As eLearning has increasingly become a preferred method of corporate training, the quality of audio narration has become one, if not the primary, critical factor in the learner’s experience, engagement, and retention of material. No longer will it suffice for an audio narrator to simply read the information being visually presented (think of the dryness of online narration software); savvy learners now expect to be inspired, or at the least relatable. If not, the endless distraction of new emails, text messages, and the web will quickly divert learners’ attention and diminish returns for any organization.
However, finding the right voiceover read style and delivery, is easier said than done. How exactly should audio narration be combined with written content to optimize engagement and learning potential? And will this slow down development of the eLearning modules themselves, costing organizations precious time and dollars? Fortunately, there are some tips to get you started:
Good audio design and a great script go a long way for successful elearning projects.
