Combining LMS Portals with YouTube for Corporate eLearning

YouTube is a powerful video sharing service where users can watch, like, share, comment and upload their own videos. YouTube videos are accessible on PCs, laptops, tablets and via mobile phones. For corporate eLearning purposes, YouTube gives organizations the power to enhance their online training courses and activities by enhancing visual engagement and interactivity.

Utilizing YouTube for Corporate eLearning

Regardless of whether your company intends to produce its own eLearning videos or curate available online training content, YouTube provides an ideal platform to support your training objectives.

Some of the ways you might leverage YouTube for eLearning include:

Coaching Users through Complex Tasks

There are lots of videos on YouTube that can serve as tutorials for a variety of topics that can be beneficial to corporate eLearners. This use of these existing video resources can dramatically reduce your eLearning program costs and allow your learners to access the content they need right away. With the right LMS, you can simply embed these videos into your eLearning courses.

Compliance Awareness and Guidance

YouTube is already home to a variety of videos regarding compliance tips for such regulations as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, and others. Some video content may offer advice on how to prepare for a compliance audit, or how certain compliance rules particular impact job duties. You might also choose to produce your own compliance training videos using an eLearning authoring tool, and then upload the video to YouTube and embed the link into your eLearning content.

Product Knowledge and Demonstrations

Many employees utilize third-party products to perform their job duties.  Often, the vendors of these systems will have demonstration video content available on YouTube.  You might choose to build training courses for these applications around this existing content and include your own quizzes to test employee understanding and retention.
