• For nearly three years, Snap Synapse has co-hosted a Video Friday livestream nearly every week (first on L&D Talk, then TLDChat, and now TLDCast). Each episode typically features a special guest with specific expertise in both Video Production AND Instructional Design. It's a casual and playful place for Training, Learning, & Development Professionals to come together and talk shop. If you're interested, you should drop on by on Friday at 8am Pacific!

No other part of the organization is more directly responsible for attracting & retaining the very people who make or break the success of the organization: the talent who cares enough to develop, to innovate, and to advance.

  • As President of Snap Synapse, I am often interviewed for podcasts, livestreams, and panels for the Learning & Development industry. Most of the time, I'm brought in for my Video eLearning expertise. So today I thought I'd share some of the most consistent and common advice that I share, in hopes that it will be of use to you in your L&D work. Why Video for eLearning? Video is just another delivery medium, nothing special.
