Why a Professional Voice-Over is Essential for Effective E-Learning

Would you like to add a voice-over to your e-learning project? VoiceProductions is the go-to company. E-learning has become a fixture in learning and development environments.

Over the past years, many professionals and students have become familiar with an online learning environment. And online learning will only increase in the years to come. Stand out amongst your competitors and have your e-learning courses recorded by a professional voice-over.

Investing in a voice-over for your e-learning projects absolutely pays off. A good voice-over lifts your e-training to a higher level. The right voice makes it so much easier for your audience to process the material and, thus, helps them remember the information that is given. People soon get bored or, even worse, get annoyed, lose their interest and quit the course if the voice-over doesn't sound right with your e-learning modules. That is why a good voice-over can make or break an effective e-learning programme. VoiceProductions helps you find the ideal voice-over actor for e-learnings who will record your material at the right tone of voice.

Why use a voice-over to enhance your e-learning?

E-learning is used for many different media and in all kinds of forms. But whatever medium you are using, a voice-over will make your e-learning environment a lot more personal. Listening to the content of your e-learning courses is much easier and more pleasant when they are recorded by the right voice. It certainly helps with processing and remembering the content and information.

This is why you need a voice-over for your e-learning projects:

●    Even though teaching methods have changed, the way people process information and learn has not. Whether learning material is offered in a classroom setting or online, people still learn best when other people are involved. The reason for this has to do with the so-called mirror neurons: the embedded mechanism that makes people copy what other people do or say. We can process and memorise information much better when these neurons are triggered. It is also exactly why a good teacher makes all the difference between an informative, educational lesson or a boring one. The same goes for the voice-overs used with e-learning. Recording a voice-over will make or break an e-learning course.

●    A voice-over helps reduce the cognitive load. The cognitive load increases when people need to read something while they also have to watch moving images. It makes the learning process less effective. Using a voice-over instead of written text supports the learning process.

●    A voice-over helps people remember information as an e-learning environment that includes a voice-over ensures that the information is processed by multiple senses. And when multiple senses are triggered, the information is much easier stored and retained. People remember more information when they hear and see it simultaneously. We tend to forget information much faster when we only listen or read.

Finding the perfect voice-over

In an e-learning environment, the voice-over assumes the role of trainer or coach who guides the participants through the e-learning modules. That is why it is paramount that your e-learning participants feel comfortable and a ‘click’ when they listen to the voice-over. So before you start, consider carefully who your target audience is. The professional voice-overs of VoiceProductions know exactly how to ‘tune in’ their voice to your target audience.

What are the benefits of e-learning?

●    Flexible learning: E-learning courses are available whenever and wherever you are. E-learning participants can choose where they learn, when they learn, and for how long they learn.

●    Saving time: Compared to learning in a traditional classroom environment, e-learning can take 40 to 60% less time as the participants are not hampered by the needs or questions of others. Another time-saving aspect is that people don’t have to travel.

●    Saving funds: Classroom environments require physical space. Organisations or institutions can save on rental costs by offering e-learning courses. Besides that, there are no travel costs involved for anyone.
