for the Web, VR, Mobile Apps and YouTube

Increase engagement and upskill your team

83% of people prefer instructional videos over training manuals according to research by TechSmith. However, a recent industry study by Kaltura revealed that 72% of employees still don’t give training videos their full attention

Interactive content is proven to be 81% more effective at keeping an audience’s attention (Qualifio).

Not only do interactive video experiences keep viewers engaged because they demand regular responses, but they also help keep the content relevant and personalised to the viewer, since they choose which direction the content is going.

How can I make learning / training videos with Stornaway?

Using Stornaway for Learning/Training videos

Stornaway is being used by companies like Johnson & Johnson, Diageo, Virgin Media (as well as 12000+ SME’s) for interactive and immersive training courses integrated with their LMS platforms like Canvas, Blackboard, Absorb, etc.

They’re adding Stornaway to their regular LMS offering because they need to personalise and gamify video experiences to keep trainees more immersed and engaged than passive video. Making active choices in real time in video keeps their brains switched on, boosts their learning retention – and is more enjoyable.

Our customers’ own content teams use the software to make all their own interactive content – which otherwise they would not have skills, time or budget to make. It has been specifically designed to be picked up in minutes by anyone who can make video.

For training, our specially designed player can be embedded on any LMS and we have an API for further integrations with your database.

You can use regular video, 360 video and stills – and also uniquely you can easily publish your experience to any other platform (with just a couple of clicks) – to VR, mobile app.

Upskill your team, collaborate and get started quickly

“From a project point of view, getting started was made easier by an intuitive environment. If I had to sum it up in one sentence, Stornaway has saved us a lot of time in many aspects without compromising on quality!” – Oliver Piasentin, Producer, Ikimasho

Stornaway was made to be completely user-friendly and intuitive. Anyone in any company can learn how to use the platform and create interactive videos within minutes. The collaboration feature lets you share privately with your team or supervisors for review and feedback.

And so – from initial planning through to publishing and updating your scenario-based training videos, the platform is controlled by you.

“It allows us to focus on the storytelling. We need all of our brainpower focused on creating flows that feel natural and engaging, not on juggling dozens of clips and hacking things together in editing software like Premiere.” –  Paul Mallaghan, Director of Creative Strategy and Content, Tilt.

Reuse videos again and again

“66% of Executives, L&D leaders, and Chief Learning Officers want to boost the number of employee-training hours” – McKinsey.

Create templates to reuse and adapt

Stornaway allows you to duplicate entire projects including user journeys and links – saving many hundreds of hours. This feature has been hugely useful to customers looking to make multiple versions of their projects. From versions with different subtitles or voiceovers, through different types of training videos to versions that have slight amendments for the new year

Ensuring that you can reuse and adapt both the content and the structures of your most engaging interactive scenario-based learning and training videos, will save valuable hours and allow you to create more interactive content more often and more affordably.

Deeper personalisation and greater connection

Clients tell us that they are looking for more than just a fun team-building activity or a boring PowerPoint-driven workshop. They want an interactive shared learning experience that demonstrates what is possible when people work together” – Ian Schubach, RedLeaf Virtual Adventures.

One of the key elements of creating engaging content is ensuring that it is relevant to the viewer. Interactive videos for e-learning and microlearning enable you to deeply personalise the viewer’s journey. Empower the viewer to specify and choose the path and information that is truly relevant to them. 

Audiences – whether those watching something for entertainment or learning – expect more and more personalisation these days. With so much data stored on each of us across every platform we use, there is an understanding that this will lead to a more personalised experience. When something seems not applicable to us, viewers are much more likely to stop watching or engaging. 

Stornaway has been created to allow you to fully plan and playtest all of the journeys and options that each user may face. When you can easily draw up those paths and connections, you can truly get into the shoes of the viewer and make a personalised journey.

Make edits and updates in real time

“When working on interactive conversations, it’s often a case of trial and error, piecing together a flow from lots of tiny snippets. Stornaway is an essential tool for allowing us to experiment, tweak, refine and rebuild quickly and easily.” – Paul Mallaghan, Director of Creative Strategy and Content, Tilt.

Making updates and edits exactly as and when you need them can be essential. Updates to information and training guides can mean that extra videos will need to be created or edits will be made to those that currently exist. Stornaway’s modular ‘story island’ system ensures that teams can make these changes quickly and easily. 

New exports of projects will retain the same URL so there is no need to update any embeds or links to the project – they update immediately along with the updated project as soon as you press export.
