Videos can support knowledge transfer by providing training and instructional technical assistance, recording webinars and events, and building awareness of model or innovation practices and documenting accomplishments. Project films can visually illustrate complex topics and clarify messages where terminology can be difficult to grasp for viewers unfamiliar with the material. Films can translate issues into compelling stories to support training and education. Videos may describe how a job or task is done for employees new to a position, or can introduce an innovative practice for multiple employees in various locations. Videos can be reposed online for access when needed.
