In an initial consultation meeting, we define the exact needs of the client and the desired learning outcomes of the learning videos. Based on that, we recommend a specific course of action for the project.
Then we work with the client to define the scope of the project. That includes coming up with a detailed video curriculum or lesson plan. We define the overall structure of the lesson plan as well as the topic of each learning video.
2. Knowledge base
Once the plan is set, it’s time to create the knowledge base for the course. That means gathering all the information that would need to be conveyed in the course videos. The client can provide their own knowledge base, or the SLX Research team can gather all the necessary data. For each learning video, we build a document containing all the relevant information and their research sources, so every piece of information can be vetted and fact checked.
The research team then presents the knowledge base to the production team in a workshop environment, where the structure and story flow of the script is established. The production team applies their storytelling techniques to arrange the information into an engaging structure, while the research team ensures the educational value of the information is preserved.
Once the structure and story-flow of a video is defined, it is written into a script that will act as the basis of the video. A thorough review and iteration process with the client ensures that the script is perfectly tuned before going into video production.
4. Video Production
The video production process varies drastically depending on the format. Lecture recording, whether on location or in a studio, is done by a small team of professionals that support the teacher throughout the process.
Animated courses initially go through a phase where the look and feel of the course series is established with the client. The visualizations are presented to the client through a storyboard that shows how the script will be represented. Once approved, the storyboard is then turned into a fully animated course with professional voice over.
5. Review & Revision
Once the learning video is complete, it’s reviewed by the client, and any requested changes are made.
