6. Talking Head Videos (Lectures)
Talking head videos are used to train individuals directly from the expert. The person delivering the material gets in front of the camera and recites the tips and learning material to the audience.
This is the type of video you typically see on YouTube. The key component of this video format is extracting the expertise of the trainer in an easy-to-understand manner.
The challenge with this is that it’s not so captivating for the user. Think about how most college students perceive lectures from their professors. It’s not typically something they look forward to.
To combat this, you can always opt to add demonstrations, b-roll footage, charts, and other creative support materials to the video editing process before you upload.
If you regularly browse YouTube, you can find many examples of this type of video. The key is to make it entertaining for the viewers.
