Video Practice:
Immersive Capability Building

Create scenarios and have learners record themselves or their screens to practice presenting, working with others, overcoming sales objections, delivering a pitch, or anything else where learning needs to be felt and experienced.

Immediately apply concepts, get feedback, give feedback, and build both comfort and skills mastery with video practice

Integrate peer learning, coaching, and manager feedback via customizable video-based assignments and submission galleries that can be permissioned for social learning, expert feedback, or both.

“Video Practice promotes ongoing sharpening of skills to establish confidence and efficacy. It provides a strong place of proof for learning outcomes, which is often a missing component of corporate learning experiences.”
– Farnaz Ronaghi, NovoEd Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer

Directed performance support that integrates
simulation-based training with peer feedback.

Beyond their own Video Practice assignments, learners can continue their
immersive experience by exploring others’ work, viewing exemplary
prior submissions, giving and responding to text and video feedback,
and re-practicing to successfully build capabilities such as effective
and efficient employee onboarding, leadership development,
sales training and enablement, and customer service skillbuilding. 

Key Features

“Using NovoEd, we can now extend the training experience over multiple weeks allowing participants to learn in the flow of work while demonstrating proficiency on specific topics week after week. This shifts our training programs from event-based to an experience-based approach where participants can immediately apply what they learned, often the same day they learned it.”

G2 Five-Star Review

NovoEd Video Practice empowers organizations to:

Master real world performance – without the risk 

Video practice provides learners a safe space in which they can learn from their mistakes before making them in the real world at significant cost. This type of active, scenario-based training is particularly effective for use cases like sales training. Practice scenarios with prompts intended to mimic a real-life selling situation – like an abbreviated sales pitch – can be integrated into the flow of a greater learner experience or exist in the form of a “practice room” outside of the learning experience. Learners then review scenarios, which can be delivered via video or text, and respond with their own video recording. 

Leverage social learning to accelerate capability-building

Upon submitting their video response, a learner can then review and repeat their practice and also receive feedback from their peers that is timestamped to the relevant moments of the video. This socially situates what would otherwise be a solo exercise and supports learners in developing greater understanding and awareness of their own thought processes relative to those of their team members.

Build muscle memory around critical business scenarios

Within the feature’s practice room, users will encounter a rich set of feedback and social capabilities. Feedback may be left as either text or recorded video, and people may be invited to share their thoughts or give feedback using at-mentions, or lighter reassurances can be offered in the form of giving a “like.” 

With feedback in hand, learners are able to re-practice their response to the scenario on an ongoing basis – improving not only their ability to handle this specific situation, but also building underlying skills to help them succeed-long term. 

Reinforce target outcomes with featured submission gallery  

Course administrators and instructors can feature multiple practice videos in a video gallery, so that learners can not only reflect on feedback around their video but also provide and observe feedback around others’ videos. It is this multidimensional, metacognitive approach that supports organizations in driving talent attraction and retention and creating a better employee experience — helping to meet major concerns for businesses today.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is video practice?

Video practice involves using video recordings as a tool for learners to engage in training and reflect on their skills, knowledge, and behaviors. It allows learners to record themselves, review the recordings, and gain insights and feedback on their performance. By creating real-life scenarios, learners can exercise and improve their presentation, sales pitching, and collaboration skills.

How does video practice work?

It utilizes scenario-based training, and learners can record videos based on specific prompts or assignments, submit them for evaluation or peer feedback, and engage in self-reflection. Then, they receive feedback from instructors, peers, or subject-matter experts, fostering learning, skill development, and self-awareness.

What are the benefits of using video practice in a learning environment?

It enables learners to practice in a safe and controlled environment where learners can learn from mistakes. Since these scenarios stimulate real-world pressure, learners can apply concepts, establish confidence, and hone skills in real time. Moreover, video practice provides peer learning and feedback, reinforcement training by watching and giving feedback to others' videos, and the ability to revisit and analyze performances for continuous improvement.

What kind of feedback can learners receive through video practice?

Learners can receive various types of feedback through video practice, including written comments, audio feedback, or video feedback from instructors, peers, or subject-matter experts. This feedback can be time-stamped to relevant sections in the video providing specific insights into strengths, improvement areas, and specific skill development recommendations.
