Effective eLearning Voiceover
eLearning has become a primary training mechanism for all industries across the globe and is critical to the education, health, safety, and well-being of our workforce. In addition, it’s also a fundamental learning tool for most primary and secondary schools as well as most tertiary courses of study. With eLearning voiceover, engaging your audience and keeping their attention for a sustained amount of time is crucial to the process and, therefore, the success of any eLearning course. Obtaining a pass of 80% or higher for the non-negotiable components of an eLearning module can be the deciding factor for the successful retention of valuable employees or a student to continue with their studies.

Her friendly, conversational, and captivating narration styles will maximise engagement and information retention and ensure that your learners make it over the finish line with success.
Achieve KPIs and Company Targets
Elearning increases learning retention rates by between 25% and 60%! Compare that to face to face training which is somewhere between 8-10%. A survey of 2,500 companies found that those with comprehensive training programs have 218% higher revenue per employee and 24% higher profit margins.
Maximise Engagement and ROI
Engagement and ROI increase significantly with an experienced voiceover who helps connect learners with the material and ensures a higher retention rate. When you’ve put weeks and months into an educational course, the last thing you want is for disengaged narration to undo all your hard work.
Choosing the Right eLearning Voiceover for Your Course
Professional voiceover for your course can have a huge impact. Firstly, you want a narrator who SUITS the project in their performance. Who is the intended audience? Early primary school students? Senior secondary? Third-year university or a company looking to initiate collective behaviour change? Your learners’ age and experience level will help determine the kind of narration best suits the course, so it’s essential to find a narrator who has the right sound. Equally as important is that your voice artist can deliver in communication, responsiveness, timeliness, and accuracy. An experienced, professional eLearning voiceover can meet all these requirements.
What to Expect From Your Narrator
Clear communication – ensure your narrator understands what you expect in deliverables and timelines.
Responsiveness – emails, phone calls, text messages – however you and your narrator have chosen to communicate, your narrator should respond to your requests within a reasonable amount of time.
Timeliness – not only should your narrator respond to you promptly, but they should also be respectful of deadlines and deliver your recordings within the agreed timeframe.
Accuracy – your narrator should deliver accurate narrations that are free of mistakes, and if one has slipped through, a revision should be provided at no extra cost.
Sample reads – if your narrator doesn’t offer a short read to ensure you are happy with the narration style, ASK for one! It’s crucial to get this right from the get-go and can save a lot of time in the long run.
Working With Your eLearning Voiceover Talent
It’s essential to clarify to your narrator how you want numbers or acronyms pronounced to maintain consistency throughout the course. Similarly, it’s wise to make your narrator is clear on how to say words with more than one correct pronunciation. It’s not uncommon for a narrator to add an extra charge for splitting and naming many files, so you should discuss this in the quoting stage.
Clarify your recording specifications, including the sample rate and bit depth needed. Verify the file format you need, such as WAV, mp3, AIFF, or other formats? Your eLearning voiceover should have a clear revisions policy that outlines what they charge and under what circumstances. Check that pickups (script changes and updates) are available to record WHENEVER you need them, whether next week or next year.
