Personnel Today reviews the Video Arts e-learning course BEHAVIOURAL INTERVIEWING
This two-hour course has a modular structure that can be split into micro-learning chunks. It features a menu of introductory materials that gave me the confidence to get started, offered a trailer to set the scene and set me a pre-test. I was impressed by the pre-test, which established my current knowledge levels, before suggesting modules where I should brush up my skills.
The materials are accessible and the test format is easy to follow: answers can be indicated by either the click and drag method or by ticking boxes. Each answer receives immediate feedback from ‘well done’ to ‘not quite’, but nothing more specific.
Memorable video clips support the course, which is interspersed with thought-provoking questions to ensure the user is learning and being challenged. It included tracking and support tools to enable me to chart my progress and plan future learning. I enjoyed the film footage of James Nesbit and one of my favourite character actors, Kris Marshall.
The Video Arts interactive self-study courses library includes classics such ‘Meetings, bloody meetings’ and ‘If looks could kill’, and new additions ‘Pass it on: coaching skills for managers’ and ‘The art of selling’.
The experience is intense, but thorough, and both user and purchaser can feel confident that the subject will be covered thoroughly.
