Video is BIG in L&D.

But I don’t have to tell YOU that.

All you have to do is think about the last time you visited YouTube and you’ll realize how engaging and effective video content can be when done well.

Or how ineffective it can be when done poorly.

Specifically, I’m talking about poor audio quality.

Knowing how effective video can be for training, I wanted to discuss how you can get started taking steps to improve your audio quality.

With how great cameras are getting on phones these days, in my opinion, audio quality is the low-hanging fruit when it comes to improving the effectiveness of your training videos.

Things covered include:

  • A short rant about audio in videos
  • Camera Audio
  • Mic Solutions – Upsides and Downsides
    • Lav mics
    • Shotgun mics
  • Recording Solutions
