Who Provides e-Learning Voiceover For Videos and Courses?
With so much online learning content out there, who exactly is narrating them? Is there one individual out there that possesses a wealth of knowledge about a wide range of topics and narrates videos accordingly?
The answer to this question, of course, is no. Behind every e-Learning experience, there is not one creative but an entire production team. That team could include a scriptwriter, a video editor, an animator, a researcher, and more.
Resist The DIY Urge
It may be tempting to hand the task of voiceover acting over to the person on your team who has the “best talking voice,” however, it’s essential that you resist the temptation. While many people certainly have a talent for vocal inflictions, the process of voice acting is a skill that must be honed. Hiring a professional voiceover talent for your e-learning course will bring it to a whole new level of professionalism that your viewers are sure to notice.
Viewers can direct themselves through informational courses with well-designed video series, including a voiceover from Maria. e-learning offers flexibility and empowers viewers to educate themselves on their own time. These explainer videos can include animation, stock footage, text, and graphics.
The Right Voice Over To Educate And Inspire
So how do you go about hiring a narrator for an online course? You will want to find an actor with an engaging voice. You will also want to ensure that they have the right voice to suit your particular project. It doesn’t necessarily matter whether or not the voiceover artist has existing knowledge of a subject. Part of a voice actor’s talent is that they can sound compelling.
It may also prove worth your while to hire a female voiceover actor. While voice acting was once the domain of male voices, female voices have grown in popularity. Studies show that audiences appear to receive them more favorably.
