Recording a video narration is another great opportunity to engage people by personalizing the course/lecture. Information received from this particular person on the screen seems to be more reliable and persuasive than information presented by a vague person staying behind the scenes.
Moreover, video narrated courses stimulate knowledge retention not only through the flow of information but also through visual means like gestures, facial expressions, appearance and the voice of the presenter.
Video narrations can also be synchronized with slides and even animations. Video modes can be switched easily allowing you to keep a small video in the corner, emphasize to half of the player or have it take up most of the screen.
