Why enterprise LD needs kPoint

27 May 2013

ASTD (American Society for Training and Development) quotes a 2013 L&D Technology report by the Impact Instruction Group to emphasize the paradigm shift to innovative ways of delivering learning. 56% of the respondents to their survey plan to invest in video-learning in the coming months.
Enterprises are already adopting video-learning as a formal part of their L&D strategy.
Delivering video-learning effectively requires

• Rapid multimedia content creation
• Personalized and interactive content for effective learning
• Indexing and cataloging to formalize content as L&D assets
• Efficient enterprise-wide distribution with access control
• Tracking and analytics for assessment
• Integration with existing L&D systems and processes

Most enterprise L&D departments have many existing solutions, none of which unfortunately meet the above requirements for video-learning. Typically, these solutions have the following drawbacks:

Video Streaming Solutions: Live video streaming solutions are usually ineffective in delivering learning content alongside video, and cannot be easily integrated into the enterprise L&D processes and systems.

Video Conferencing Solutions: These solutions are restricted to live interactions. Even if they provide session recordings, they are in a proprietary format which is usually monolithic video with no navigation aids or content search. They are ineffective for learning delivery.
E-learning Solutions: Traditional e-learning courses are impersonal and do not engage the learner. Multimedia e-learning courses are expensive and time-consuming to create.

Knowledge Management Solutions and LMS: These can only be used as a knowledge repository, with no support for content creation or interactivity.

kPoint addresses these challenges by offering an innovative platform for video-learning in enterprises. L& D departments across our customers are successfully using kPoint for

Instant creation and sharing of multimedia content: Simulating a live training environment for SMEs, trainers and content creators, kPoint makes it easy to create multimedia mashups from everyday interactions. It automatically captures voice, slides, desktop share, multimedia and whiteboards as synchronized, hi-fidelity kapsules. There are zero editing or post-processing efforts before you can share the content across your organization.

Automatic indexing, search and visualmarks within video content: kPoint automatically indexes the content used in the kapsule, making it easy to search, find and consume. Your learning videos are no longer monolithic; the content within is fully searchable and easy to navigate with kapsule visualmarks.

Interactivity: kPoint kapsules have a number of cool features that make them highly interactive and engaging. Bookmarks, queries to experts, comments, tags, snippets to share highlights of the kapsule – all of these enhance the trainee’s experience and improves retention in courses. It also provides for a more collaborative experience, which has been proven to be essential for effective learning.

Personalized learning delivery: Since kPoint kapsules can be recorded by your own SMEs and trainers, the content delivery is backed by solid reputation and expertise within your enterprise. The personalized delivery of content using presenter video in kapsules, makes it even more effective.
