Less than a year ago I watched an interactive program intended to help people transitioning from military service into the civilian workforce. Since I've never served in the military, I was very intrigued by the veteran character, Michael, who played a role I was familiar with- a job seeker. His experience was frustrating at times because military organizations and civilian organizations don't do things exactly the same. I didn't really know the specific differences until I saw them illustrated for me. The steps of looking for employment- get the resume tuned up, increase networking, line up references, research and reach out to prospective employers, send out cover letters and resumes, research and prepare for interviews, conduct interviews, and so on- are done differently in the military. The impact of this difference never occurred to me until I saw how it changed Michael's job seeking experience.

BizLibrary, the leader in employee training and development solutions has announced WILL Interactive as a new content producer partner. The micro video-based content to be added to The BizLibrary Collection will initially include over 75 segments from WILL Interactive’s Cinar.io series.
Cinar.io videos are live-action, cinematic clips that can be incorporated into training programs across a wide range of industries. These videos cover topics in leadership, communication, workplace harassment, ethical decision-making, and many others.
Both linear and branching models are used within WILL’s interactive videos – linear scenarios run straight through to the conclusion, while branching scenarios allow the learner to make choices that affect the path of the scenario. This style of interactivity vastly increases engagement with the content and helps learners see how their actions affect outcomes. Once the learner has reached a conclusion, they also have the ability to return to the decision and see how a different choice would affect the outcome.
This micro video-based content from WILL Interactive will add a brand new style of interactivity to The BizLibrary Collection, giving training programs the ability to further engage employees and create the development and behavior change that organizations are seeking through online training.
