David Patterson, of Learning Light.

Learning Light, a consultancy with an in-depth knowledge and experience of the e-learning marketplace and how to use e-learning materials to best advantage, has enhanced its e-learning video library with two ranges of video-based learning materials.

From el:talking, comes 20 scenario-based videos around the subject of ‘difficult conversations’ with employees. These cover informal performance discussions; managing change; managing difficult behaviour, and ‘more formal discussions’.

David Patterson, a director of Learning Light, commented: “These short videos are British-made and relate to the UK culture and workplace. With our “spring special introductory” license price from £695 for all 20 videos fully streamed directly into your company, these could form a cost-effective part of an in-house training department’s armoury.”

Learning Light is also making available several hundred mobile-friendly online learning videos from eJ4. Known as the ‘e-learning video campus’, these short videos cover a wide range of topics, notably focusing on increasing sales and improving performance (especially via supervisory skills).

Cloud-based and available on a 14-day free trial, the videos are priced on the basis of the number of learners involved and courses required. A three year licence for 100 users taking 25 courses could work out at under £30 per user per year.

“Topics from eJ4 include business grammar, communication styles, communications, customer service, health and wellness, key account selling, leadership, negotiating, presentation skills, professional productivity, retail excellence, selling skills and supervision skills,” said David Paterson. “There are also videos on IT skills including Windows7, Microsoft office 2010, Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2003.
“It’s interesting to see that recent research by Towards Maturity has noted a considerable increase in the number of organisations using e-learning video content from outside of their organisation,” Patterson commented.

He added: “According to their research - Towards Maturity, 2012-13 benchmark: Bridging the Gap, Integrating learning & work - 37% of organisations used video in this way in 2011; 42% in 2012; with a predicted rise to 65% in 2013”. Learning Light’s own research fully concurs with this, as do several thought leaders, including Elliot Masie.”

David Patterson continued: “We believe that Learning Light’s consultancy activities give it a unique position – and perspective – from which to access and evaluate an increasingly wide range of generic online learning content. In our view, the el:talking and eJ4 learning materials, along with the other learning materials that Learning Light recommends, are of a high quality and are ‘affordable’, representing value for money; they’re engaging for learners, and – importantly – effective.”

Demonstration versions of these learning materials are available on http://www.learninglight.com/elearningvideos
