Video and animation (sometimes called "rich media") can massively enhance the learner experience in almost any learning context. We can make it happen on any budget: the showreel below shows examples where budgets have ranged from "lavish" to "shoestring" and all points in between.
Scroll down the page to find longer-format videos which provide a more in-depth demonstration of our approach to video.
At Learn Interactive video production is in our DNA, drawing on experience gained at the BBC in London and from producing large volumes of original programming for the UK's leading business television network. See below for a showreel of recent work in the learning space.
Example #1: Georgetown course intro
An introduction to a Master's-level online course at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business
The Master's in Finance (MSF) qualification at Georgetown is a major initiative, drawing students from all around the world. The majority of the course is online and it was therefore a critical requirement to provide a video that helped remote students to feel connected to the Georgetown community—to really feel that they are part of the Georgetown "family" even though they're not on campus.
For this reason time and significant time and effort was invested in this introductory video.
Example #2: Expert interview
An expert interview, including supporting graphics.
Expert videos frequently form the backbone of our courses, and this is a typical example, It's notable for the sharpness of the picture, the moving (but subtle) digital background and the simple but effective supporting graphics.
This video was part of a major educational initiative on Bariatric Surgery, sponsored on the Open edX platform by Johnson & Johnson (Ethicon).
Example #3: Georgetown module intro
In addition to the full course intro (see example #1, above) each module of the MSF course at Georgetown was required to have an introductory video. This example comes from the Introduction to Corporate Finance. The lecturer (and star of the animation sequence) is Professor Allan Eberhart.
This video is notable for the way in which the subject (Professor Eberhart) is seamlessly integrated into the animation support, beginning at 1'40".
