Investing in my voice acting training and coaching was no doubt the best thing I did for myself and my voice acting career. I can’t imagine how much longer and frustrating the road would have been without my amazing coaches, mentors, and the classes I’ve taken along the way.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while and you like my style of sharing info, this is the page for you. You’ll find all my premium content just the way you’d expect it: no fluff, action-oriented, and step-by-step.
I’m an e-learning junky from way back before I was a full time professional voice talent so it’s a reflex to package all this knowledge and experience into online courses for you.
All my best on your voice acting journey!
E-learning has really come of age, thanks for the most part to the march of technology.
Voice overs for e-learning modules are being integrated more and more as e-learning professionals understand how they help the learning process.
Fast Internet connections and virtually unlimited storage capacity have now made it possible to create whole libraries of e-learning material and deliver them efficiently to students.
E-learning is now often used in organizations both as a supplement, and sometimes as an alternative to conventional teaching methods.
It allows them to quickly get staff up to speed with information about their products and services, internal culture, or anything else that they need to know.
There is a lot of information new staff needs to absorb when they begin with an organization, and also as they continue on their professional development journey, and the beauty of video or presentation-based training is that it is convenient, portable, and cost-effective.
Educational psychologists are constantly theorising, testing, and refining approaches to learning, but currently, narration for e-learning material usually sounds like one of these four examples:
No one approach is better or worse than another, but some will be more or less useful depending on the material being covered.
For instance, long passages on company policy might be better summarized, while short important phrases can be repeated verbatim.
Whatever is displayed on screen, learning is best helped when the narration is happening at the same time.
Research has showed that learners do better at retaining the information when this happens.
