Creating courses with Total Recall

Total Recall can work with any type of video content – if that content has been produced with Total Recall in mind. 

For existing video content, we can support you to assess its suitability for a Total Recall course. 

Some video content naturally lends itself to a Total Recall application e.g. shorter videos or 3 minutes or less, summary videos, training videos, process and procedure videos. 

Drama scenarios can also be used with Total Recall. It is trickier because a lot of the learning in a drama scenario is in the sub-text as well as the dialogue. However, by using summary video content that encapsulates the key learning points from a drama, you can have the best of both worlds and engage learners with compelling drama content followed by the interactive Total Recall experience.

Yes. The AI tool behind Total Recall is Wildfire. Wildfire has been designed to work with transcripts from any content – Word documents, PDFs, audio recordings.

It really does depend on the type of video content and how it has been designed, but generally we would recommend no more than 3 minutes.

Chunking is a technique we use with Total Recall which involves breaking a video down into bite-sized chunks and serving each chunk separately with its own set of questions. 

Chunking is an established principle in learning. It makes the learning experience more manageable and avoids cognitive overload.

If submitting existing video content for Total Recall, you can submit an MP4 or a URL link to a video.

If we are creating bespoke video content for your Total Recall course, the first stage is to design and produce the content. The stages of video production are:

Pre-production: When we design your course and your videos, and make logisitical arrangements for the video shoot.

Production: When we film the video content.

Post-production: When we edit and refine the content.

Then the next part of the process is to run the videos through the AI tool which will semantically read and interpret the transcript and the create the interactive learning element.

The key dependency in terms of how long it takes is the video content; whether you would want to create a course from exiting content or new content, and what that new content consists of if we are starting from scratch. 

The short answer is anything between one week and 12 weeks. 

We can provide draft project schedules once we have discussed your specific brief.

Functionality of Total Recall

Yes, we use SCORM 2014 to send data to your LMS.

Courses questions can be edited. Whether you spot a mistake, or if a particular detail changes over time, we can amend the copy in the course. 

Video can also be re-edited, within the realms of what is practically possible. E.g. you can cut video out, or add new content in, or amend a graphic. 

The process of changing a course will have time and therefore cost implications that can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. 

General Questions

Once the video content is produced, we can create a course within a couple of days.

For more detailed about timings for your specific brief, contact us.

Total Recall is generally less expensive than traditional e-learning because of the speed and efficiency of production. 

The AI automates the production of the course content which saves time and therefore budget. 

Total Recall is easy to adopt because it is quick and easy to produce. It is nimble and can sit within your current learning ecosystem (using SCORM) or you can stream it from the Wildfire (AI tool) servers. The user-experience is clear and simple and because of the combination of video and an active learning experience, it is engaging.

Yes. SCORM 2014.

You can create a Total Recall course with existing video content or with new video content. If you want to use existing video content we will review the assets with you to ensure we maximise the usefulness of the content in a Total Recall context. This will include considering what your learners ‘need to know’ and where we can use techniques like chunking to boost the effectiveness of the course.
