Video is how people like to learn today. And Vyond is an animation and video-making tool that can help you create the modern animated videos that your learners crave.

Whether you need

  • whiteboard animated drawings to illustrate concepts,
  • animated characters to illustrate people skills, or
  • business scenes and charts to convey content,

Vyond has it all.

Vyond (formerly GoAnimate) lets you create clear, effective videos that can stand alone—or you can embed Vyond videos in your eLearning lessons in Adobe Presenter, Articulate Storyline, or Adobe Captivate.

In this hands-on, live, instructor-led class, you’ll learn how to choose an appropriate Vyond animation style for the genre of eLearning you are creating. Then you’ll learn how to use Vyond Studio to create your video from the ground up. You’ll create backgrounds, props, and animated characters to bring your story to life. You’ll also record audio narration in your own voice. 

You can use Vyond videos to:

  • Introduce a lesson
  • Have an animated character act as teacher or guide
  • Illustrate concepts or processes
  • Vividly illustrate data

Got fully designed and branded PowerPoint slides? You’ll learn how to bring those to life by adding an animated character to act as the presenter.

Want to create those whiteboard animations you see everywhere? You’ll learn how to make that mysteriously moving hand do your bidding.

You’ll learn how to use TTS (text-to-speech) technology to add audio, and you’ll learn how to import professionally recorded voiceover. And, you’ll learn how to make an animated character lip-sync with the voice!

Once your video is done, you could simply upload it to YouTube. But wait. You need interactivity, and you are required to create a quiz and report results? No problem! Bring your Vyond video into your eLearning development tool of choice. Add your quiz, create your SCORM-compliant package, and you have fully functioning eLearning.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is for anyone tasked with creating video for an an eLearning course—including Project managers, developers, instructional designers, or others who need to develop for eLearning. Whether you have a course currently in the works, or you just want to be prepared in time for your next project, this course is for you.

Where is this class held?

You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers!
