How FAQ Videos Benefit Students and Parents

How FAQ Videos Benefit Students and Parents

Summertime… it’s that time of the year when students can finally catch a break. However, for administrators, educators, and instructional coaches, it’s time to gear up and prepare for the upcoming school year. As that first day of school creeps up, it’s typical for students and their families to flood your inbox with questions. Even if you have an FAQ page listed on your school site, it may be hard for students and parents to find. The best way to prepare your student body and their families for the upcoming school year is to distribute school FAQ videos that can be easily accessible to everyone.

Why Film FAQs?

Studies have shown that viewing videos is much more engaging and effective than solely reading something yourself. In fact, Insivia reports that viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text. Plus, video allows you to control the tone of the message, add visual aids, and capture the audience’s full attention. Because video feels more personal to the viewer, filming FAQ videos is an extremely simple way to introduce the staff and culture of your school in just a couple of minutes. Utilizing video allows your message to be clear, concise, and well-received.

Viewers Retain 95% of a Message Via Video

It’s time to take full advantage of the power of video! When you partner with CIESC Media Services, the options are endless. We can film and produce a clear, concise FAQ video for essentially anything you need. Whether it’s walking the audience through a step-by-step guide on how to choose your classes, register for a sport or club, or sign up for a free and reduced lunch program, we can ensure a high-quality video that clearly delivers your message.

Video Accommodates a Variety of Needs

With instructional videos, our team has found providing visual aids to be the most effective. We can easily create comprehensive clips of your site to familiarize the viewers as they learn a specific process. FAQ videos can also accommodate students and families who speak different languages and prefer or need a translation. Particularly, animated videos are easy to convert to other languages and have a longer shelf life, which provides a better return on your investment with Media Services.
