Why use subtitling in education?
E-learning is a popular way of learning for students today. Video has proven to be a very relevant educational medium, especially during the health crisis. However, whether you are a trainer or a teacher in a school, you may still have doubts about the use of subtitling in education. You shouldn’t be, it’s a real educational tool! Videomenthe analyses for you the advantages of including text under each of your multimedia contents.
Grabbing learners’ attention
If you come from an educational background, you know that it’s easy to lose interest when listening to a lecture. By engaging your learner in active participation in the classroom, you are definitely improving their learning.
The question is how to remain impactful, even when you don’t have your students face to face. And that’s where subtitling can be a great help when it comes to education.
We’ve already talked about this in an article about video editing and translation in universities and education more generally. Text helps to sustain the concentration of those trying to follow your educational video. So don’t take it away from them!
Strengthening information processing
Some of your students retain what they see. For others, memorization is primarily a visual story. But the fact remains that a student’s memory is subject to a significant cognitive load when learning online.
Reading as an aid to understanding
The educational caption helps to reduce the mental load involved in integrating new concepts. It fully enhances your listeners’ ability to understand and remember.
In this respect, the use of text speeds up the learning of a new language, for example.
In addition, there are easy-to-use automatic subtitling software packages available today. Take our online platform EoleCC. It is intuitive and user-friendly. So it’s easy to use. So who can beat that?
