Videos are the most popular and effective form of media for online training. However, there are two major challenges when it comes to creating training videos: 1) Each viewer has a different previous level of knowledge and 2) Explaining all of the details your employees need to know often makes videos way too long. ThingLink provides a great way to embed all of the information that you need into a video that is short enough to hold your viewers attention while still making an impact.
