e-Learning Narration – In the Beginning:
Computer-Based Training (CBT) emerged in the 1960s as a versatile, effective and time-efficient/cost-efficient teaching method that eventually replaced traditional correspondence courses and in-class teaching and training.
In 1999 the term electronic learning (e-learning) became the new name that we use to this day. Studies show that voiceover accompanying the written word greatly enhances the learning experience and overall comprehension and retention for those taking the course. However, the voice talent you select to teach for eLearning must know how learning itself is accomplished and how to relate one-on-one with the learner.
eLearning – The Current Landscape:
With a world upended due to the COVID pandemic, the need for people to adjust their lifestyles and routines was drastic but necessary. A massive component of this tectonic shift created the need for many to work and learn from home. Companies worldwide scrambled to procure, assign, create, produce and distribute e-Learning courses in thousands of specialties and subject matter. Hundreds of millions of people internationally require educational, instructional content for virtually every field imaginable. A major piece of your e-learning puzzle is finding the right eLearning voiceovers.
Your e-Learning Voice Talent Must Know How to BE a teacher!
If the eLearning narration comes across as disinterested, dry or obviously read from a script, the quality of learning will be compromised. Your vocal instructor must be a skilled voice over talent and understand how to convey the material AND connect to the learner, being familiar with pronunciations, terminology, slang, acronyms, etc. within the content and be able to deliver a comfortably professional and encouraging vocal tone, as if seated with the student while guiding them through the lesson.
A Certain Amount of Passion for the Subject Must Come Through
If you want your students to be excited about the topic or lecture the eLearning narration must convey this in tone, pacing and overall delivery. Whatever the e-learning subject, from medical, pharmaceutical and scientific tutorials to accounting, design or the hospitality industry, learning should be engaging! Our e-learning voice over talents’ expertise ensures that it is.
