How long is too long?

3 Mar

When creating a Captivate video you are faced with the challenge of producing content that will both engage the learner and get their attention.

This ultimately means you have to do your best, most engaging work within a time limit of approximately 2-3 minutes. I found that anything longer than 3 minutes and the attention span of your learner will begin to drift.  

Checkout this recent blog post about attention spans and the creation of Captivate e-learning modules:
