Icareus Video Cloud helps you train and learn with the help of videos
Icareus Video Cloud is a cloud service that enables various educational organizations to enhance both teaching and learning results with the help of online videos.
In the Icareus Video Cloud, you produce, manage, and publish both internal and external training videos and events – without technical know-how – on/in your website, intranet and LMS learning environment. Video players, pages, virtual events and portals that match your brand guarantee a consistent user experience for viewers, so that your message gets across effectively, and with analytics you can monitor the level of engagement of the viewers.
The benefits of online video in training and teaching are many
Everyone is a visual learner, at least in the sense that our brain receives most of the information it processes through our eyes. Research shows that we learn even better when information is presented in a way that targets multiple senses. In addition to the image, the video usually contains sound and/or text, which helps to clarify and increase the amount of information conveyed. This makes it a particularly effective teaching tool.
Organizations have published results of how, by transferring their training to video online, they have obtained tens of percent cost savings and even hundreds of percent annual return on investment.
Participants do not have to travel, but are instead able to use their free time to their advantage. They also don’t have to attend at a certain time, but can study exactly when it suits them best.
Share your passion
With the help of videos and live streams, anyone in your organization can easily and widely share their expertise and position themselves and their organization at the top of the industry – seeing is believing!
A larger audience for an educational event
With online videos, you can reach more people than with events tied to a physical location.
Online video and online events have a significantly smaller carbon footprint than physical events.
Increase in brand value
With the help of live streams and online videos, it is easy to use the expertise found in your organization and thus increase the value of your brand, as video viewing is constantly increasing.
Microsoft calculated that in 3 years it achieved a 569% ROI and 13.9 M$ annual savings with its Microsoft Academy video portal.
