2017 Learning In Practice, Innovation Award Winner
If a picture can convey a thousand words, imagine how much more a video can convey. Videos are fast becoming
a standard means of sharing knowledge and training information in organizations, but using them effectively
has a number of challenges. How can you ensure they’re searchable, archivable, and relevant for your audience?
How can you easily organize and manage these dynamic training assets, including user-generated content? And
once you’ve created videos, how can you drive traffic to your online video portal so this content is actually viewed by the people who need it?
In this case study session, you’ll learn how to solve these questions through the experiences Synaptics went through as it launched its own internal online video portal to improve knowledge-sharing within the company. You’ll look at the project requirements, timelines, key stakeholders, and metrics of success you’ll want to consider for launching an online video portal project. You’ll then explore various ways to drive traffic and adoption to your site, as well as best practices to ensure your program’s success. (Hint:Don’t do some of the things Synaptics did!)

» Best practices for launching your own online video portal
» How to design metrics of success for an online video portal project
» What the considerations and requirements for an online video portal project should be
