Today’s workforce requires an emotional connection and a sense of purpose that traditional corporate communications and trainings haven’t been able to achieve. We know meeting this need within your budget and using the resources at hand is not always easy, and it certainly requires new thinking and new technology.
Many organizations are looking to video as a powerful tool to address this challenge, but video alone is not enough to move the needle—you must rethink your video strategy. Our VP of Product, Caleb Hanson, addressed this very issue in two recent webinars.
According to Hanson, “Control + ALT + Delete” isn’t just the PC shortcut to reboot, it’s also a good mnemonic device for three important points about user-centric interactive video. Below, we’ll explain how you can use the concept of “Control + Alt + Delete” to reboot your video strategy with interactive content.
