In contrast to peer training in real-life, training videos to be successful benefit from a certain level of standard and composition in order to reach their full potential.  

The thing with training videos is: you can’t see your audience, you can’t correct them on the spot, and you don’t know what they’ll do with the knowledge put forth. So, there are things to consider.   

Fortunately, others have made videos before you - here are 5 great examples to learn from of efficient training videos. Read on, watch, and get inspired.  

Types of Training Videos

Before we get deeper into training videos it’s important to know that there are usually 7 common types of training videos: 

  1. Corporate: training devoted to developing the skills of the employees
  2. Software screencast: a screen recording that shows how to use a particular software  
  3. Health and Safety: What to do in the event of an emergency 
  4. Workout: a coach that’s set up a digital training program that you can employ IRL 
  5. How-To Guides: videos for the DIY junkie to fix stuff at home, for the foodie who wants to make homemade pasta. How-tos are the most popular training videos  
  6. Sports coaching: virtual training sessions with a professional coach 
  7. Product: in-depth training that’s required before the use of a specialized product
