Whiteboard video is being widely used to meet different communication purposes. Research shows that whiteboard video dramatically improves learning. They engage, educate and entertain all at once. How? Before we know it, let us understand how people try to understand the complex concepts when learning for the first time and what are the best tools to help in making the process of learning, effective.
The Mental Tendency When Learning Complex Concepts
Most new concepts are extensions or variations of existing concepts. When learning a complex concept for the first time, we tend to create a mental association with the concepts that we know for a long time. This tendency of co-relating existing concepts with the one being learned, helps us absorb and consolidate the new information into our memories, in a faster and better way.
Tools that best assist in explaining a Complex Concept
Understanding complex concepts often requires us to have some ideas in mind. The visual representation (charts / graphs / images) help in doing it. Remember how we were taught 'resistance' in science class? We still remember representing 'resistance' with wavy lines that are meant to show the 'nuisance'. don't we? Using the method of visual representation, a complex concept can be summarized into understandable representation, which makes it easier to relate to concepts and remember them.
How Whiteboard Animation Technique uses this tool to enhance the learning process
Whiteboard Animation Technique gives the opportunity to build for your target group, a dynamic visual representation (motion graphics). Needless to mention, it is a more powerful communication tool than a static visual representation (still diagrams/images) since essentially, it is a video. And all of us are used to watching videos (on TV, in Theatres) with great willingness and total involvement. Video watching equates entertainment.
