ExpectMore VideoIt’s no secret, that motion graphics have changed the face of training. With new technology, it is possible to add cutting-edge visuals and animation to training that can translate to better information retention, and shorter courses, while upgrading the user experience.

In 2014, we are looking forward to refining training innovations, such as the way we use motion graphics. At Training Magazine’s Training 2014 Conference & Expo, Allen’s motion graphic gurus Charles Plummer and Layne Haacke will be demonstrating:

  • How video motion graphics can be used to engage the audience
  • How to accentuate the storytelling opportunities video provides
  • When to replace duller, more tired visual training techniques with video animations
  • How to demonstrate complex concepts through video and 3D
  • Allen’s process for creating impactful motion pieces that drive learning engagement and performance
  • Real examples of award-winning motion training pieces and the strategy behind them

Join us on Monday, Feb. 3, at 10:45 a.m. PST in San Diego, Calif., for the presentation. Unable to attend? Return to this page after the conference to see a breakdown of the presentation and guidelines for how to increase the effectiveness of your training projects.
