for the word “distracting”
  • The Sympathy Chuckle
