Professional & well thought out online training
The ej4 library uses videos and knowledge checks to present a thoughtful and professional approach to learning new material. The courses in ej4’s library are structured as a two-part course: The first part is a video and the second part is course material. The presenters are articulate subject matter experts who present the material with the on screen display. The objectives are clearly identified and the material flows in an orderly path. Word and text art are used effectively to highlight the key points that the speaker is making both in soft skills courses and compliance training. ej4’s library consists of 5-15 minute soft skill, safety, compliance and Microsoft Office training courses, with many courses presented in a series format. While the videos are relatively short, learners may tune out on occasion as there’s no little to no interactivity. Simply put, the presenter is recorded while a pre-animated presentation plays behind him/her in sync with the transcript. Well done, but not very engaging. The course material is structured in much of the same way with a brief test. The quizzes in each course cover main topic areas and provide instant scoring. Even though ej4’s courses use simple presentation designs, combining them with a video presenter makes their courses stand out from the rest. Some areas where ej4 could improve are: Introducing the speaker and clearly stating the course objectives at the beginning of the video to build the speaker’s credibility. Improving the course script to avoid flippant or trendy phrases such as ‘whatever’. Breaking the video up and presenting more knowledge checks along the way would also make courses more engaging.
