BARRINGTON, Ill. - Dec. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- While classroom training can be effective for short-term learning of software, many learners do not remember their training when needed. This can be due to insufficient remembering, insufficient practice or lack of repetition (Five Failures of Workplace Learning, )1. SofTutor Author can mitigate these issues by allowing teachers and trainers to create, modify, and index video training they create or videos available on the Internet. With SofTutor for Snagit, learners can follow along in Snagit and learn by doing. Learners improve their long-term retention of the concepts because they get realistic practice with immediate feedback if their output does not resemble the output in the video. SofTutor for Snagit also gives learners spaced repetitions over time through its extensive index. Concepts and features can be quickly searched with learners watching the training when it is relevant to their work. Learn by doing and indexing can reduce the time it takes to learn by 50% or more.

Using Snagit training videos available from the TechSmith Website3, New Vision Software, Inc. (NVSI) created the free SofTutor for Snagit. Since the training videos already existed on a website, the SofTutor for Snagit 11 title was created in 2 hours by one person. It contains over 1 hour of video instruction covering 142 indexed topics and 22 lessons. Randy Hilgers stated, “It took more time to decide what should be in the index than it did to index.” Once indexed, titles can be used for collaboration, just-in-time learning, skill sharing, technical support, or video management.
