Cambridge International Assessment Education | Science Lab Safety Training
Created for the University of Cambridge, the science lab safety video directly aims at educating science students on safe practices in laboratories. They divide the content into 4 main points and steadily instruct learners to follow the preparations and implementations. The guidance is carefully crafted with explicit information. However, the music in the background is distractive and loud, so sometimes it’s hard to focus on the voice-over.
University of New South Wales | Sexual Harassment and Bullying
Students usually find it hard to read and remember the Code of Conduct. UNSW Sydney, in collaboration with F.Learning Studio, found a way to solve this by applying animation into this mental safety training video. Following the Code of Conduct, sexual harassment and bullying are highlighted as a critical issue. Description, instances, and penalties are also mentioned. In this mental health illness training video, animation plays an important role in delivery knowledge. It helps communicate the problem in a more positive sense while maintaining seriousness. Talking-head or live-action health and safety training videos can’t perform as well as animation in this field since they require deliberate and professional acting skills to avoid misunderstanding from facial expressions, voice, and so on. People from different races with traditional costumes, representing cultural diversity at UNSW, are animated skillfully.
