eLearning Development: 4 Tech Considerations When Using Videos

Upside Learning

Don’t double compress videos – use uncompressed or lossless formats when compressing to FLV format. Encoding videos to FLV. Before using videos in your Flash project, you would need to encode them in a format compatible with Adobe Flash (FLV or MPEG-4). To encode videos into FLV or MP4, the encoder software uses following codecs - H.264, On2 VP6 , and Sorenson Spark. These parameters can then be used to encode videos in target format i.e. FLV, MP4 or F4V.

Now videos can be part of all elearning content!

Adobe Captivate

This adds a new paradigm in content authoring. Previously you would have needed a professional video editing tool to synch the Captivate movie and the talking head video. Captivate also bundles the Adobe Media Encoder, allowing you to import video in any popular format, and the same is converted into FLV and placed on your slides. Captivate 5 gives you the option to either embed the video in the project, or to stream it from an external Flash streaming server of your choice.

E-learning Development: Selecting the Right Audio, Video, and Image Format

CommLab India

When developing an eLearning course using rapid authoring tools, you should know which format is supported by the tool to import audio files, videos, and images. If the tool does not support the image, video, or audio format you want to import, you will have to waste time converting them into the required format. Video (Ctrl+Alt+V) formats include SWF, FLV, F4V, AVI, MP4, MOV, and 3GP. Audio formats include AIFF, AU, M4A, MIDI, MP3, WAVE, WMA, ASF, and FLV.
