Why Animation Works so Well in Education

If you work in the education sector, you need to know one important thing – animation works.  It just does.  It’s the perfect medium not only for reaching your target audience, but also for connecting with them and interacting with them.  Want to know more?  Here’s the science bit:


Be Friendly and Professional at the Same Time


Animations are fun and personable, they are welcoming and people love them.  This means that your users are likely to be more open to watching an animation than a conventional film, even if they contain the same content, and that is what makes them ideal for use in education.


If you want to use your video to teach a key lesson on your course or to entice people to sign up with your establishment, you don’t have to compromise on the content you deliver to make it accessible, because the animation opens that door for you.


Animation is Shareable


The holy grail of online content is to be shared and shared widely.  This is how your message reaches your potential clients and it is the reason you need to form a community through animation.


If you have some news to shout about, make an animated video showing off your success and watch your students, staff and other stakeholders share away.  For every share by someone already connected to your establishment, your branded message could be viewed by hundreds of others who might be interested.


Appeal to the pride your current audience feels and watch them put your message to their friends on your behalf.


Keep Communicating


Animated videos are perfect for keeping any kind of business talking.  Communication in all establishments is key and the education sector is no different.  You could send out a newsletter explaining the important messages you need to impart, but you would be so much better off making an animated video and really engaging them.


A lengthy block of text is easy to dismiss and delete but, if you can condense your news into a slick, tight animation, people are more likely to actually watch it and take in the details within.  It’s not only for current students, though, it’s the perfect way to sell your school, college or university to prospective students too.  Keep them entertained and keep them interested and it could really pay dividends!
