Video for Learning LAB & Seminar

Dear Learning & Training Colleague:

You and your colleagues are cordially invited to participate in our latest seminar at The MASIE Center:


Led by Elliott Masie
April 2-4, 2012: Saratoga Springs, New York


Video is the most rapidly changing content format in workforce learning.  On Demand, User Created, Live Video Chat and Video Enriched Webinars are all growing in importance. 

Our Video for Learning LAB & Seminar provides a unique, hands-on, vendor-neutral drill-down on these formats for content, context, support, collaboration and community:

  • Video Stories (YouTube-like short knowledge segments from the field)
  • Video Content (Rapid development of video based learning modules)
  • Video in the Classroom (Expertise in the classroom:  Leaders, Peers or Learners)
  • Video Chats & Conferences (Connected the Distributed Workforce & Workplace)
  • Video Performance Support (Learning at the Moment of Need or Change)
  • Video for Business Processes (eg. Orientation, Hiring, Customer Support)
  • Video Coaching (Short, Nano-Mentoring Processes)
  • Video LearningMix (Blending Video with eLearning & Classroom)

apolopadVideo for Learning is a rapidly changing field.  The technology is becoming faster, cheaper and more widely used at home.  $12,000 cameras are being replaced with iPhone video.  Plasma screens are dropping to $600.  And, people are increasingly wanting short, expertise filled, video (live or on-demand) that will support their learning on a topic.  Yet, corporate legal and IT folks are raising some key issues.

Our Video for Learning event is a Project Based, Hands-On seminar and lab.  You will work on a series of projects, with fellow participants, leveraging On-Demand Video and Live Video, to explore the use of video in a learning event.  For example, we will redesign how Acme Corporation will conduct New Hire Orientation or Leadership Development, using video as a core component.   In addition, each participant will develop their own video for learning projects while in the LAB.

I will be joined by a range of faculty and resource experts during the LAB segment of this event as well as during the follow-up project and online component. You will have access to experienced videographers, instructional designers and learning managers as we experience and explore every aspect of Video in Learning.

multiscreensEach participant will work with a wide range of video formats, technologies and systems while at The MASIE Center. Each participant will also receive (and keep) an HD compact video camera to use as you continue your use of Video for Learning after the event.

 I look forward to working with you on this project. If you have any questions, please send a note to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
