  • What are the advantages of simpleshow interactive
    simpleshow interactive is a tool for video-based online learning. Compared to other formats, this dramatically increases the target group's motivation for engaging with the learning content. Not only that, learners can easily review information they have not yet understood and decide for themselves when to do their training sessions. The learning material is communicated more playfully and it is easy to test learners' progress.
  • Who can benefit most from simpleshow interactive
    simpleshow interactive is particularly useful for medium-sized to larger companies, since the more employees need to be trained, the greater the cost advantages of video coaching. Videos are an especially attractive option for companies operating in a number of locations.
  • Which departments can implement simpleshow interactive
    Video tutorials are often used when launching a new product or service, training sales staff, instructing employees on topics such as security or data privacy, or announcing organisational changes, to name a few examples.
  • How is learning tested
    After the material has been covered, the learner is tested via multiple-choice questions. Employee can then demonstrate their successful participation by printing out an online certificate, for instance.

  • Why do explanatory videos work
    People take in information using different senses at the same time: whether we enjoy the flavour of a meal is for example determined by the combination of taste and smell. Comprehension also works best when a message addresses several senses simultaneously. When watching an explainer video, we take in information through acoustic and visual stimuli at the same time. simpleshow coordinates these stimuli perfectly. Because our brain processes them in different areas, we retain the information more reliably, making understanding and remembering almost automatic. A perfect text-image concept is a sort of neurological superglue. Another success factor is the storytelling. People love stories: they create a personal dimension, activate and motivate viewers to watch closely. And that boosts the learning effect. So it’s no wonder that explainer videos are so successful.

  • What defines simpleshow classic
    Anyone can cut out paper drawings and push them around on a table with two hands. What simpleshow classic can do is distil an easily understandable explanation from a complex topic – using the simplest of means. Black-and-white illustrations, voiceover, music and sound design are perfectly coordinated and achieve significant learning success. Scientific surveys and a vast number of recommendations from satisfied customers prove the success of our globally established standard format.
  • Why do I need that
    Our world is getting faster, time is increasingly limited and processes are becoming more complicated. Everyone can spare three minutes – but hardly anyone has 30 minutes. There’s a need everywhere to convey knowledge in as little time as possible – be it instructions, staff training or advertising. simpleshow meets this challenge for you. Every day. Around the world.
  • Where can I use simpleshow classic
    Want to present a technical procedure to an expert audience? Increase acceptance of a change process among your staff? Generate attention for your product? simpleshow classic explains anything, to anyone, anywhere. New uses appear every day. Take a look at our scenarios and let us inspire you.
  • Why is simpleshow classic an “explanatory format”
    simpleshow classic always follows a fixed set of rules: the style of the illustrations, the music, the voiceover and the sound design are carefully coordinated. So you could describe simpleshow classic as a “standardised medium”. Explanatory format sounds better. And takes another attribute into account: the explanation of complex subject matter. But because no single topic is like the other, drafting a concept for these images and text is an individual process. The result is an easily understandable explainer video with a high recognition factor. In short, an explanatory format.
  • How does it work
    Simple: two hands move basic black-and-white illustrations on a white background while a voiceover tells a story that explains a fact, a product or a process in an easily understandable way. A concept that works for every topic, every industry and every target audience. Why? Find out here.
