Working with Adobe Premiere has been an eye opening experience for me when it comes to learning how to incorporate video-based media. Like most of the Adobe software I’ve worked with, there is a pretty high learning curve and it can be easy to be overwhelmed at times. Once you get the hang of it though Premiere can be very useful and dare I say even a bit fun to work with. The editing process can take up the majority of your time but it can also be where you turn a plane video in to an eye-catching one.
Overall, the use of video media does seem to benefit my instructional design as a whole. As a visual learner myself I love video-based instruction and is something I think future generations will continue to gravitate towards as appose to conventional text-based instruction. This isn’t to say traditional methods are not needed but the combination of video media to instructions will most likely be a trend that will continue to grow. In my opinion video media is the closest thing to hands-on training a distance learner can get. The content itself is more time consuming and challenging to create for the instructor but ultimately can make the biggest impact on learners ability to learn.
