A Voiceover Artist and Professional Instructor
In 1999 the term eLearning was first used in a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy seminar. The definition of eLearning—the use of the Internet and other digital technologies to educate people without geographical boundaries—only appeared as recently as 2001. A scientist, educator, business man and voiceover artist, Howard Unger has been in the first wave of early adopters and has the knowledge and experience to elevate your eLearning material and increase engagement and retention.
Asynchronous eLearning Teaching
eLearning can be loosely divided into two major arms: synchronous and asynchronous eLearning. The former takes place in real time and is more of a virtual classroom in which learners and instructors interact. Asynchronous eLearning more closely resembles a pause-and-play type learning, and happens at the learner’s convenience. There is no real time interaction with the teacher and it is thus heavily reliant on engaging and retaining the learner’s attention and maximising their retention. As a voiceover professional who not only commands a rich, deep, reassuring voice, but also brings years of experience as an educator, lecturer, instructor and educational course designer, Howard Unger is the premiere male eLearning voice.
Maximising the Learning Benefits of eLearning
Since 1999 the growth of eLearning has been exponential. An increasing reliance on tech, and diminishing costs of production have contributed to the eLearning upsurge. Other contributing factors to its growth include how eLearning accommodates the needs of the learner, particularly in relation to timing.
Content can be viewed multiple times and new content uploaded whenever applicable. Lessons begin quickly and can be completed within one session, thereby reducing the time commitment on the part of the learner.
It further enables the content creator to roll out programs within a few weeks, sometimes even days. eLearning is also scalable and the message remains consistent.
The effectiveness of eLearning has been proven in terms of improved scores and results, a higher number of students who master the courses, enhanced ability to learn and implement new processes or knowledge, and greater information retention. The applications for eLearning are many and growing daily.
