Capture subject matter expertise with video interviews

How can you get knowledge to the people that need it most, quickly? Use the template below to help subject matter experts share concise, helpful videos from their phones.

With home-working, travel restrictions and lock-down policies in place, traditional video shoots are difficult or impossible to implement right now.

As organisations rush to support their front line and remote teams with digital resources and learning programmes, it’s important to rethink our usual methods. For example, could your SME simply record a quick video on their phone to upskill colleagues or provide content for a digital programme? If you provide an interview framework and ask the right questions, they’ll cover all of the salient points and examples. It may not have the gloss and polish of a corporate shoot but is it fit-for-purpose?

To help in a small way, we’ve created three new StoryTagger templates to make it easier for you to share crisis update videos with your teams, support your remote workers and in this case, get subject matter expertise to the people who need it most.

What do your people need to know, now?

Now more than ever, we need agile, effective ways to share vital expertise with people that need it. Use the template below to capture ready-to-use educational videos or source SME knowledge to be part of a blended or digital learning programme. If you’re already using StoryTagger, the set-up is simple; select from our list of templates and distribute to your subject matter experts for easy, guided self-filming.
